Not sure where you, dear reader, are based, but here on the East Coast, it's dang cold. Unseasonably so. Pair that with the onsalught of Daylight Savings Time—that gloriously outdated standard which now forces our sweet sun to set around 5 p.m.—and we're in serious need of a remedy for our self-diagnosed seasonal affective disorder. To Pinterest!
This week we are feeling beautiful travel photography. At its best, it throws us into another world, totally enraptured. At its worst, we still probably want to go to the place depicted. In an ideal world, a quick jaunt to Egypt or Ireland would be very cheap, quick and easy—in every way imaginable. Unfortunately, international travel is pricey enough to keep us grounded most of the time, not to mention the tug of jobs and other responsibilities. So we say "cheers" to Pinterest for allowing us to be armchair travelers and turn to outstanding (and just-okay) travel photography for a quick little e-escape. Safe travels!
How crazy-cool is this? On our imaginary sight-seeing tour, we reckon we'd stop here first.
Then to Greece
Because tiny Greek villages are oh so picturesque.
But Seriously Greece
Apparently the view of Santorini at dusk is synonymous with "dreamy."
This ideal trip is supposed to be a magical journey away from the chilly reality of winter, but we can still dream of going someplace cold, right?
Put Italy on the Schedule
Did we just stumble into a travel brochure or what?
Ugh, again with the cold—we know. But this scene is so strangely stark and beautiful, we had to include.
And This Garden Too
We can't be sure exactly where this amazing rooftop* garden is, but we know we want to be there.
*Do you call the tops of castles and/or potential ancient ruins "rooftops"?
Coolest Ancient Tree Tunnel
The caption claims that these beauties are about 1000 years old, and based in Wales, which only makes the urge to visit that much greater.
Cats of Paris
It is scientific fact that Parisian cats are the coolest, so we'd definitely pick these hip felines as our City-of-Lights tour guides.
Irish Island Life
Because teeny tiny islands just off the coast of Ireland are just as mind-numbingly beautiful as we'd expect.
