I believe everyone has a little bit of wanderlust in them. For those who aren't familiar with the term, it's a German word that means having a strong desire to travel. Who doesn't want to travel the world? Granted, not all of us have the time and money to travel where ever and whenever we want but that doesn't mean we wouldn't love to if given the opportunity.
