Today I threw open the door of one of my country cupboards for this photo op. This one houses some of my colorful and fun pieces, ranging from the Jamestown Fostoria crystal to the vintage tumblers and the “Cornflakes” mugs and dishes. In other words, a “potpourri” of collections.
Since I am home, nesting, while others in the family are gallivanting around, in Europe, etc., I have to find ways to cheer up my day.
But I do love the photos which have been appearing regularly via text from my son Brett, who started out in Spain, then went to Ibiza…and finally Prague. Now he has branched out to Budapest. But first…
He stayed in The Jim Morrison suite at this hotel in Ibiza…
After arriving in Prague, Brett and his daughter Aubrey, who will be attending a college semester in Prague, had dinner with my eldest son Craig, his wife Gabi, and Aubrey’s roommate.
A view from the hotel in Budapest…
This morning I got this photo of the thermal baths in Budapest.
My vicarious travels are fun. Right? I don’t have to pack, unpack, or fly. Am I kidding myself, though?
Do you love to travel, or would you rather nest at home, reading books about travel. I am currently reading Happy People Read and Drink Coffee, a story about a widow who moves from Paris, where she owns a bookstore/cafe, to Ireland. She hopes to escape the pain of the past.
Vicarious traveling through reading and movies reminds me of the Anne Tyler book, The Accidental Tourist. I also have the movie with William Hurt, Kathleen Turner, and Geena Davis.
Enjoy your travels…vicarious or actual.
