travelling is good for the soul (a guest post by jess)

travelling is good for the soul. tremendously good.
having coffee in a new cafe, getting lost, seeing new faces, reading maps, eating sandwiches on the steps of an old building, walking, and just generally journeying.

I've done quite a bit of travelling in my life, even though I really feel as though I haven't. I always say to my dad, "dad, I want to see the world!" and he replies, "you have seen the world, jess.".
then I pout. and look at pictures of paris. because I haven't been to paris yet, dad.

but! even if it's only to another town or village or city in your state/country, it is still travelling. save up and take the train or bus to somewhere new and spend a day with some friends just messing around in a different and exciting place.
to satisfy my love for journeying, I have recently been to london to meet up with jenn (a blogger friend) and soon I'm going on a relaxing holiday to yorkshire.

do you have any travelling plans for this summer? tell me!
