It can be as simple as contemplating which movie I want to see and then seeing an ad for one that is in the running. Obviously I will go to that one.
I have an idea of a place I want to visit in the Spring. It started off as, "This sounds like a cool city AND it's safe". Then it transitioned to, "Wow, another photo on Pinterest of it....Oh! Someone I follow on Twitter is there...A reader emailed to comment on a post and they LIVE there".
Now I have no doubt that it's where I'll go. Of course, I still manage to make it difficult by over-analyzing soccer schedules (I always try to go to a game when visiting another country) and contemplating dates. It doesn't matter WHEN I go, I know I'll love it. Yet, I need to torture myself a bit.
The wanderlust is starting to poke through again...
