Wanderlust

Have you ever felt that urge to break free and travel and travel? Probably, without a reason and not a care about the season! Well this urge is what's called 'Wanderlust' - a very strong or irresistible impulse to travel. I happened to read about Alastair Humphreys, who has taken wanderlust to extremes. He's set upon a mission to cover the entire world on his bicycle! In his own words 'Now I am doing the job properly: 50,000 miles, 5 continents, 50 countries. Alone and on a bicycle. No buses, no hitching, no support vehicles'. To know more about this wonderful person have a look at this page. To see snaps of this world traveller take a peep here. Here's wishing Al bon voyage!

OOH!
This is soo exactly my sentiments RIGHT NOW!!!

Just take off..somewhere..anywhere...and well not know where, till when and just get onto a train and get down at any place that invites you-implusively!

Your blog is bingo on the timing!

Awesome! Wish I could do that, though cycling would not get me further than a mile :))
