Travel is a journey, not the destination

I found my love of travel when I was 17 and had the opportunity to go on a 15 day educational tour through Europe.  We started in Germany then traveled through Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, and England.  It was such an amazing experience and one that gave me the travel bug. As soon as I graduated high school and started college, my main focus of study was Travel and Tourism, but....life got in the way and I ended up married with a baby on the way.  And since then, I haven't had the chance to really travel the way I have wanted.

I created this canvas as a reminder of my love of travel and to use it as kind of a vision board, to get my mind focused on adventure, travel, experiencing new towns, cities, states and countries.  I so want to start moving, seeking and exploring again....even if I have to start out close to home!

I hope you like my canvas, I really enjoyed making it with all the different media, techniques and images.   The main image is from Saturated Canary and is one of my favorites.
