Travel Bug …. It is official I now have the travel bug ….can’t do anything about it but I sure have it , having done so much travelling , and now having been home for 3 years I want to go again . There are so many places I still want to see , places I have only waved at as I went past , but now have an urge to go see them in more detail , the beauty and the allure of these places is overwhelming to me. Having to just stay home and do the ” wife ” thing all this time ( lol sorry dear ) I am about ready to go again , have got itchy feet to get moving again and see more of the beauty this world has to offer , and trust me it has so much to offer still it just calls out to be visited . So many places so little time , and yes so little money ( dammit ) every day you see on TV on social media pictures of places you have never seen and of places you have only been able to wave at , but not had the time to go visit properly .
The 1st place that springs to my mind is Paris , waved at it as I went past but had no time to go in and it has always had an attraction to me for some reason would love to be able to stand in front of that tower and just see the majesty of such a structure . Then there is Italy again no time to go but to be able to stand in front of the tower of Pizza and wonder at what men have built it must be amazing to see in real life. Germany is another place I want to see, not as I did before in just a couple of days but to be able to have more time there to really see the place. The Rhine River, the castles , the markets , all only seen briefly but would love to take more time and go further into Germany than I got before . Japan also is a place I would love to see from the pictures I have seen it just looks so lovely and the people seem to be so nice.
China too is a place I would love to see especially The Great Wall that would be awesome to stand and see that in real life so to speak , and I so love chinese food lol , and to be able to get that right at the source would be just great , and to see the markets too the way they do them also the architecture it looks so good would love to see it up close . Hong Kong is yet another place that I would so love to see , there was a time a few years back when I was about to go there but that did not eventuate so have not been there . Poland too and Russia and all those in between , lol the saying comes to mind so many places so little time , and it is so true if I could go see all the places I would love to I would never be home , lol , sounds good to me , there is only housework here and thats boring .
When passing through some of the airports I have , I have only ever got a glimpse of some of these countries , and that has just whetted my appetite to want to see more of them , some of the airports are just so amazing gives you an idea of what the country itself would be like if you could visit. Some though to be fair are dead set awful and make you wonder what the country is like inside , so far though I have only seen 1 such airport like that the rest have just made me wish I could go explore more . The 1 constant thing about airports though is that no matter how good or bad they are they are a right pain in the proverbial , lol, it always seems to take forever to get from the side your on , whether coming or going to where you need to be . By the time you show your ticket , your passport , your travel documents , just doing that can take over an hour , then of course there is the luggage side of the equation and there goes another hour or so * sigh * Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to take luggage ? How much quicker would that make your trip ?
So the travel bug , lol , yes even after all the messing about it takes to just get from 1 place to another yep still got it , still want to go , would be off tomorrow if I could no worries . The thing is just sitting here day after day and seeing very little is just so boring and all the travelling I have already done has just opened my eyes to what else there might be there to see and I do so much want to go see . There are so many other countries I have not listed yet , lol, would fill this up if I named them all , that my itchy feet would love to be walking around , seeing to use another well known quote ” how the other half lives ” and we all know that no 2 lots of people live the same way so the differences would be fascinating to see , well for me anyway just to be able to learn from them , I am always ready to learn something new and to appreciate what others have done .
So all in all despite all the hassles of travelling I would in a heartbeat be off to explore this wonderful world if I could , all the places I have not yet seen , just for the learning about other places and other people , to see how much different they are to me , and to see how they do things as opposed to the way I do them , we can learn so much from each other if we are open minded and willing to learn. Maybe 1 day huh ?
No. I’m not talking to myself because I’m crazy, I’m talking to myself because it’s the only intelligent conversation I can get around here sometimes!!
