Arm Chair Travel

Dear Fellow Journalers,

“We travel not to escape life, but for life to escape us.”  unknown

Arm Chair traveling is basically transporting ourselves to a destination without leaving our office, kitchen or chair in front of the fire. There are many ways to discover say London, and the many ways are movies, books, pictures, audio-books. There are other ways too.

How many of you travel up a mountain slope in Switzerland or ride a train into a forest while biking on a treadmill? Books that bring out the local culture can transport us to distant lands. Richard Paul Evans, Debbie Macomber and Kristin Hannah have a way of drawing you into the surroundings of their characters. Two books that I read recently transported me not only to the place but to the time period as well.

I saw the movie “Conagher” and wanted to read the book by Louis L’Amour. The book brought me to places I’d only seen on TV westerns. The second book is “Magic Hour” by Kristin Hannah. I’ve been to forests before but never to the State of Washington’s Olympic National Forest.

One of the best ways to use your imagination is to engage another of your 5 senses – taste. I usually order the same thing in an Italian restaurant in my town but I tried something different awhile ago and was transported to a tiny fishing village where I ate and drank to my heart’s content.

The perfect ending to a perfect day of arm-chair traveling.
