Before 2020, travel seemed so easy. I think I took it for granted. Ben and I were away for a few weeks when he had an assignment overseas (I came back a week ago, Ben is due back today). I was allowed to go because the project was longer than a month. Let me tell you travel is not what it used to be. There was very little enjoyment factor in the travelling.
I did enjoy being somewhere a bit different though. We are based in England currently. I would be so bored of staying in one country always. Travel is awesome. It opens your mind to a colourful diverse world of fascinating cultures and people. Everyone should travel. Like seriously, if you have not travelled to lands with less developed economies, you won’t really understand the world we live in.
Ben loves travel. He traveled extensively during his gap year. He also loves visiting both Ireland and Greece where he has relatives. He has grown up in the States, but Ben is fascinated by Europe.
Ben and I do actually have a world map, in a frame. We used to have a map on the wall that we put drawing pins in all the lands that we had been to. Ben’s drawing pins were blue, mine were red. There was a lot more blue on that map than there was red! (We had to buy lots of multi-coloured drawing pins and we ended up with a lot of yellow, green and pink drawing pins that we had no use for.) Anyway…at some point it started to look tatty, so we bought a new map and put it into a frame. It is still a focal point in our home.
There is a huge allure to travel. I think there are some English people who only think of travel as far as sun, sand, sangria. They expect to be able to go abroad and eat fish and chips and have a full English breakfast. But others are hungry to taste the culture, explore the history and architecture in other lands, and experience food, music, clothing and pastimes of the land they are visiting.
Many have traveled in search for adventure, or to find purpose and meaning, or even with a noble motive of their own. Some simply want to escape their grey mundane life and be in a location where they can relax, rejuvenate, recover.
Then there are the tourists who travel to far flung lands for sex. I don’t have a lot to say on the subject (having freaked out because of some nutso hotel staff who got over-friendly on my last package holiday). But I did include sex tourists in the second of our erotic novellas.
When we wrote our two-part erotic novella series, there was a natural point to divide Leah’s story. She is so fed up at the end of Book One “LOST“, that she decides she needs an escape. So in Book Two, “FOUND“, Leah goes travelling. Along her way she meets Simon.
I have already published a lot of posts discussing the real Simon. That should give you an idea of how exciting and spicy Leah’s story becomes. Simon is unlike any other lover. Packed with illicit explicit content, “FOUND” takes Leah on a journey around the world map in which she finds love, romance and great sex!
