    Default The sea...

    There is no place like the coastal landscapes or at sea, in my opinion. I've always felt a longing for the sea, and wherever I am I won't feel at home if i'm not anywhere near it. Don't get me wrong, I like mountainous highland landscapes, too... But there is no place like by the shores or on a ship. I've always been driven by wanderlust and the sea have always been what has been in my mind the most. Any kind of raft, boat or ship will make me into a giggling little boy. If I get my hand out of my arse in the future and have a sufficient amount of money to spend the rest of my days on a sailing boat around the world, I will.

    And I wonder if it's not genetic, since my family have been moving around a lot over the last few centuries... And despite differences in character, me, my father and my grandfather have the same dreams of far off distant lands. Could wanderlust be in the genes?

    Or maybe it has something to do with type? Or am I just weird?
    My father, grandfather and me are all NT's.

    Most definitely. I've always lived on a coast, whether it be the Pacific, Gulf or Atlantic. I plan to always stay on a coast. I often kind of wish I'd been an explorer and sailed the seas back when every thing was a total mystery and exciting. When the possibility of multiple headed dragons living under the water was a very real possibility (as far as people knew). Modern life sucks.

    Agree with all of this.

    I love being on the coast or out on the water.

    I sort've do feel a pull towards the sea when I'm on my way there, but when I'm there, it's kind've meh. I feel a much stronger pull towards the mountains.

    Yup. My two favorite locations are: mountains (especially snow-covered ones), followed by the beach/ocean.

    Yes. I always thought it was because I'm a water sign.

    Nope. I live in Illinois and I've only seen the ocean once. I never think about it.
