NY Times Travel section
So these pages are from a series all done by tearing up a New York Times Travel magazine.
I LONG to travel - right now I don't have the time or money, and mostly I have too many people depending on me here to get away.
I do try once a year or so to do something in another place to refresh my spirit, but as I get older, and money gets tighter (I thought it would be the other way around) I am beginning to know that the vagabonding I dreamed of when I was younger might not happen.
One day, I want to get one of those around the world plane tickets, and with no agenda, just go here and there, stay a week or two in whatever spot appeals to me.
A tropical island, an eastern European city, a farm in Thailand. . . .
I would take pictures, write in my journal, and discover many new things.
For now - I read tons of travel books, and of course, use the internet to connect everywhere I can in the world - couchsurfing is a great place to find cool travel-y minded people.
My biggest fantasy is one day, to have an international art journal meet-up - maybe we all rent a huge farm in the South of France. . . . and just journal together for a week. We could each teach a workshop on a journaling technique that has helped us let loose in our books.
