Wanderlust Wednesday ✈︎ November 2016

This Wanderlust Wednesday I’m feeling so inspired and so unbelievably full of wanderlust because my husband and I just bought ONE-WAY TICKETS to Bangkok! We have no real agenda, we have hopes to travel as long as possible and I’ve been drooling over amazingly beautiful blog posts about potential adventures! I’m finding inspiration in every tiny thing and that is such a refreshing + excited feeling! Here are some things to hopefully help inspire you in November!

Listen ✈︎

My dear friend Lilly shared this amazing song after she took her first solo hike and I instantly fell in love with it! It’s so amazingly empowering and full of nature / wanderlust themes. I highly recommend adding this song to your wanderlust playlist!

Watch ✈︎

The way tells the story of a man whose son dies while doing the Camino de Santiago. He flies to France to pick up his son’s remains and belongings. Instead of going back home, he decides to stay and hike the Camino in honor of his son, spreading his ashes along the way. Along the way, while processing his grief,  he meets a crew of people who are hiking the Camino for their own reasons and they find themselves all on a trek of discovery. 

Words From Wanderers ✈︎

“For some reason, we see long-term travel to faraway lands as a recurring dream or an exotic temptation, but not something that applies to the here and now. Instead out of our insane duty to fear, fashion and monthly payments on things we don’t need – we quarantine our travels to short, frenzied bursts.”

Rolff Potts

“I’d like to repeat the advice that I gave you before, in that I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

From My Pin Boards ✈︎

Lately My Pinterest has been exploding with some absolutely stunning photos of must-sees for my next Southeast Asian adventure! We’re starting in Thailand, so Chiang Mai has been stuck in my mind along with my deep desire to get to Myanmar!

    Is that possible these days? If you don’t have a return ticket, won’t they ask for a bond? Anyway, that is certainly the very best way to travel — keeping the options open, ‘skipping over the ocean like a stone.’ Good for you.

    Wait girl?? What do you mean a one-way ticket to Bangkok? Is this the start of your RTW trip together? I just watched The Way a couple of months ago and its inspired me to embark on my own Camino on my dad’s ten year death anniversary. It def has to happen. Alsooooo I am in love with Myanmar! Will be going with my cousin from Jan. 27 – Feb.1. Maybe we can sync up?

      It is the start of our RTW Trip! We’re starting in Asia and reevaluating where to go next from there! Hoping it’ll be Morocco and Europe!
      Isn’t it a wonderful movie? I’m so excited to hear about your Camino Trek, if you choose to share about it. I hope it will bring you more peace.
      We aren’t leaving until October. So, you’ll beat me to Myanmar, but I’ll get to get all of your amazing tips. I hate that we keep missing each other in Asia by a few months. I’m dying to travel with you again!

    Congratulations! What an exciting adventure that you are about to embark on!!! Bangkok is an awesome place to start too. Looking forward to seeing more of your journey. Liking these recommendations as well – I was just talking to a friend about doing the Camino so this film would be great to watch.

      Thank you so much! Bangkok is fun, but it’s also insanely cheap to fly into! We got an amazing price!
      Thank you! I would love to do the Camino and The Way totally inspired that trip even more! I think you’d like it, especially since you’re already interested! Cheers!

      Thank you very much! I’m really excited about it. I visited last year, but only for two weeks. This time we’re staying out our visa. Plus, I can’t wait to take my husband.
