I have spent the morning working on an amazing travel itinerary. I haven’t totally worked it all out, but there’s some brilliant things on it.
Monday I’m going to Versailles. I’ve always wanted to go there.
Tuesday I’m going to NASA.
Wednesday I’m in London, looking at Buckingham palace, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. Will most likely check out the changing of the
Guard as well.
Thursday I’m off to Rome for an in-depth look at the Colliseum on every level, then the Roman forum if I have time.
Friday I’ll be in the Paris Catacombs!
Saturday I’ll flip over to the US and visit the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and maybe while I’m in the US I might zip over to the San Diego zoo.
Sunday will be a visit to the Vatican museum – Sistine Chapel, St Peters and more.
I’m exhausted already! And the following week’s itinerary is also shaping up nicely with trips to Mexico, Madrid, the Louvre, MoMA, British Museum and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
We have so much travel freedom at the moment, don’t you think? There are a wealth of virtual tours available to everyone, any time, from anywhere in the world – as long as they have access to the internet and a device to show them on!
You don’t have to worry about how much this trip will cost you, whether you can book holidays, accommodation and transport issues, or even whether you can cope with being away from your pets for that long!!!
Sure, you miss out on the crowds – seeing the Mona Lisa through a crowd of 100 people does add to the atmosphere, for sure! Especially if you’re 5 foot 1. (That one inch is important – I’m taller than 5 foot, ok!)
And you miss out on the cuisine that each travel destination would otherwise provide, but you could plan your day to eat something (or drink something 🍷) from each location you’re visiting!
I hope I’ve inspired you to have a Google to see if some of your wish list items have a virtual tour. I’m off for a coffee and some chocolate and a virtual tour of the gorgeous Keukenhoff tulips 🙂
