Wanderlust In My Blood

IMG_7555

“I became a tramp – well, because of the life that was in me, of the wanderlust in my blood that would not let me rest… I went on ‘The Road’ because I couldn’t keep away from it; because I hadn’t the price of the railroad fare in my jeans; because I was so made that I couldn’t work all my life on ‘one same shift’; because – well, just because it was easier to than not to…

The Road had gripped me and would not let me go; and later, when I had voyaged to sea and done one thing and another, I returned to The Road to make longer flights, to be a ‘comet’ and a profesh, and to plump into the bath of sociology that wet me to the skin.”

— Jack London, The Road
