I miss travel. We all miss travel. Sure, my family went to a couple of vacation rentals last summer. But, I miss other kinds of travel. You know, the kind where you visit new places and explore the wonders of a different area.
But last night, I got an unexpected travel fix that soothed my soul and left me feeling optimistic about future travel. I watched a Facebook Live session with Samantha Brown and Rick Steves (both are travel gurus with their own books and shows).
For over 90 minutes, I feasted my eyes on parts of Switzerland and laughed at the anecdotes shared by the experts. The atmosphere was relaxed and jovial. Comments by the fans were thoughtful, not snarky. Time flew.
After the session, I excitedly told my husband about a town I learned about and how we absolutely must add it to our Switzerland itinerary for 2022. I wondered aloud if we could extend our planned trip for a few more days.
It was so nice to be in the company of other travelers who are optimistic about traveling again. Last night, I felt energized and encouraged that travel will return again soon.
Samantha Brown has Facebook Live sessions every Thursday night. What took me so long to participate? Count me in.
Have you found a way to get your travel fix without traveling during these challenging times?
