wanderlust: a creative piece


noun: wanderlust
  1. a strong desire to travel.
    Recently, I have had this urge to travel. I want to wake up super early, get dressed in  my black Lulu Lemon leggings, a loose white tank top, jean jacket, black fur slides and head to the airport, armed with my black faux leather backpack and phone. I want to arrive at the airport and get all my bags checked, head through security and then grab Starbucks while I wait for my flight. The glorious feeling of my flight being ready to board. After that, there’s that unique experience of getting onto the plane. Squeezing through the aisle to find my seat. Putting my carry-on all the way under the seat in front of me, and have my seat and tray table in the ‘upright and locked position as we prepare for takeoff’. Watching the safety demonstration. Then, that amazing, indescribable adrenaline rush that comes with takeoff. Reaching cruising altitude and imagining what it would be like to live on those big, fluffy clouds. Watching a movie on the little plane TVs, or taking a nap. Finally, landing in my desired destination. Stepping off the plane and stretching my legs. Heading into the chaos that is baggage claim. Finally getting my luggage. Waiting for the car, and heading to the hotel. Checking in and seeing my hotel room. Showering and washing that nasty airplane feeling off of my skin. Changing into clean clothes. Getting lunch and exploring the city. And finally feeling free at last, because I have travelled to a new place with endless possibilities. A new place with no familiar spots; somewhere completely new. Falling in love with the city and wanting to stay forever. The last day of the trip, where I savor every last moment. Then, doing it all over again. Waking up early and going through the same airport process. Landing in my state. Going through baggage claim again. Getting into the car and finally arriving home. Seeing that my house is actually clean and my room is just the way I left it. Taking another shower and washing the airport away. And then finally climbing into my own bed and accepting that I am home at last, and the feeling of wanderlust has faded, for now.
