Wanderlust : a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world.
Since the time of our earliest ancestors, man has displayed an irrepressible impulse to move, to explore new territories and to discover new environments. Our unquenchable thirst for adventure has allowed us to populate the planet and our willingness to travel has helped us to broaden our horizons and enrich our outlooks.
As modes of transportation have become more efficient and more affordable, our collective curiosity has led to an overwhelming desire to push the boundaries of our explorations, visiting increasingly far flung and exotic places.
The concept of wanderlust reflects modern man’s desire to better ourselves by experiencing unknown lands, cultures, behaviours and ways of life. And photography allows us to record and capture these experiences so that we may recount the stories of our travels to those around us.
“Traveling: it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
-Ibn Battuta, a Moroccan explorer of Berber descent, who is widely recognised as one of the greatest travellers of all time.
With this theme we are asking you to tell the story of your travel adventures through the medium of photography. Show us your most inspirational images that will leave us longing to set sail for distant shores.
