Keira Knightley and The Vacation High

And now, in celebrity travel gossip news

Keira Knightley, the svelte star of Bend It Like Beckham, found herself while on holiday in the Himalayas. Keira told Elle Magazine about her journey through the remote area: “No-one knew me or cared what films I’d been in.” The 22-year-old added that her eyes were opened, and she now wants an obscure life instead of “the celebrity thing.”

Ah, yes, I’ve heard this before… This is a little something I like to call “The Vacation High,” and it makes you want to stay on your dream vacation forever. But you know what? The High never lasts because trips are meant to be temporary; They separate you from reality just long enough for you to forget (or ignore) your ordinary life. Call me a cynic.

Don’t get me wrong; I think Keira Knightley is great, but I also think her post-travel euphoria will most likely subside once Disney offers her $10 million to star in Pirates of the Caribbean 4: Return to the Caribbean.

(Thanks, Kelly!)
