I have been thinking about travel and what might have been some amazing travel this year. I know there are quite a few residents in the neighborhood with similar plans and disappointments from cancelled plans due to the pandemic.
I read a most interesting story about the Travel column in The New York Times. For years this article has published under the title of “36 Hours in…” In London, Hong Kong, Rome, etc., a full description of what the writer recommended for 36 hours in a particular place.
With the Pandemic upon us all they had to rethink this column (or suspend writing it). The editor decided to turn things on their head and turn to readers for “36 Hours in…Wherever You Are”. To quote the article:
” While we can’t travel for pleasure right now, the spirit of travel — our curiosity, empathy and sense of adventure — can’t be confined. “
The result was an article full of ideas from readers for our time spent at home. HERE is the article for your reading and travel pleasure.
We had planned a trip or two around the area and then at the end of the year a trip to Europe. Since everything is closed and time is being spent at home it is a great time to remember trips of the past and just think about trips for the future.
Where would you like to travel when the time comes to wander again?
Here is me doing a little Italy reminiscing from last October…
I received an email last week from a travel company that had a great video in it. I am sharing it HERE as an encouragement to take a moment, draw in a deep breath and enjoy the scenery.
Enjoy the sunshine and the week ahead!
