When people are asked to name a dream travel destination, a majority usually select fantastic tropical locales featuring swaying palms. Work, family obligations and the general routine of normal life makes many of us dream about exotic travel; windy beaches, margaritas by the pool and of course palm trees.
Whenever I travel to a tropical destination, as soon as I see my first palm tree I know that fun and relaxation are sure to follow. There is just something inherently pleasing about palm trees, both for what they represent as well as their own natural beauty, that never fails to put a smile on my face. That’s why I call palm trees my happy trees, and to help share this feeling of relaxation and dreams of tropical vistas, here are some of my favorite examples of the all-important palm tree.

Hi Matt! I just found your website yesterday and I love it. It’s nice to find a fellow travel geek. My boyfriend and I are just two regular people that love to travel as well, and we do it as often as we can. I am always the planner and I’m obsessed with planning trips – from finding flights and hotels to crawling the web to see what there is to explore at our destination. It’s nice to know there are others out there like me… I have a special love for palm trees also. Thanks for your tips and entertaining reading. :)
I am SO with you on this! We have no palm trees in Vermont, so when I land somewhere on vacation and I see palm trees, I get a big smile on my face. They’re a fairly crucial component to my happiness and state of mind on vacation. Seems weird, but true.
You are right, there is nothing like a palm tree. I love when they have coconuts and they fall on the ground! Priceless. Thanks for sharing!
Ummmm yeah, I like this post. I’ve lived in south Florida now for almost 10 years and the palm trees still make me smile. You’re so right when you say “Happy Tree”

Hi Matt! Came across your blog and I must say, this was a nice article. have you been to India yet? There’s plenty to see in India too. Do visit sometime :). Also, I’m very happy to see your love for animals and your articles on animal rights issues. Nice to see these issues being highlighted.
