Ooh man to live

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. ~ St. Augustine.

What is it that gives me this need to travel? This uncontrollable want to see the world. I can't be happy in Chicago..why? I meet so many people everyday that move here everyday to come live in this beautiful city. So many of my newest friends are transplants from all over the states who have wanted to move here for so long. I can't wait for the day I can say "Goodbye Chicago". It's not just an idea anymore. Its this part of me that feels empty every time I go on a vacation and have to come back. I leave a little part of me every where that I visit hoping that I will return and find it once again.

I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine. ~Cassie Stinnett

I do the day to day and work hard just so that I can have a trip to look forward to. I've contemplated getting a second job so that I can have more money to travel. Some people look at this and think "She just wants to party". That's my fault, the biggest trips I have been on this past few years have been to party. Do not mistake this for a phase. Do not mistake this for a need to party. This is a deep rooted, inexplicable feeling in my heart that tells me that I need it.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindness. ~Mark Twain

I want to see the world. I want to learn why the traditions in certain places are so important. I want to see all the beaches, the mountains, the jungles, the rich, the poor, the food...Ooh the food. I want to see it all. I want to learn the language, the trades that help make their living, I want to climb the pyramids, learn the history. I want to be able to tell someone why they shouldn't hate these people, why they are mistaken, what they don't know that would make them open their eyes. I have a need to live someplace new, to see if what I have here, here in this country, in this state, is as great as we all think it is.

It's in my blood, in my heart. I don't mind spending the rest of my life making it happen.
