Armchair Travel

April 19, 2010

As you may have noticed, I put this blog on hiatus last week. A lot has been going on lately and I decided I didn’t need blogging on top of everything else. That said, I don’t want to stop blogging. I am just not going to try to force it if I’m not in the mood. So there may not be new posts everyday, but I will still update.

I love to travel. It is something that I want to do a lot more. Spending 5 weeks in the UK two years ago only whetted my appetite.

Recently I have discovered the joys of armchair travel. While no substitute for the real thing, it is a good alternative if you’re not quite in a position to travel the world yet. It is also a good use of time because reading travel guides and exploring websites can teach you about different places and give you an idea of where you want to go and what you want to do there. Not too long ago I read an excellent travel guide to Rome and I followed it up by visiting websites for places the guide mentioned. Now I have some idea of what it will take for me to visit Rome and what I want to do while I’m there. When I do reach a point when I can travel there, half the planning is already done.
