Calling to Travel

Calling to Travel

I never really know where I will travel to next.

Over the years I have felt very aware of the fact that certain countries or places ‘call me’ to them. It’s like something is dragging me to that destination and I have to go, no questions asked. I don’t know if it is a spiritual thing or a sixth sense.

It always ends up being the most significant and life changing experiences abroad. I also travel to places I haven’t been called to and have a great time, but it’s not the same.

The first time it happened was with Bali, Indonesia. I can’t really explain it, I just knew I had to visit. I can’t do Bali justice by writing about it in a blog, I will save that one for an e-book one day. It has since happened with Vietnam which was also a life changing experience.  

After returning from Vietnam, people have been asking me where I am visiting next. I do some research and have a think, but until a destination grabs me by the hand and pulls me towards it, I do not decide. And so, I wait. Wait for the time when somewhere leaps off the map and plants a seed in my brain that I cannot escape from until I go there.

This has just happened to me, the next destination calling is to Iceland. I love the feeling of being called to a place. 

Do you ever experience this?
