Reading giving me itchy feet. It inspires me to travel to destinations that have until now only existed within pages of a book.
When I was about eight years old I didn’t read. I didn’t like it – I thought it was boring.
I was then introduced to my first thriller/mystery and I was hooked. I forgot about anything or anyone around me. Nothing much has changed in the ensuing years.
These days I read on my kindle which is on my phone. I still love a paper book, but I also love the ease of reading an e-book. It is easy to hold and more importantly with me wherever I go.
I am delighted to be back bringing you a Wednesday quotation. And this one from my favourite childhood author Dr Seuss really inspires me and tells a story of where I am in my life right now.
The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go.
I read every day. Sometimes I forget things because I am absorbed in the story that transports me to places in my imagination. I read fiction, I read travel books, I read inspiration and I read personal development and self-improvement books. When I get a chance I still read childrens books too.
No matter what you read when you crack open the pages, virtual or not, you are learning. You are learning about people and you are learning about places.
I am so excited to be travelling to Tenerife for some sun very soon. There are lots of trips planned for this year and the next. My wish list that gets added to regularly, and sometimes directly in correlation with something I have read.
Travel does cost money and so many of my dream destinations will remain dreams for a while, but at least I can read, and research and allow my imagination to soar.
Thank you so much for reading
