"Travel Fever".

I do not know if this term exists in the English language, but it definitely exists in my native tongue. "Travel Fever" describes that fluttering, thrilling feeling in the pit of the stomach, often linked with excitement and expectations of an imminent journey. It usually occurs a few days prior to the beginning of the travel and intensifies in strength, until it culminates at the time of departure.
I am currently suffering from this pleasant condition and nothing around me seems the same. Tomorrow is the big packing day followed by boarding a train, or several trains and meeting up with the handsome Irishman, to spend wonderful days in one of the most beautiful cities in the heart of Europe.

This means that today is my last post for the next twenty days. I am going to miss you all and I hope you will not forget me while I am gone.

But before I leave you, here is the traditional weekly update on my lavish clematis. Perhaps the next time I post a picture, there might be some flowers. Considering it will survive my absence, that is.

Have wonderful June my friends and as Arnold would say; "I'll be back".

I wonder if your 'fever' has as much to do with the actual TRIP as it has to do with your traveling PARTNER ;).

Have a WONDERFUL time, my friend!! Travel safely! We'll miss you but, OF COURSE, we'll be here when you get back!!! XOXO

In English, there is the term, "wanderlust"--but I don't know it means quite the same thing(I know it as Reisefeber in German) and it IS a wonderful feeling and I like how you described it EXACTLY!
*sigh*
Now I am getting Travel "Fever", myself, but no where to go....
I'll miss your daily blogs but am happy for you--knowing that you'll be living a kind of dream while you are away. :-)

yeah if there's such a term as that them am guilty too.

but every after travel am feeling depressed. Is that normal? I feel like not doing anything. Maybe am just missing those beautiful places right?

That is sooooooooo exciting. I am soo pleased for you that you get to travel with your Irish-man and enjoy romantic Europe. Be safe and Have a dreamy time!!!

Wow! I wish you a safe and fun trip. I am getting ready for our vacation too! We are leaving on Monday.

I know your on your trip now and this comment is a little late, but I had no internet for a few days. It's back up and I am trying to catch up before I go on vacation.

xoxo, Shelly

Hey, the travel fever- I know it very well :)
Když mám já cestovní horečku,tak pár dní dopředu se na odjezd hrozně těším, ale ten den, kdy mám odjet, tak se mi vůbec nechce. Nevím, čím to je :D
A kam konkrétně vlastně jedeš? když říkáš srdce Evropy- myslíš ČR?

Hope you don´t mind I write half on czech and half in english. :)

Ok, bye,

tereza
