I'm not sure what it is lately but I have been feeling restless. I have always felt like I have never belonged where I live, but the feeling has been particularly present as of late. I reckon I'm getting to that age now where people are "settling down." That word terrifies the heck out of me. Settle...as in, accept your current situation, possibly for the rest of your life (okay, I might be exaggerating a tad). When I made my first over seas trip to Paris I was only 15, I didn't know quite what to expect. I walked away from that trip a different person, being able to experience a completely different culture/ scenery/custom, I feel is something everyone should experience. There hasn't been a day that's gone by when I don't think back on that trip. I really hope I am able to make a return journey and hopefully this time I can conquer more of Europe.
