Where do you find travel inspiration?

I usually get inspired to travel to a new place after reading an interesting article on it. I am a nerdy kind of traveler who likes to know the complete history before stepping foot in a city. You know, so I can rattle off WWII statistics over brunch. I’m charming that way.

I can say, without a doubt, I’ve never been inspired to visit a place based on a catalog.

Until now.

J. Crew this week released shots from their fall line–taken all over Amsterdam. The photos feel casual and off-center; somewhat as if they were taken for Instagram. All they need is an overhead shot of some Dutch pancakes! #yummy

Instead of being inspired to buy a sweater, the images inspired me to plan a trip back to Amsterdam. We visited in 2015 for their national holiday and had a blast, but have been meaning to return during a less-touristy time. Luckily, my husband has work in Brussels at the end of this week and a quick Google search revealed Amsterdam is less than two hours by train from Brussels. It feels meant to be!

(As for J. Crew’s clothing, I’m still a fan because they ship to Switzerland tax-free.)
