I always daydream of travel much more on Mondays.
I guess it’s really just a version of escapism. The freedom of the weekend is well and truly gone and the reality of work and busy schedule of week ahead makes me want to run to a place far far away. Even though I enjoy my job and I love working for my little business my love for travel often takes over. On Mondays I dream about running away to a place where I can eat exotic foods and wander streets and alleyways aimlessly for hours…
Yes, I’d like to sit, eat and soak in the surroundings of sweet little cafes;
Discover old, pretty, colourful tiled floors and walls covered in bougainvillea;
Spot cats sun-baking on the front steps of beautiful homes with colourful doors;
Pick wild flowers from fields covered in a blanket of colourful blooms;
Dip my toes in all the oceans of the world;
Wander through exotic fabric shops and design outfits in my mind;
Sit and drink cocktails while watching boats sailing in the sunset;
Peruse supermarket aisles and examine the different ingredients;
Hide away in peaceful botanical gardens in the centre of major cities;
Buy local produce from farmers markets and enjoy spontaneous picnics;
Stroll through antique shops and wonder about the stories each piece would tell;
Climb mountains (ok maybe just hills) and admire the view from the top;
Embrace different cultures and attempt to pronounce words in foreign languages;
Go in search of amazing architecture;
Bush walk and discover natural beauties;
Learn how to prepare and cook local, traditional delicacies;
Bike ride aimlessly through new streets lined with lush trees.
These are the things I daydream about each Monday…
But… work is waiting, business is bustling and the week has only just begun!
Hope you have a good one x
