Since my English travel plans have been delayed until September, I have been living vicariously through my fellow Instagrammer’s luscious images. The next best thing to being there! And if I’m enjoying them then I’m certainly thinking there’s a good possibility you will, too! For starters, the dreamy image above that’s inspiring me to consider some tweaks to Parterre’s gardens.
If you haven’t succumbed to the World of Instagram you might decide to reconsider…the wealth of talented photographers (most of them non-professional) out and about is awe-inspiring. That one simple app can open your eyes to visions you could not have imagined.
Especially in these times when the wanderlust bug is affecting us all. There’s nothing quite like recalling travel memories from the past — the smell, the tastes, the different language, the people’s gestures, the funny incidents along the way — unless it’s a ticket in hand!
Places to dream about, to be enchanted by, to be fascinated with…all part of the lure of “foreign destinations.” Second to gathering with friends, I truly think the experience that we’ve all missed the most through this past challenging year is that of travel.
So as you scroll through these yummy images, give mind space to that exhilarating question…what are your travel dreams?
Then, as a current American Airlines ad reminds us, “Pack your bags! You’ve got places to go.”
