Cappuccinos and Castles: 6 Photos That Will Jolt Your Wanderlust

By Cristina Cianci

Trains, planes, and automobiles!

I live for going to new places or familiar ones that hold a special place in my heart. One thing you can bet on, come 5 p.m. Friday you can find me on one of the just mentioned means of transport.

A few of my recent favorites places are:

Lake Como, Italy

Alps, aqua-colored lakes, castles, and of course, all the cappuccinos your heart desires.

Wildwood Crest, N.J.

This beach town, especially at night, looks like you're living in β€œThe Jetsons.”

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.

New York City

For all the obvious reasons.

Miami Beach, Fla.

A tropical European-esque escape where a passport isn't needed. A tan and relaxation is always on the agenda.

We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment.

Verona, Italy

More cappuccinos, a trip to Juliette's balcony and the arena, but the most fun, strolling the cobblestone streets aimlessly at night.

Big Sur, Calif.

Sunsets on the ocean and mountains in the ocean. Heaven is a place on Earth.
