It may start in your ears, whether from the inspirational words of a speaker or the pulse-pounding beats of a musical artist. It may begin in your eyes, as you drink in the surrounding natural beauty or learn to align a challenging pose. It may start in your heart, as you make new friends or experience the joy of trying something you've never dared to do.
Regardless of what starts you on your path, Wanderlust is an experience that will leave you different than when you came with new ideas, new friends, newly discovered abilities, and greater peace. Find your true north.
