Summer always turns my mind to far off places with my wardrobe following right along.
I haven’t been on a boat in years but that doesn’t stop me from rocking nautical stripes.
Or maybe you’re more of a city girl…
And remember that wherever you wander and how far you roam there’s no place like home…
3 Ways to Feed the Travel Bug from Home
1. Usually drive? Get out the bikes or walk your neighborhood. Life is friendlier on foot. People wave at you and call out friendly greetings. Yield to pedestrians is real- and empowering.
2. Create a summer bucket list. One year our family tried a different ice cream shop each week! There are so many places just a hop and a skip away that we’ve never been too. Who says wanderlust has to include an epic journey. This year’s list includes Beech Creek gardens in Alliance, checking out the eagle’s nest at Walborn Reservoir, and tracking down a cannoli from Retz’s Laconi’s II Restaurant in Cuyahoga Falls (A daughter of one of the Ninni’s is co-owner and the craving for their pastry is real).
Northeast Ohio Family Fun is a great site for events but also ongoing activities
3. Read about it. I know it sounds cliche but you really can explore the world through books. Plus curling up with a good read is a great activity for a rainy day. Did you know 21 out of the 30 days in June had rain? Yikes!
