Wander Girl

I’m Wander Girl because that’s what I do. I wander. I’ve been wandering all my life.

I didn’t come from wealth, so even traveling to neighboring islands was a luxury. But that never stopped me. Locked up in my room, I traveled all over the world through the books that I read. I’ve sailed in canals and have seen the Parthenon. I’ve ridden on camels and have explored ancient temples. I’ve been aboard a yacht on the French Riviera and have enjoyed many espressos in Paris. Yes, I’ve been everywhere, if only in my head.

But now I’ve reached the point when books and imagination are no longer enough. My feet itches and my heart burns with longing. This butterfly has to fly, so I spread my wings, tentatively at first but becoming bolder each time.

Now I see the world one new place at a time, with each new place further from home than the last. Little by little, I travel.

Little by little, I wander.

Come with me. Wander with me.

  2. why dont you plan to visit dubai, i am sure you will love it

  3. I was tired of my lady, we’d been together too long.
    Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song.
    So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed.
    And in the personals column, there was this letter I read:

    “If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    If you’re not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
    I’m the lady you’ve looked for, write to me, and escape.”

    I didn’t think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean.
    But me and my old lady, had fallen into the same old dull routine.
    So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad.
    And though I’m nobody’s poet, I thought it wasn’t half-bad.

    “Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    I’m not much into health food, I am into champagne.
    I’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape.
    At a bar called O’Malley’s, where we’ll plan our escape.”

    So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place.
    I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face.
    It was my own lovely lady, and she said, “Oh, it’s you.”
    And we laughed for a moment, and I said, “I never knew”..

    “That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne.
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
    You’re the love that I’ve looked for, come with me, and escape.”

    “If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    If you’re not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
    You’re the love that I’ve looked for, come with me, and escape.”

  4. you know why ur wandering?
    may be you wander but time will come you get tired and you will realize that there is not much in the world where you can wander further. for even the shortest distance from your head and heart you cant even filled the gap…
    wander further deep within the distance of your heart.
