Armchair Travelling

Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy recommends that you start indulging in some armchair travelling to keep the spark of adventure alive within your authentic explorer. Start by answering the following questions in your Daily Dialogue:

  • If you could go anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, baby sitter at your disposal, where would you go?
  • Why?
  • Who would you be with?
  • How long would you stay?
  • What would you do?

To inspire your far flung creative visualisation, stop in at the library and peruse the travel shelves. Let your fingers do the wandering. Read about famous women explorers. Collect their exploits and tuck them into your subconscious mind.

Next take a Creative Excursion to a travel agent to collect colourful brochures for your Illustrated Discovery Journal. When asked be non committal about the date of departure. No one needs to know that you’re travelling in your armchair, indulging your imagination on a warm summers night as you consider exploration as a personal metaphor.
