Traveling From Your Armchair


I don’t know about you, but I love to travel. I have an entire list of places that I know that I want to visit someday. Australia. Paris. New Zealand. Germany. So many places to visit. However, there are certain things seem to like to get in the way of getting the chance to go to some of those delightful places: time and money, to name just a couple.

MountainOne of my favorite ways to handle this is to do some “armchair traveling.”  When I choose to “armchair travel”, it allows me to visit some of these places from the comfort of my own living room. One of the easiest ways to do this is by utilizing your library’s DVD collection in the Travel Neighborhood. These DVDs can allow you to travel to Rome, Paris, California, New York, and anywhere else that you would like to visit. Many of these DVDs can take you to some of the world’s most beautiful locations. They can take you to the top of the mountains in the Alps or to explore all the amazing marine life that is at the bottom of the oceans.

If you are interested, check out your library’s catalog. Let your armchair travels begin! Where would you like to armchair travel to?
