Aliza, one of my best friends and former college roommate, is definitely the one person I know with an infinite amount of wanderlust. She’s been all over the world and back. She’s been to Israel, she’s lived in Cairo, she studied abroad in Spain, and before she starts grad school in the fall, she plans on checking out parts of Asia she has yet to see.

I, on the other hand, have never been to Europe or anywhere really foreign. I’ve never even left North America. I hardly consider Mexico a different country sometimes, due to how often I go there. So, I am often jealous of Aliza’s adventures. I’m honestly a little jealous of anyone who’s been out in the world.

I’ve toyed with the idea of traveling outside of the country for some time now. Friends (like Jamie) have mentioned the idea of it and every time someone does, the need to travel grows. The other day, I asked Aliza offhandedly if she would ever consider traveling to South America with me, to which she replied, “Of course! Let’s do it. When do you wanna go?”

And the more we talked about it, the more I seriously considered it. I’ve never tapped into my own wanderlust, always coming up with excuses not to. I didn’t do study abroad because I told myself I could never afford it. Now, I keep telling myself things like, I just need to save up more money. I need to plan the time away from work. Now is just not the right time.

I’m tired of making excuses. I’m almost 25 and I feel like there’s so much exploring I have yet to even do. I’m not saying this could happen this year, but 2012 is a definite possibility.

So, where in South America? I want to see…

Beaches in Brazil…

Mountains and Machu Picchu in Peru…

And cityscapes in Chile.

I love possibility of it and my next biggest goal is to make it a reality. With friends like Aliza, I definitely think it will happen. <3
