Some Truth about Travel
Not only does your travel brain have to deal with an onslaught of a thousand new impressions but did you know that the first night in a new bed, your brain is only half asleep (yes, like that of a dolphin) so as to monitor your surroundings in search of potential danger? And then all the terribly delicious looking food during your travels and the misleading thought of city walking = staying super active while travelling.
Well, no wonder travel is a drug. It makes you high on endorphins, challenges you so you grow strong and at the same time it slowly drains you, turning you into a zombie-like state floating from one place to another. Maybe we should all stop dreaming of unicorns and think about the possibility of dolphin zombies instead? Think about it.
And there I go rambling on. Even I go WTF at myself sometimes. And to stay (at least remotely) insane I decided I’d try my hand at monthly roundups now. Let’s see if I keep writing those or not. Of course you decide if you prefer the regular travel tips and disaster stories. But let’s give this a try, shall we? So here it is: my behind the scenes/monthly roundup #1.
My Travel Essentials
My Travel Favourites
Even as I travel the world, I still scroll through my endless pinterest boards and instagram feeds for more. MORE!! (Didn’t I tell you, travel addict?) And this month I am absolutely loving these three insta accounts with their glossy and bright images of tropical places. Europe isn’t exactly tropical and I actually never had a tropical holiday, so it’s still high on my list. (Travel blogging isn’t exactly holidaying. Well, it’s no holiday at all, come to think about it.)
So these have been my July favourites. What has inspired your wanderlust this month? I’d love to know. Let’s share some inspiration!
