A major perk about being a freelance writer is I've had the opportunity to travel around the world. I've been able to experience cultures and see iconic landmarks I didn't think I would get to see until much later in my lifetime — and for that I'm eternally grateful. While constantly jet-setting to different countries can be exhausting — long hours on planes, in airports, and unpacking and repacking my suitcases — the thrill of adventuring is one I'll never get tired of. So I've compiled this list of Instagram captions for life on the road that perfectly describe how traveling makes me feel.
I don't quite live the digital nomad life — I still have a home base in Los Angeles — but I'm pretty darn close. I'm on a plane at least every other week, and it isn't abnormal for me to visit four or more different countries in a month. While my lifestyle definitely isn't the easiest, I'm beyond ecstatic that my job allows me to have these experiences. I feel so fortunate to be able to see the world and explore beyond the confines of my hometown. Though there's plenty to see in LA, the rest of the globe keeps calling my name.
Whether you're a digital nomad, frequent jet-setter, or someone who takes an occasional vacation, these captions are perfect for all of your wanderlust-y Instagram posts.
