I know, I know, I know—that oh so romantic and oh so commericial holiday of red hearts (aka Valentine’s Day) has passed. That’s fine by me because I believe romance is a 24/7/365 activity. Romance is in songs, words, photos, flowers, sunsets, starry nights, nature, and, of course, travel. Almost any type of travel is romantic. Google defines romance as “a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life” and that is a key ingredient of any vacation, isn’t it?
So, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or any DAY, why not indulge in a little romance?

Dare I propose a ban on all future articles about fall foliage viewing? Yes, I dare and my reasons are simple. Here’s why:
Thanks to Google, we can research articles about fall foliage from previous years
Because trees take years to grow, it’s doubtful any new forests, hillsides, or bluffs have recently sprouted autumnal colors
Magazines include articles about fall foliage entice a reader to buy it (in case they don’t use Google)
You can surely save those dollars and use it for something more meaningful like a venti, sugar-free, non-fat, vanilla soy, double shot, decaf, no foam, extra hot latte with blah, blah, blah
If you don’t want to use Google, you could ask your trusted travel advisor
Therefore: we don’t need any more fall foliage articles.
My finger was hovering over the “Enter” key when an article popped up in my email from AFAR.com, topic of “Where to Experience Fall Colors”. If article were as artfully and creatively curated as this one, I’d vote to lift the ban! Read it and see if you agree. http://www.afar.com/travelers/adriana-yampey/wanderlists/fall
