Perhaps it’s the fact that I’m not really able to travel much this summer due to my pending arrival or just the excitement of packing a bag to head off to an unknown destination but I really want to go somewhere. Tops on my list right now is Montreal. It’s far enough to be a trip but close enough that the travel won’t be too taxing. It’s also part European feel plus part urban, hip metropolis. Love it! The extra bonus is that hubby and I got engaged there twelve years ago Labour Day weekend so it always has special memories for us.
I love these shots by Annie Leibovitz. They’re so moody and dramatic and really show how sophisticated travel used to be. I love the idea of packing a train case and hopping aboard while sipping a cocktail (non-alcoholic of course!)
Not so sure about the entourage carrying my luggage but a girl can dream right?
