Do you ever get that tightness in your throat, like you’re about to cry?

But you don’t know why?

Do you ever get that ache in your heart, like you crave something desperately?

But you don’t know what?

Do you ever just feel empty, like a part of you is missing?

But you can’t figure it out?

Do you ever feel like you just want to leave straight away?

Like your sad, sadistic city is slowly driving you insane?

Ever just want to pack a bag and leave it all behind?

Travel the world and hope you like what you find?

That my dear friend is called wanderlust

And we all feel it from time to time
