Do you ever want to be somewhere else?

If you could be anywhere, where would you be right now? Would you stay or just visit?

I have such a wanderlust in me. I also sometimes just want to escape, to have an adventure, to get out of the routine of my life.

My need to explore new places, to breathe air and experience life in a different setting has always been a thing for me ever since I was a teenager basically locked up in our house day after day. That need has calmed in the last several years as I’ve learned the extreme importance of basking in the sitting still and enjoying how blessed I am to have the sense of home that I do. But there are so many times I just want to be here, far away from man and feeling at home on another level.

As I was unpacking my travel books yesterday, I began daydreaming (again) of faraway places. There are new places to discover and old places to revisit again to create new memories.

My summer affair with salt water is booked already! 😅😎

@CookieCrumbs I have seven trips planned this year so far. I leave for one on Sunday, and I can't wait! 😄

That. Exactly! 💖
The year is mapped out. It’s just a matter of booking the trips. Only the saltwater trip is booked and paid for. It’s so cold here that all I could think about is the beach. 😎

@CookieCrumbs I understand! Can't wait to dip my toes in the Caribbean next week!

i am somewhere else... and soon i will be in a different somewhere else.
KiwiBird · 31-35, F
@Yulianna Just as long as you're not a different someone else. 🤣
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Yulianna Stay safe! ❤️

Wanderlust took me all over the world, but it has its drawbacks, and no matter where I am, every once in a while, my mind wanders back to that one spot on the beach, off Hwy 1, where we used to start a beach fire, and cook freshly caught fish, and then it dawns on me: there's a Ritz Carlton on that spot now.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Northwest I love Half Moon Bay, Laguna Niguel, and Santa Barbara! :)
Northwest · M
@ChampagneOnIce Half Moon Bay was my extended "backyard". It used to be a small fishing/agricultural village. Now the Ritz sits where we used to hang out.

I've stayed a few times, for business and personal, at the Laguna Niguel Ritz, but not Santa Barbara and Half Moon Bay. Love Santa Barbara, but have not been in years.

My favorite hotel in Laguna Niguel, is the Surf and Sand.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Northwest I love the Surf and Sand as well. I've stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay and Laguna Niguel, but I haven't been to Bacara yet. Such beautiful places and resorts!

I haven’t travels since last Thursday. I am ready to go again somewhere, almost anywhere but I would greatly enjoy going to a warm white sand beach with the salt air breeze flowing through a resort. Drinks would flow freely and smiles would be abundant..

ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Jlhzfromep That sounds idillic! ❤️
Jlhzfromep · M
@ChampagneOnIce it is my happy place
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Jlhzfromep Mine, too :)

@Margo So pretty!
Where my family is is where I want to be. Cheesy but it’s true.

If oxygen wasn't an issue i want to live on the moon. 🧙‍♂️
Fungirlmmm · 51-55
I used to, but i guess not anymore.
I am also such a vagabond at heart….but today, I’m really happy in my home…alone, but enjoying this privacy. And surprisingly this extrovert wants to just cozy up and be indoors. 🥴 I wish Rutters was here with me….🕺🏼✨
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Vivaci It's a very snowy day here. I'd love to be snuggled in bed!
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@JesseInTX I love the Caribbean! 💙
All the time but I just pictured myself in some damned rented apartment in a city where I don't know anyone and could tell how unsafe and "alone in the world" that would make me feel.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@CrazyMusicLover Hmmm... When I think about that I get excited about the experience, the new culture, the new air, the adventures ahead. I'd love to work somewhere else for a month or so and experience something new and different from what I know.
@ChampagneOnIce I usually feel like that in summer or autumn. Now it's cold and dark and I just want to be alone at a familiar place where I could feel safe.
Starcrossed · 41-45, F
I pretty much exist in a perpetual stateorf feeling like I want to be somewhere else. Even when at home.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Starcrossed I understand. I love my home, but I have to leave to appreciate it.
Bluebirdsonmyshoulder · 46-50, F
I used to wish to be elsewhere, but I am so comfortable within my home, I am somewhat uncomfortable out of it.
As Alan Rickman ( Hans Gruber) says in Die Hard.
I wanna be on a beach earning 20%.....

ravenhillofKrull · 46-50, MVIP
for sure, id love to be in my mothers homeland right now, the isle of man but instead i'm stuck in cheshire.
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
Yes! I absolutely do. ☺️
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
@ChampagneOnIce awesome, have a fantastic time! What city are you going to?
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Jeephikelove Playa del Carmen
I haven’t been there before, and I’m looking forward to visiting that side of the country.
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
@ChampagneOnIce Ooooh nice! When I finally go, that’s where I’m going too. ☺️
jackpotato · 41-45, M
Half Moon Bay? that's really close to me
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@jackpotato I love it there!
jackpotato · 41-45, M
@ChampagneOnIce I guess I can't see that what with the 🌊 and nature
No, I always want to be here, even when I can’t be.
Just here.
Only here.
Faloney · M
Poor Jimmy was perplexed no end 'bout this -

ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Faloney Ha! Good one. I’d forgotten that song.
Freeranger · M
I've got something for you.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Freeranger Hmmm... True that there's no place like home, but you appreciate it more when you travel to other places.
I feel this way. I love that there’s a word for it.
On the rod in hand. Always
Parts of everyday are spent feeling that way, whether about the next place I haven't been yet .. or going back to those I loved most.

I have a travel personals bag that I never unpack. I just restock it when needed, so it is always ready to be thrown in with the right set of clothes.
Yes, often.

Back to California, Boston, WDC...and Europe of course, Germany, Italy, France, the UK, Greece, etc., etc., etc.

Cali in May, it seems...

Laying on a beach in the Caribbean
Jlhzfromep · M
@ChampagneOnIce it is wonderful.. the water is nice and the sand never gets hot on your feet
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Jlhzfromep I love that! Can’t wait!!
Jlhzfromep · M
@ChampagneOnIce what resort will you be going to? I have been to 4 or 5 there....they all were good
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
Yes I do! On a regular basis actually. Right now I would love to be in Key West. I just want to be warm. My wife and I love taking long road trips.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
@ChampagneOnIce Fortunately my wife and I are retired and we have a motorhome so we enjoy going out for 3 to 5 weeks at a time and bringing our rolling home with us.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
@Stereoguy Many people love the RV life. Great that you both enjoy it!
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
@ChampagneOnIce She was actually the one that talked me into it. I was the skeptic until trying it.
