Up here in the northern hemisphere the nights are closing in and there’s a slight chill to the air. I usually spend a large part of my travel days on the go, exploring new places, but on days like these, cosy coffee shops like Rome‘s Caffè Greco start to look inviting.
Also around this time of year, the smell of roasted chestnuts starts to waft through city streets, inviting you to follow your nose and purchase a bag of sweet floury treats.
The melodic sound of harp strings being played on a bustling Dublin street invites passers by to take a few moments out of their busy lives and relax.
On a sweltering hot summer’s day along California’s Lost Coast, the ocean almost calls your name, inviting you to jump headfirst into the cool, clear surf.

Autumn in New York; why does it seem so inviting? – Vernon Duke
When you’re writing, you’re conjuring. It’s a ritual and you need to be brave and respectful and sometimes get out of the way of whatever it is that you’re inviting into the room. – Tom Waits
