I'm getting wanderlust. HARD. I've been back in Boise for 2.5 years and am starting to feel like "world traveler" is fading from my identity. I feel like being a "world traveler" isn't an accomplishment, a title to mark some certain point in your life or a concrete achievement like "Nobel Prize Winnder" or "Olympic Qualifier" or "Prom King/Queen." It's not something you can even call someone who used to travel a lot but now just sits at home. To me, that person would be a "person who has traveled the world." Being a world traveler is a title you have to maintain and keep hold of through action. You have to earn it. And I want to earn it back.
