The itch to travel

Is there anything else that can scratch

My itch for travel, can anything else match

The lure of physically being in a new place

Away from the bustle of city life, in an open space..

Not that I don’t travel vicariously

I let books, food and music transport me

To different places quite often indeed

But those indulgences do not fill the need

For physical travel, the craving is still there

But I have no trips planned anywhere…


Is travel a means of escape for me

Or do I just want pictures instagram-worthy

Or am I trying to keep up with the Joneses this way

Perhaps all of the above are involved, I would say

But the overarching reason to travel is one

I long for new experiences at every turn

The plethora of experiences in a new destination

Is what I travel for- that’s the best explanation


In a nutshell the only thing that would satisfy

The urge to travel is travel itself, therefore I

Should start planning my next trip now

So that I can travel when circumstances allow
