It’s impossible to tell when it will happen. For some it’s like a lightning bolt to the brain – setting off that internal alarm clock that you never knew you had. For others it’s a slow, gradual creeping which conspires to eventually overrun your waking thoughts. No matter how it happens there is only one result – a complete and utter inability to focus on anything else. It will become all you think about, all you talk about (much to the annoyance of your friends), all you dream about and, as it become a real possibility, all you worry about!
The desire to travel comes from many places (and in turn leads to many places). For me it came out of a mixture of depression and jealousy (not the greatest motivation for a life changing experience I agree) however it lead me to incredible places, insane experiences and a potentially deadly run in with petrol seafood!
What follows is not a lecture on, or a promotion of, the experiences of travelling the world but rather a result of my friends having heard all of my stories and my desire to tell them to others!
