Fireside Travel

I've been thinking a great deal lately about my previous travels and travels yet to come. I don't know how I got the travel bug. What about you? Did you ever wonder why two people who come from the same family can have such different ideas about life, love, and certainly about travel? I'm wondering for a few reasons related to my family and upcoming travel, including a planned family trip for my mom's 70th birthday and a trip my husband and I are planning to the French Alps next May/June.

Meanwhile, I'm thinking about influences that may have charted my course...a book, a film, a person who inspired my love of travel, cultures and adventure. I haven't yet put my finger on it. What about you?

Doesn't this photo give you inspiration?

Hi Ellen,
I'm at work and things have slowed down a bit so I thought I'd check your blog! When do you have time to put all that online? Very interesting. Have you read Water for Elephants yet? I think you'll like it. Can't wait to see you at Christmastime!!
More later,
