Travel Porn


Do you love travel porn? I don’t mean nude shots taken in exotic countries; I mean pictures of landscapes that can keep you clicking ‘next’ for hours, Articles on tiny towns in European destinations that make you forget the world around you. “Rolling hills? Mist in the valleys? Fire lit cottages? Oh yeah, don’t stop baby!”  
At work I will sometimes just get dragged into researching seven star hotels around the world, articles on the lonely planet website or photos on Condé Nast Traveller. The other day I was browsing through the Sydney Morning Herald Travel section and came across a photo documentary called 52 suburbs Rome. The photos are all wonderfully juxtopositioned with each other and gave me several smiles; you should go check them out! There is also another set called 52 suburbs Berlin on the site which is also pretty good.
Follow the link to have a look – http://www.smh.com.au/photogallery/travel/52-suburbs-rome-20120627-212cc.html. And the best thing about travel porn? It is totally acceptable to look at it at work.
