noun: wanderlust
         1. a strong desire to travel.
               "a man consumed by wanderlust"
I've always wanted to travel but I've never had the guts to do it.

I've seen people come and go, but it still hasn't pushed me to take the plunge and move somewhere exotic or even go on an extended holiday. Maybe it's my anxiety holding me back, the what ifs and the buts, or maybe I've just realised deep down that I'm not as spirited as I think I am.

I guess the reason I'm thinking about this at the moment is due to the mortgage things we've had to sort out recently. Once you get a mortgage it's kind of like right, ok, this is my life now.What next?

Every day I'm daydreaming about going to Hawaii or California. I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, especially after watching Blue Crush as a teenager. I wanted to be a surfer and spend most of my time in the water but that obviously never happened!

Chris and I would love to travel around Australia or America, but now we're pretty settled in Bristol I don't see this happening. Never say never though!

Where would you recommend to go for newbie travellers? I mean I've looked into interrailing and that looks pretty fun or possibly a trip to Iceland to see the beautiful Northern Lights. Where have you been?
