This week, it suddenly feels and smells like summer: Graduation celebrations abound, school is out (or we are at least centimeters from the finish line), and those who aren’t on a school schedule are taking in the well-earned sunshine after a volatile winter. Our focus is quickly turning to summer travel. For those who aren’t into researching and organizing, the task of planning a jaunt can be so overwhelming we question whether to even take the journey. There is a fine line between a vacation and a mere relocation. Further, I don’t know about you, but my sense of direction is horrific. The thought of an “easy road trip” is anything but. Maps are laughable to me. Anyone who ever drove in Los Angeles prior to 2000 can recall the Thomas Guide. I mean, who could actually read that thing and drive at the same time? And a globe? My kids are learning about bodies of water that weren’t even on the globe when I was in school (and, may I remind you, it wasn’t that long ago). Clearly, the solution is to throw logic to the wind and have fun with maps, globes, and cars in contemporary art. It may not get us far geographically, but at least we will be enriched from the experience. And, to make it more worth your while, we have tastemaker travel advice and shopping for the best summer travel pieces.
