“I haven’t been everywhere; but it’s on my list.” If this thought from writer Susan Sontag rings true for you, chances are you’ve got wanderlust—that unscratchable itch to explore the world. How about those who travel constantly because they hate having their lives, in the words of travel writer Caskie Stinnett, “disrupted by routine”? Also guilty. And if you already knew both of these travel quotes (and can rattle off a few more), you’re definitely an incurable case. Luckily, you’re in good company at BookitLyst; we also firmly believe that “not all who wander are lost” (OK, last one, we swear). So embrace your travelin’ heart, and scroll through for 17 more signs that you have wanderlust.

1. You start every story with “this one time in Marrakesh/Bangkok/Buenos Aires…”

2. All of your romantic fantasies involve a stranger with an accent.

3. You have more travel-sized cosmetics than full-sized ones.
