I sure do, and I’m betting you do, too. And I’m also guessing you remember some of your former travel adventures quite fondly, especially when you pull out those memory-invoking travel photos snapped while positioned in just the right spot in front of well, name your spot.
Like this one:
Or this one:
Well good news people because despite the current world situation that has found most of us temporarily and most likely unwillingly housebound, #travelawaits!
In fact, I say let’s start to revisit travel right now by pulling out those photo albums and challenge yourself to remember the sights and sounds and unique memories you made while snapping those pix. To get you started on this journey, read on and travel with me as I share a few more fun photos from places that told me stories as I ventured out and explored life in foreign places.
So, remember that oft repeated phrase from your travel days of not so distant past, “Ladies and Gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts as we prepare for takeoff”? Well let’s do that right now altogether, and on this trip, I promise no turbulence ahead.
And here’s a fun photo taken while husband and I were exploring Sicily. We took a tour that was actually called, “In the footsteps of the Godfather.” Not kidding! Who would have thought that in the very place were the Mafia supposedly originated, the current Italian population would be able to profit from and poke a little fun at that questionable bit of their own personal history?
Here’s an aerial view of a toboggan run that I rode on in Labadee, Haiti. Why, you ask? I guess, um, just because?
Continuing with my outdoor activity theme, here’s a telling shot of me right before I started out on a mountain bike excursion in Croatia. It was definitely a trip to remember, and you can read more about it here.
Moving back inside to more civil activities, here’s a great one from an exceptional Chef’s Table event we attended while on board the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas. And PS – if you’ve never signed up for a Chef’s Table event you are missing one of the best nights of any cruise. Witness the amount of wine glasses below.
Next up take a look at this adorable guy, a pix I snapped while touring around in Sydney, Australia in 2019. Do you see what I see?
Finally, I’m closing with one of my all time favorite trip photos. I mean, what’s not to love about spending an afternoon on a sailboat? Oh and, this sailboat happened to be from an actual America’s Cup Regatta.
So, I hope you enjoyed that little photo travel trip of memories from my many years of journeying. And just think, you went with me from Paris to China to Australia and Mexico with stops in Italy, Haiti and Croatia. Just by reading this blog. I’m a firm believer that in order to travel ‘there’ – wherever that is for you – it begins ‘right here’ in your own thoughts, dreams, and imagination.
I also believe that #travelwillcomeback, so let’s stabilize this aircraft and move on!

I hope you’re doing ok. These are some great reminders of why we travel–the people, the experiences, the memories. I can’t wait to get moving again and to try launching my women’s tour company again. Perhaps I’ll see you on the road. Take care of yourself.
Thanks so much, Carole, and great to hear from you again! I am doing fine but like so many others itching to get back on the road again as I know you are, too. Here’s hoping you remain healthy [wherever you currently are] and sane while we weather the storm, and I’m confident there will be brighter travel days ahead for all of us!
