You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much here on the Wanderlust page recently. I was really hoping to have been traveling to far-away places by now.

Except for adventures closer to home, I haven’t taken any big trips since Covid, and my hubby and I are still being cautious.

But I’m getting antsy, especially about returning to Paris. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world. I love just about everything about it. The endless beauty, the art, the shopping, people watching at sidewalk cafes, Rose’ on ice, the slower pace and appreciation for the moment, the good manners and classy fashion, and incredible walkability. With beauty everywhere you look.

I could go on and on. It is that great a city. It’s one of those places that when I’m there, I feel like I’m home. It checks so many of my creative boxes. Fuels them, too.

I feel fortunate to have traveled to Paris twice, once for a writing retreat located on the Seine, an experience I will never forget. The other time was to celebrate my birthday with my husband, which we did by having dinner on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Another magical experience, complete with a full moon.

For trip number three, I am hoping that my husband and I can return to the City of Light sometime next Spring. I think we will be both feel better then about where the world is with regards to viruses and other world ills that can often impact safe travel. I want to visit more of those places we missed on trips one and two. It is impossible to see all of Paris in one trip. We will just have to keep going back.

Like eating again and again at the best food buffet.

My future travel French wanderlust fingers are tightly crossed for freedom soon. Until then, my numerous past Paris photos, including this one where I am standing outside the Paris Zara store trying to look like a local, and one posing at Jardin du Palais Royal, will have to suffice.

Which means more local/U.S. adventures and armchair travel with online videos will have to suffice for now. Thank goodness for the Internet and life in a beautiful state.

Travel Ooh la la.

Are you itching to take a big post-Covid trip soon, too? What’s on your wanderlust list?
