The summer before I graduated college, I traveled to southern India to spend a month interning at a music magazine. It was the first time I'd taken a trip without my family, and I was terrified - as the plane touched down in Bangalore, I contemplated turning right back around and going home. But as you can probably guess, I didn't, and I'm so grateful for that. I had the time of my life. Toward the end of my stay, I remember thinking, I could do this forever. As long as I can travel, I'll be the happiest person alive.
Travel's been on my mind a lot these days; I daydream constantly about my next big trip. I've always wanted to return to India (in four weeks, I barely made a dent), but I'd also love to stroll the streets of Marrakech, sample Spanish seafood, see the padlocks of Paris - the list could go on and on. These watercolors, by the Sketching Backpacker, are only fueling the wanderlust.
