This is about the wanderlust side of me and I know everyone has a little bit of wander in them! When I was younger, our family of six would go on vacations to places like Cuba, Cancun, and Puerto Vallarta. However, the older my siblings and I became the more difficult it became financially to go on vacations. The last vacation I went on was to Florida for a week. It was a lot of fun during my time there but I have always wanted to see more. It has been five years since my family and I went on a vacation and my wanderlust craving continues to keep getting larger each year. I love watching The Real World on MTV where a certain number of people are selected to live together for three months somewhere gorgeous! The previous season, they went to St. Thomas and even though I was not there I fell in love with the place! They met so many new people, enjoyed the beautiful weather, and grew as people! I have always wanted to travel ever since I was younger. I would love to become a reporter and have the ability to travel the world, meet people, eat new things, and really learn about myself during all of it! I want to feel the thrill of it all and be able to say I have traveled to more than three places outside of Canada! I have always dreamt of a better place then where I am currently living. I knew that there had to be bigger, more beautiful and new things to offer me in this world. All of my life I have lived in either Mississauga or Oakville, Ontario with both places not as glamorous as Paris or Hawaii. Now do not get me wrong, I have been outside of Canada before when I was younger. I have been to Cuba, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Florida but still those four places did not fill my wanderlust craving. With still being eighteen I have plenty of time to make plans to go traveling. I have always dreamed of just gathering essentials and go backpacking through a gorgeous place like Rome or Thailand. I have had this wanderlust craving ever since I was a little girl. I would watch travel and fantasy movies where people fall in love under the Eiffel tower right when it light up at night, or finding treasure on a beautiful beach! Of course I know, that will not happen to me but even meeting new people, eating new foods and finding myself in the process. That is probably the biggest reasons on why I am so passionate to travel, to find myself and really embrace the beauty of different cultures and the world!
