Travel Memories

As Summer winds down, I cannot help but reflect on my annual Autumn travels throughout Europe. 🙂 The restaurants adorning the cobble stoned breezy alleyways throughout Rome. Where one can enjoy a meal in a shade-cooled setting for hours on end. Lake Cruise on repeat in Switzerland with an unlimited First Class Eurail Pass Tuscany ‘under the sun’ Villages of France My trips are never complete without a visit to any number of bookstores throughout England

Where Do You Miss The Most?

While plugging away at work, perched on a semi-comfortable office chair in my remote work space at home, my mind occasionally wanders off to very specific corners of the world where I suppose my subconscious wants to be instead… Dean Village – Edinburgh, Scotland. I stumbled upon this timeless spot a mile or so from the bustling downtown area of Edinburgh. I thought I was dreaming…it was so beautifully preserved. Bougainvillea adorned white washed pathways on Santorini Island, Greece A stroll along the French Riviera This… Switzerland… all of it I can spend days walking across the greenest of pastures I’ve ever seen Where do you miss the most?

Sidewalk Cafe Scene

Do you miss it? Or have you been able to hang out in your favorite cafe for a while now? I suppose that depends on which part of the world you pin yourself. Then again, I suppose restaurants offering outdoor meal seating has sort of been the new cafe scene here in the states. I just hope they don’t get rid of them once it is very safe, or safer than today, to eat indoors. But I do miss it – sidewalk cafes in Paris, Rome, and other small towns and villages around the globe with mismatched tables and chairs, colorful uniformity and all variations of a place where you can simply sit and soak up the day while people watching. What is your favorite outdoor cafe scene?

Travel: Places to Imagine

Slowly and more and more I am seeing friends and acquaintances on social media post images of their travels – naturally after being vaccinated. Which of course has me feeling a mixed of emotions. Are we truly ready to travel? Is safety truly a priority – or will remain a priority around the world since vaccination? How do I maneuver my own city with more and more tourists flocking to San Francisco, mostly without masks? Are they vaccinated, asymptomatic, or… Always the or? Funny I saw a commercial on television the other day and thought, why do we doubt so much? And should we just live and breathe and simply hope for the best? What will it all look like in the coming months? One thing I know for sure, social media is gearing us up to think about travel. What are you thoughts about travel? Too soon? Not soon enough? Or ready for in moderation? {article inspiration source and full credit}

Simply Missing Travel

Normally at the start of every year, I dot my travel plans on the calendar, which always includes a trip to Europe. Somewhere new and somewhere I’ve been before combined together to create an itinerary, usually for the fall. This year, still with all the uncertainties, I have been privately thinking about a trip across the country, in an RV, and exploring some of these recommendations, which apparently are reminders of Europe. Do you know anywhere else in the US that is a reminder of a country in Europe? I’d love to hear about it. {Source and full credit}

Travel Is A Great Distraction

As we settle into the idea of 2021 simply being an extension of 2020 – in terms of careful consideration of how to manage through the pandemic: work, school, travel, and socializing – I realize that I need to bring back the travel series. Which I limited it on 2020 considering. So today, I want to share scenic mountain ranges in the U.S. worth exploring. I mean since we are drawn to the outdoors now more than ever, this list should keep us hopeful in planning some amazing road trips this year. {Article and featured image full credit}

Getaway For The Holidays

My all-time favorite holiday film, is The Holiday, where two women exchange homes during the holidays, in hopes of getting away from their otherwise mundane or meaningless lifestyle – only to discover love in all the right places. So today, just for fun, I am wondering, which getaway would you choose, if you had the change to exchange or actually simply find the perfect holiday escape…
