What is armchair traveling and why is it beneficial for 'Creatives'?
What - Armchair traveling is exactly what it sounds like. It's experiencing the sights, sounds, smells, and thrills of traveling while remaining in your comfortable spot at home. Due to age, health, circumstance, or financial considerations, not all of us are privileged to travel as much as we'd like. However, that doesn't mean we can't rack up miles while reclining in our favorite chair with a cup of coffee and hot cinnamon rolls while we browse a book, travel magazine, website, travel channel, etc. Why - Creatives need constant inspiration, new ideas, and breaking away from the ordinary to capture something illusive that takes root and grows in their imagination, eventually emerging as a design, craft, or work-of-art that is uniquely their own.
And because I think this key is so very important, I'm going to start a new series of posts that will take us to different armchair traveling destinations. In those posts, I'll be sharing images for visual inspiration, a few interesting location facts, and also some practical design suggestions. So stay close and don't miss the adventure.
