Reading is an adventure
that never ends
– Charles Shulz
One of the best ways for us to travel is with our own imagination. It may sound cliche but Charles Shulz was onto something magical, reading is an adventure! Think of the writers who brought you books that you will read over and over again, are you transported to a new place? Can you imagine the taste, smells or emotions that characters was feeling? That’s the power of reading!
I remember getting those Scholastic book fair catalogs in elementary school, rushing home and circling all the books I was hoping to get. Finally the day had come, I would walk into the school Library with the money I begged my mom for and pick my new adventure. “Magic Tree House” and “The Boxcar Children” were among my favorites, wondering where the next journey would take us. I still get excited anytime I walk into a library or book store, a library card is a mini passport waiting for stamps. What would be in your “reading passport”? Maybe Middle Earth or the Forbidden Forest?
So let’s celebrate reading and continue the adventure by simply opening a book. Comment below with your favorite reads.
I love the holidays and I love giving gifts, but it can also be stressful, especially if you have a tight budget or the person has “particular taste”. So that’s where I come in! I’ve created a travel holiday gift guide to help you master the holiday season versus staying hidden in a dungeon.
One of the best ways to inspire you to travel or go on an adventure is watching flicks where they go to amazing destinations. So here is my ongoing list of travel movies I recommend, be sure to add your favorites in the comments below!
Alex Winter & Keanu Reeves play a couple of high school buddies wanting to start a band but risk the failure of their history class which means Ted would be sent to Military school. I mean, adventure is in the name. This movie gives you a history lesson and great quotes.
I love Jon Favreau! I swear the DMV instructor who tested me when I was 16 is his body double. Anyways….this is about Chef Carl (Favreau) and his passion for food. With the help of his best friend and son they fix up a food truck and travel across the country delivering cubanos.
