La Vie Bohème

22.7.10

I want to go on a carefree adventure to wherever the wind blows
While listening to the sounds coming off of Jimi Hendrix electric guitar
And learning about progressive ideals from the Beatles
Perhaps I'll be so lucky as to find a lovely cabin to settle in
Or maybe I'll make my own temporary haven
  In any event, I want to be dressed a little something like this


If it's winter, I'd rather go with this

*EARTH TO ABI!*  

Maybe I'll just stay in Toronto and get lost in my thoughts; or delve into the pages of the book La Vie de  Bohème by Henry Murger. A novel set in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s that gives us a good idea of the blatant disregard Bohemians had for fashion and high culture. 

If you had the opportunity, what/where would your ideal travel adventure be? What music would you listen to, and what do you see yourself wearing?

Hope you're all having a great!

Bisous,
Abs

I really want to go to Peru and Vietnam, and I would like to think I'd be as glamourous as those girls in the first picture!

It's always lovely to look at travel-inspired things! Sometimes even better than going... no mosquitos for example!

Emily said...

Oh, just noticed that hilarious little picture of the lady in the woods with all the pictures hanging from the trees! That looks like an adventure after my own heart too!

I always imagine myself on a sailboat and just going for it. Nothing but a bikini and oversize shirts. :)

Great photos. Summer inspirations for sure.

I would just about go anywhere in the world right now! I am so hungry for travel. I do hope to go to Thailand first though and I would listen to whatever was playing locally.

@Mia- pooey. maybe try one item at a time and see if that works out?

@Simone: yes, freedom is definitely important

@Emily: hahaha! Yes. You're too cute. No mosquitos would definitely be nice. I would love to go to Peru as well. I've got a never ending list of travel destinations.

@rk hall: a sailboat would definitely be an adventure! I have a little fear of being 'lost at sea' though...

@Anthea: Thailand is apparently a beautiful place. I would love to visit too.
