A magical journey

“Life is a magical journey, so travel endlessly to unfold its profound and heart touching beauty.” – Debasish Mridha

I started traveling later in life. Growing up in a third-world country where travel was mostly for the wealthy, my dream of visiting magical places like Disneyland only came true when I went there with my young family.

But even after many decades, castles still hold a magical allure for me.…

Visiting Sagrada Familia is a dream come true for my husband and me. Ever since we missed the chance to enter in 2016, we’ve been planning and anticipating this remarkable architecture. Experiencing it now is truly a special and magical feeling for both of us.

Experiencing sunrise as you depart and reaching a new destination by sunset creates a truly magical feeling.

While seeing swans may seem ordinary, spotting them in various destinations adds a magical and unique aspect to the experience.

Traveling in the rain can be bothersome, yet it has the potential to create a magical atmosphere.

Christmas time is magical whichever way you look at it.

Indeed, the true magic of travel is discovered in exploring new places with loved ones, forging lasting memories, and capturing cherished moments through photos.

    And staying healthy enough to do it. I love those autumn leaves in a puddle and my favourite Liverpool lads in the rain. The Sagrada Familia is a once seen, never forgotten, isn’t it? Quite incredible!

    1. Teresa says:

      Oh that too haha
      Thanks for liking those leaves that I found on our road trip near McDonalds and those lads was a bucket list thing for me.
      Thanks for the comment Jo.

    You’ve captured well the magic of travelling 🙂 I love the autumn leaves in the rain, and the Beatles too – proof that bad weather needn’t spoil a trip or your memories of it!

      Thanks so much Sarah for commenting. Yes, the rain is a bit of a spoiler but what can you do.

    Wonderful photos you take of your travels, and that you are able to do so. Thanks for sharing your experiences here, as myself and others will probably never get to see in person. I’ve only been inside one castle – in Nuremberg, and that was sure an experience to see that one. 🙂

    1. Teresa says:

      An experience that will last you a lifetime. Thanks for stopping by and for liking the photos.

    Traveling is indeed a magical experience as you’ve captured so well in this one Teresa. Loved all of your images especially the castles and swans.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks so much Tina. Swans are really magical and simply beautiful creatures.

    Traveling – yes, it is magical, and you have shown it so well in your images from your travels! The leaves, the Beatles, the Castles…and one of my own most magical moments ever – the visit to La Sagrada Familia. I am glad we have been able to visit, and hope for another visit in 2026, when it is planned to be finished.
    I think you might have forgotten one thing…your awesome sketches! Thank you for posting!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks A-C glad you liked my photos and thanks for remembering my sketches. So true that the Sagrada is one of the most magical places in the world.

    I thoroughly enjoyed travelling along with you through this post – so many lovely magical sights (I love castles & Disneyland too). And for the glimpse of your lovely family.

    And for these words which resonate: “Indeed, the true magic of travel is discovered in exploring new places with loved ones, forging lasting memories, and capturing cherished moments through photos.”

      Thanks Ju-Lyn, glad you liked my thoughts on the topic.
