Travel theme: Dazzling

Travel theme: Books

It will probably come as no surprise to you that I am a proud, (library) card-carrying bookworm;  I adore the written word.

Travel theme: Sensory

Good travel engages all of the senses, combining to create a heady and unforgettable experience.

Yikes, I got busy and was very nearly late getting my weekly travel theme up in time, so the theme this week sort of picked itself. 224 more words
