The Wanderer

Made famous by one of the greatest authors to ever live, these are now words that have found new life by the 21st century backpacker revolution. While just fifty years ago, only the rich could afford to really travel and experience the whole world, now with many people working online and through work abroad programs, more people each year are deciding to ditch their homes and desk jobs for the open road. Or, are just taking long vacations where they cross one more country off their to-do list each year. Whatever your inner whimsy desires has been made possible. Whether you are a solo woman traveler, a voluntourist or just dreaming of your future trip, this beautiful design by Spanish artist Encarna Dorado is sure to inspire your imagination.

What do you think of this design?  What images and thoughts does it conjure up in you and how does it help show the world who you are?  Add to the conversation by commenting below.

A bright blue sky and a windswept tree at the edge of a field is a reliable theme. The color of the text is jarring against the background, but seems to be in agreement with the woman- whose bag appears to contain everything a traveler might need to overcome obstacles. The conflict between the setting and the figure is slightly disappointing as she does not seem to take any joy in her travels.

At first I didn’t feel good about this one because the tree in the background looks ominous.
Then I thought about it some more, and now I love it.
She’s walking her own path.
It doesn’t matter what’s in the distance because she has what she needs, and she’s happy on her own.
I also love how her hair is like a more fluid, beautiful version of the stiff, creepy tree.
