Time for a trip

It is past time for a trip. The last holiday I was on was in September, when we went to Washington and Oregon and enjoyed a week visiting Portland and Seattle, touring the Willamette Valley wine region and lounging seaside. That seems like a million years ago, especially as I watch friends and family heading to sunny climes for a break from winter and the routines of daily life. Hawaii, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, California…they all sound wonderful right now. The spring flowers are here, but it is still chilly and I am restless and ready for a change of scene.

I can’t complain too much; we will be on Vancouver Island in a couple of weeks and after that we’ll spend most of May in Italy and France, so I know my time for travel is coming. But it doesn’t stop me from feeling ready now!

Until then, here is a smattering of arm-chair travel photos in case you’re shivering along with me these days and longing for escape.
