“Where Are Your Travel Posts?”

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

Still inside my head!

I’m never going to stop posting about travel in addition to reading and writing, so have no fear. Travel is important to me because I love it, because it enriches life, and because I think it helps humans develop empathy. (Think about how much ignorance would be stamped out in the US alone if people traveled more!)

But at this point in life I can’t travel extensively, because day job, and because writing career. I do want to write more travel essays, because travel provides experiences that just keep on giving to my story-making side — but lately, I haven’t had time.

For those of you who come here for more travel — I will make time soon.

For now, enjoy this lovely shot of the Chateau de Langeais, which I visited nearly one year ago as part of one of my favorite vacations ever.

Just a quick note to say I’ve started a new job this week and I’m a bit busy, to say the least. This weekend I need to figure out a way to have time to work, and write, and blog, and sleep. (If anyone has any tips, please let me know.)

And it’s Wanderlusty Wednesday, so I have to leave you with something! So if you’re contemplating a trip, here are some suggestions…

If you want to head south…

If you want to head further south…

If you want something Mediterranean…

Or you’re looking for a different kind of beach…

If you’re in the mood for some castles…

Or a different kind of castles…

If you’re looking for some fascinating history…

Or you just want to stop and smell the flowers…

If you’re looking for a real-life literary location…

Or just want to hang out where the writers once did…

Be sure to check out all my travel posts here!

The reason people like to travel in warm weather is obvious. But I don’t always like to do this, and here’s why…
