Spending all day looking at various blogs, photographers, projects and travel-logues has made me crave adventure on a near daily basis. I want to be taking those photographs, climbing those mountains and getting lost in arid desserts. I dream of getting hiking in forests and camping by the beach with a group of friends, making a fire and taking photographs as the sun sets and people are illuminated with that special golden hour light. Daily life just doesn’t really cut it when you think of all those things you’re missing out on, all those endless possibilities.
The reality is, most people cannot just drop their responsibilites and run off on a grand trip every few months or even weeks. Maybe one day I’ll be able to take more regular travels, but right now I am ploughing through the every day just in order to attain that one trip. The summer months make me both happy to be here and even more desperate to escape to new places. It’s a strange place to be, but while I have my friends around me, I’m happy being here.
