currently: listening to Hallelujah from Panic! at the Disco.
I don't know if it's because I'm 23 or because it's just the year everyone wants to travel, but it's like everyone took the opportunity to go to America, or Europe, or Fiji, or Japan on holiday or their big OEs... While I'm still here in little same Auckland. And I'm not going to lie, I'm envious.
So what do you do when you're by yourself and your Facebook/Instagram timelines are filled with happy, colourful travel snaps?
Sit alone by yourself and hate on the world.
Well not actually. But I've realised that it's worthless to just stare with scorn at my social media feeds. I've got time to use that those people travelling can't do. So I wrote a list of things that will deal with my envious nature, and maybe yours too.
Things to do to beat wanderlust envy.
1). Watch lots of TV shows.
2). Get buff.
3). Eat at all the fancy places in your town.
4). Become an expert in a language for the places you do want to go.
5.) Learn from their travels.
Okay I'm more serious about this one. Yeah it sucks to still be living a routine life but there is always the benefit to find out from them what are the best sights to see and the best places to stay. Think of them as your vacation test dummy. Their travel tales can only help you make your trip better. So write a list, plan your ultimate vacation trip and start saving, cause that is already putting your wanderlust envy into wanderlust action.
