Travel Inspiration Roulette

It’s mid-winter and for many of us, that means it’s time for a little inspiration. I’ve been playing with Pinterest which lets you make your own “inspiration boards” and I wondered if I could do something like that here. Here’s how it works: From the gallery below, randomly click any of the thumbnails and you’ll get the full image in a new window. (Or just scroll down to see them all). Collect the ones that you like to create your own inspiration board. Pepper with personal messages. Mix well. Serve warm.

Pouring myself some tea now, preparing to venture outside for a brisk temple tour around Beijing.


  1. At the risk of sounding like a crazy person, this actually just made me cry. A bit homesick today, and I needed this reminder that wherever I am is right where I need to be. And I’m only 23, so I need to keep traveling until the backpack breaks! (The “this is your life” one is my iPhone background, such a good bit of inspiration whenever I click on my phone). Gorgeous collection, thanks for sharing–will be pinning plenty!

  2. Absolutely loved every single one of these. And Christine, I got a little teary-eyed as well. So happy I’ve made the decisions I have to be able to follow my dreams and see amazing and beautiful places and meet incredible like-minded people. 🙂

  3. I love this! This morning I booked a week long trip to Morocco. Although its not for as long as I would like, I can’t wait to visit my third African country :o)

  4. I have a travel words board on pinterest too – love some of these too!!!! FAB!

  6. I just love this! I might have to join Pinterest just to garner more inspiration before I move abroad 🙂

    Just when I thought maybe I should be putting down roots after all this time, you’ve got the itch going again!
