For The Love Of Travel

I love travelling I really do and I really like Heathrow airport as I find the planes flying early exciting , not the getting through security so much I think I have seen one too many programs on them stopping people.And My handbags have a number of time made the machines go haywire but I have never been arrested not that I am doing anything wrong... blimey it sounds like I am incriminating myself here and I am sure Billy Bryson doesn't write like this at all !

Why is travel important I think it’s important as it not only broadens the mind but heart and soul as well and you don’t just have to jump on a plane you can travel in a number of ways.I know a work colleague of my husbands cycles all round Europe with organised cycle travel companies where yes a plane was part of it but you could travel yourself by Ferry etc.I can’t swim so I’m not going to be swimming the English channel unless I have arm bands.

Travellling makes me very excited and it’s the best form of therapy and self care for me, travelling is a kindness and I believe so much in kindness. In a busy world where you are bombarded at every stage with news and information it is refreshing to just be somewhere and explore , I think the information overload crunch came when brushing my teeth through an app ( yes my toothbrush has an app ) it continued to tell me the news.

In this world you have to create your own resilience at times and quietness I find helps me create their resilience and that is why I love travelling.Sunday saw myself and my husband go to Elgar's birth place and it is a utterly charming National Trust property and they have been in charge of it now for around tow years.And in being in charge The Firs has seen visitors numbers rise from around 8,000 to over 30,000 and I think Elgar would have loved this and the joy of music is essential to out wellbeing I believe.
