The Armchair Traveler

When you desire to take a journey but circumstances prohibit you from doing so, what to do? Become an armchair traveler …

  • Immerse yourself in your dream destination (France, Italy, Montana, Nepal…pick a place you have always dreamed of visiting) …
  • Check out your library or book store for photo books, historical non-fiction or fiction set in your dream place …
  • Prepare special dinners (or a party!) with the foods and wines of the area …
  • Learn a foreign language …
  • Listen to music that transports you …
  • Find movies set in your special place …
  • Too many places to narrow it down to just one destination?
    • For ideas, peruse “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” and “1,000 Places to see in the United States and Canada Before You Die” …
    • Each month, pick a different destination to immerse yourself …
      • Find the place where you feel most comfortable …
      • Discover new places …
    • Most important, have fun and be creative as you journey to a favorite spot … even if for now, it is a dream …
