What Is Wanderlust?
According to Merriam-Webster, "The etymology of wanderlust is a very simple one that you can probably figure out yourself. 'Wanderlust' is lust (or 'desire') for wandering. The word comes from German, in which wandern means 'to wander,' and Lust means 'desire.'" Or in other words, wanderlust is exactly as it sounds, a lust to wander / travel.
What Does Wanderful Mean?
If you have any type of wanderlust, you are of course a wanderful soul. Wanderful is an adjective that describes anyone who has a desire for travel, roaming the land, and being as free as the wind. It describes anyone with an apatite and wanderlust for experiencing the world. For an even better description, here is the definition from Urban Dictionary:
"(adjective) to describe a person who randomly roams, wanders, meanders, rambles, stumbles, or strays in a full-time mode. Can also be used to describe the mind."
To be a wanderful soul is a way of life. It is a person who lives freely and lives life the way it should be, happily experiencing the world. Travel broadens our minds and deepens our souls, we should jump at any chance we get to take a trip, no matter the duration of time or distance it takes us. Travel is definitely a privilege and if you are lucky enough be be able to travel often, don't take it for granted and get up and go!
