Alas, the holiday season is behind us and now it’s back to work/school/life as usual, so to put a spin on the post-holiday blues, let’s explore the routine. First up, laundry day on Lake Atitlan.
Shaking things up a little, how about a dance routine, maybe a secret tango in Seattle.
Last but not least, the routine of earning a living, be it selling roses in Rome…
…rustling up the best street food I’ve ever tasted in New York…
…or carrying a serious load of firewood in Guatemala.
So don’t let the daily grind get you down, turn it into a blog post for this week’s theme instead. If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Routine
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
You have to be displaced from what’s comfortable and routine, and then you get to see things with fresh eyes, with new eyes. – Amy Tan
One travels to run away from routine, that dreadful routine that kills all imagination and all our capacity for enthusiasm. – Ella Maillart
