“The Wanderlust has got me… by the belly-aching fire.” ~ Robert W Service
Sometimes, just as I’m trying to be sensible and telling myself I’ll stay in my current (contract) job role as long as the client continue to request extensions for new projects… a little voice pipes up and screeches at me that no, no, no, it’s time to go! It’s time to wander and explore and thrill at the wide world out there waiting for me!
I have to remind myself that, whilst I totally believe in the importance of enjoying life day to day, that I also need and want to balance that with being sensible, creating a nest egg for our future years.
Sometimes, being sensible is hard… especially when the wanderlust is fiery hot in my belly!

Fantastic quote! I can totally relate! I have no sensibility when it comes to travel. I need to travel often. 🙂
I can totally relate what you want to say. I too have high been bitten by wanderlust badly but my husband calms me down by explaining the same things.It is important to be sensible too.
Ugh, this makes me want to go back to Kenya. I spent three weeks in the Meru region and I think I left a small piece of my heart there.
My young me can relate to the quote. But I’m not at that age anymore. Maybe once my son is in college. 😉 So, don’t let the wanderlust burns your belly for long!
This is a passionate cry for sure. Nice quote and just looked up Service. Thanks for introducing me to his poetry. Ian
I just love this quote by Robert W Service The Wanderlust got me many years ago and I finally tool the plunge and left my 9-5 job 2 years ago… The wanderlust just keeps getting stronger.
safe to say the wanderlust has got me as well!
