Wanderful Words No. 18: A Rare Passing up of Travel

“Sometimes the cure for restlessness is rest.”

– Colleen Wainwright

I am officially on spring break now. I often feel an urgency about taking advantage of my designated time off  to explore a new destination. This year, I didn’t get much of a chance to plan anything for spring break. And I while the list of destinations I want to visit is long, I struggled to think of an affordable place that I really wanted to go to for just a week.

But I still halfheartedly searched for flight deals this past week before having a moment of realization– I was stressing myself out in an effort to find a place where I could de-stress.  So I’ve decided to stick around, get stuff done (writing!), get a lot of sleep and maybe take a local trip to nature for a few days. Not as exotic or as exciting as I was hoping, but it sounds like exactly what I need right now.

Oh, Ekua, I feel you. I always do this. But, good call on your part! In the end, I love when I pick reading and writing. Sometimes the best escapes are internal. Enjoy!

Sometimes that’s just what you need. I usually feel that travel urgency too, but as your quote said, sometimes the cure for restlessness is rest.
