Have you ever wondered what a new city would be like or how a new country would make you feel? What about constantly dreaming of taking vacations to tropical islands? If so, Iím happy to tell you that wanderlust fever has come upon you. Below I have listed five ways you can recognize that you have wanderlust fever. Donít be fooled, there is no antibiotic that will cure this sickness. The only cure for it is to go out and explore the world. Travel as much as you can.
1. You daydream about a destination
The first sign of wanderlust fever is constantly daydreaming about a place youíve always wanted to visit. You go through each day and you canít get this trip or place out of your head. No matter how busy you are during your day, you still have time to sit and daydream about that place you want to visit. Most of us have many places that we want to see. Some are big trips and some are short weekend trips. Start curing this sickness by checking these places off your list. Take the small trips first if it isnít a convenient time to take the bigger trips. Taking the small trips will keep you satisfied until you can go on the bigger trips. Not going on any trips can affect your life in a very negative way. Donít let it get to that point. Book a trip now.
2. You look at pictures of beautiful places
Another sign of wanderlust fever is looking at pictures of these destinations daily. It is one thing to daydream about your destinations but now you are looking at pictures of the places you want to visit every single day. I believe that looking at pictures of what you want can inspire you to eventually take that trip but it is important to actually go on the trip instead of just dreaming about it. I found that when I got to this point, it was time to book the trip. After going on this adventure, you get to come back and look through pictures again, except this time they are pictures that you are in, not just somewhere online.
3. You hear the ocean in a seashell
Iím sure everyone has heard the old saying, ďIf you put your ear up to the seashell you can hear the ocean.Ē Some people hear it and some people donít. After some deep thinking, I realized that I could hear the ocean in the seashell because thatís what I wanted to hear and thatís where my mind was when listening into the seashell. If you hear the sound of the ocean in the seashell, that means you are seeing signs of wanderlust fever and that you need to take a trip to a beautiful beach as soon as possible.
4. You get anxious to take a trip
Getting anxious to take a trip is a very obvious sign itís time to go somewhere. When I say you get anxious to take a trip, I donít mean the nervousness of going somewhere youíve never been before, I mean the eagerness of finally taking a trip and going somewhere. I find that when I donít take a trip in a few months, I start to get anxious about getting stuck in the same scene and same routine. To avoid this feeling, take some of those smaller trips every couple of months. This allows you to keep your happiness at a high level without feeling like you will never get to see the places you want to see.
5. You constantly check for deals
Constantly checking online for deals on hotels, airline tickets, and entertainment on specific destinations is a very clear sign that you have wanderlust fever and you are well on your way to curing the sickness. If you find yourself searching for good deals weekly, even daily, that means it is time to book your trip and get your satisfaction of traveling and visiting the place that is always on your mind. Everybody wants to save as much money as possible on trips but you can constantly search for good deals for a very long time and still not find the deal you are looking for. Which puts you off from booking the trip. Donít spend too much time looking for the right deal†-†if you find one that is close, book it.
Traveling and seeing the places youíve always dreamed of can give you an incredible feeling. Being able to see the places youíve always imagined can enhance your happiness and help you enjoy your life that much more. So if you have caught the wanderlust fever, there is no better time to book a trip than right now. Go for it. Your happiness depends on it.
