15 unusual phrases to trigger your wanderlust

In this post, I want to share those phrases that will make anyone want to grab a suitcase and launch all to the air and undertake a journey with – or without – destination.

Traveling is a tool of self-knowledge that incorporates interpersonal knowledge, while at the same time strengthening self-esteem, survival skills (yes, if you don’t believe me, check out this nonsense). Wanderlust is a real state of mind, and mostly, a way of living.

Among the innumerable benefits of traveling, it teaches us to enjoy life, the here and now. It inspires us to be better people, to recognize cultural differences and to provide for similarities. Traveling brings us closer to nature, allowing us to understand, to explore and learn to take care of the environment. To travel is to realize that the world has been created to be discovered by our senses.

And they don’t know how to rest.”
