I thought for a while about doing another post and it took me a while to come up with a topic, but i finally have. So here goes, for making something coherent and that people might enjoy reading.
As you can tell from the title, this is gonna be all about traveling. Which is something I have wanted to do since I can remember. But it had only been recently that I have actually started to put these thoughts and plans in to order and written word. Because when I finally get the chance to do it, I want everything to be perfect to know that I am doing and seeing all the things I want to. I know that sounds kinda OCD but that’s the way I am. I am a stickler for organization. I mean I don’t plan to do any major journeys just yet but I have guide books and stuff so I am prepared for everything and can be sure that I am doing what is right for me.
There are only to countries that I want to tour extensively and they are Australia and Canada. I don’t know what it is about these two countries but they seem to have a pull on me. And I think there is a part of me that wants to see all the fantastic sights that both places have to offer. Hence the reason for all the planning, I would hate to get there and not know what I wanted to see or do.
Lets start with Canada. I want to see Niagara Falls and The Northern Lights. Amongst other things which include seeing polar bears up close and visiting the ruins in Quebec. My absolute dream trip would be to travel from Vancouver all the way across to Montreal, either via train or in a car. There would be some many places to see and I cannot begin to fathom the views that would be out there on the open road. I can’t help but smile when I think about it and the fact that one day I am going to make it happen.
Now on to Australia. I normally do not like the heat. I tend to get really grumpy in the summer, but there is something about the bright sunshine and endless beaches that they have to offer that has changed my mind about hot places. I also would love to travel round the outback and be able to camp out in the middle of nowhere. I can just imagine the stars in the night sky. Be nice to see a night sky that isn’t ruined with light pollution.
The one thing I want to be able to do before I go to Oz, is be able to surf. And to rectify this by hopefully going on a holiday to Cornwall, where you can have surf lessons. Because I would be able to say that I have surfed on Bondi Beach.
I think the reason I want to travel so much, is that I know I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in Derby. Feeling like I am stuck in a rut. Doing the same things and seeing the same people all of the time. I want to experience things and when my days finally count down. I want to know that I lived each and every day to the fullest and did the things that I wanted to do.
Because in my opinion, life is made of moments and little things that makes you smile. And you have to make the most of what you have been given. Which includes surrounding yourself with people who make you smile and fill you with hope and positivity (I know I have a few of those in my life right now, and I hope they know who they are.)
Anyway I am going to sign off now so I can go back to planning and daydreaming
