CATCHING THE TRAVEL BUG


I really miss traveling. I'm always dreaming about all the different places I want to visit and experience someday, but recently I've been itching even more to actually GO to these places. It's been too long since my last overseas adventure. The people I meet. The views and hidden gems I discover. The excitement of everything being new all around me. It's a liberating feeling being a stranger in a place. It's like being a kid again. Above is a look back at one of my last big traveling adventures . . . to Bali, Indonesia. February 2010. Man, I miss those everlasting sunsets, that sticky and humid air, the vibrant colors all around me, and the smiles that greeted me around every corner. I still haven't been to Europe yet, and I think that a trip to London HAS to happen this upcoming fall. Or at least Paris. Or Amsterdam. Or maybe I can fit in all three in a week? How about that?? Come on airplane. Swoop me up and take my someplace dreamy.

I'm going to India soon and the knowledge that soon I am soon going overseas to a completely culturally different country for four months has made me content with all my decisions this year. It's as if, as long as I'm travelling soon, I'm getting it right.

Great pictures.
Your future vacation plans sound amazing.
I wish it wasn't so expensive to just hop on a plane
and go - I would do it tomorrow if it wasn't.

I have the travel bug lately too... I can't stop scavenging through picture of far off places on Pinterest wishing I could go there.

As for your potential fall Europe trip-- it sounds awesome. I'd suggest going to my favorite city-- Berlin (particularly the Prenzlauerberg & Kreuzberg neighborhoods).

Travelling is the Best!!! Love your photos :)

You can perfectly fit in London, Paris and Amsterdam in 3 weeks — no problem at all! A week is actually quite long to visit Amsterdam, you should take the train to Antwerp too when you're around!

I love travelling too so I hope you can book yourself a ticket to discover new places very soon! :)

I relate so well to this post...love travelling and seeing different places! You must get yourself to London in the summer/fall, if you come in the winter make sure you bring your warmest style darling
