Utflykter - check!

Nu är det bara två veckor kvar till resan och jag förstår bara inte vart tiden tar vägen. Tyvärr hamnar bloggen lite i skymundan just nu. Hur som helst, nu har jag äntligen bokat utflykterna. Väldigt sent! Det blir inte så många, vilket känns synd, men utflykterna i Australien är mycket, mycket dyra. Inte alls vad jag är van vid då jag ofta åker till ställen där det är billigt inom landet, även om det är dyrt att flyga dit. Så som Bali, Sri Lanka, Mexiko, Egypten, Dubai, Kenya, och ja, även Maldiverna. Mycket billigare än Australien, och Hawaii för den delen som verkar ligga på samma summor.
 
 I Mexiko hade jag en period på åtta dagar med utflykter varje dag. En dag till och med två.
Jag var överlycklig!
 
 
 

60 tecken på att du lider av wanderlust

Jag hittade lite påståenden från olika engelska sidor och satte ihop dem här.
I princip 99% av punkterna passar in på mig.

Hur många passar in på dig?

 

Wanderlust, like many diseases, comes with its own symptoms and side effects. Like a plague, it comes down on some with a vengeance and may never be cured. It can leave those stricken with lifelong symptoms and years of money and time spent trying to diagnose the incurable disease. It leaves children and adults impaired, unable to function properly through their daily routines many of us take for granted. Because, like any sickness, its side effects can be damaging.

The wanderer cannot help his or her sickness any more than someone with the common cold. It’s a bug that takes over and flushes itself through the system, yet this one refuses to leave after a few days of Emergen-C and hot water with lemon. It’s damaging to the brain, the body and the mind; it takes hod and refuses to let go. It’s a disease inflicted by ourselves on ourselves, and there’s really nothing we can do about it, but hope to pacify the side effects.

We must learn to live with them, the way one learns to live with pain. It’s a constant ache that becomes part of our existence, like a bum leg. So for all of you trying to diagnose those aches and pains, here are the signs it’s probably just wanderlust.
