TRAVEL DIARY | Obsessed With Palm Trees

DSC07515I have an obsession with palm trees! There’s something about these tall and skinny trees with their long and wavy leaves that make me smile from ear to ear. Whenever I see a palm tree I just feel a sense of peace, calm, joy and serenity. Obviously this has a lot to do with the fact that these long legged creations by mother nature grow in warmer climates and we all know how (warm) climates can affect our mood.

Unfortunately palm trees only grow in (sub)tropical climates, and since I live in a cold climate I don’t get to see them every day :(.  So whenever I feel a bit down and moody, I go through my travel archives and look for photos containing beautiful palm trees. :)This makes me feel peaceful and calm immediately as I dream about me sitting underneath a palm tree, with my feet in the sand, staring at the sea, chilling on the beach drinking fresh coconut water!

I could seriously spend the rest of my life living in a tropical climate, selling coconuts and bikinis on the beach with palm trees and the sea as my view. For now my obsession just has to stick with photos of past and future travels to exotic destinations, until the day I will actually live in one where I get to see palm trees every day!
