Travel is Life

Monday morning my internet went out and my blogging every day streak got postponed while I waited on  the powers that be at Sky to fix the problem.  Luckily today my internet and landline are back to working.  So I apologize for not having Travel Tuesday up and hope you have all been able to link up with Belinda this week!  If you have not linked up yet I have the link up below.  This is Belinda’s last week of co-hosting the Travel Tuesday link up with me as she focuses on other avenues with her blog. Please make sure to let her know how much you loved having her as a cohost. :)

Travel is life. Short and sweet that message has been my life.  The fact that I have not lived in one place for longer than three years at a time solidifies that statement even more.  Even if I am not traveling this month, on a plane to another country I feel like I am traveling in lifestyle.  I have only lived in my current city for the last nine months and in three months we will be moving again.  Not out of England but perhaps to another town. It is just my life of a highly nomadic person who constantly feels called to be somewhere else.

Next Trip.  The next place I have my heart set on traveling to is Austria.  It holds a lot of special memories for me with my life growing up in Europe.  It is the one place that I really feel closest to my dad. We used to go snowboarding and skiing there through out the years.  If you have read my blog for a while you will have heard me mention Germknödel as a food I miss eating in Austria.  Germknödel is a fluffy yeast dough dumpling with a mix of poppy seeds and sugar, filled with spicy plum jam and melted butter on top, often eaten with custard on top. I used to love ordering it after a day of snowboarding.  I have not had it in so long that I think of it a lot. Which brings me back to what it is like when travel is life.  You travel and move so much that you miss things all over the world. Things that you can not easily satisfy and may take years in waiting. But I would not give up or trade this life for any other.

    I love your mantra… and I think I’ve subconsciously followed it too. The times in my life when I’ve been most happy I’ve been on the move… riding motos in Rwanda, scuba diving in Egypt, treading through flood water in Burma… the best. xxx

    I haven’t lived in the same place longer than three years either since I was 18 so I know how ya feel. It can be exciting and exhausting at the same time. Definitely makes you a different person. I haven’t been to Austria yet, but my husband has distant family there so I am so excited to visit. Plus they say it’s a lot like Bavaria and I am loving Bavaria right now. Also, if you ever need a new cohost, I’d love to help you out :)

    Mmmm, that dumpling does sound delicious!
    I wonder if I will feel the same as you feel once I’m more settled in a country, the need to move from town to town. I like to think I would because I love the excitement and exploration, but I have just never considered it like that before!
