travel

I'm Oz

I just wrote this as a reply to a post by whochick and realised that I summed up a lot of my thoughts regarding travel, identity and where I belong.

*******************

I love travelling, but my urge to go overseas is always overwhelmed by how much of Australia I haven't seen yet, and all of it is a place I feel connected to. I want to see places overseas, but I should see more of what is here.

Travelling the other night I got fresh scents from places I hadn't been, listened to birds I'd never heard... all of it was new, delighted me, and felt so very right to who I am and where I should be.

Oz was very much the right choice of name for me.
