If we live truly, we shall see truly. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Justine invited me to join her in the Trust30 Challenge and quite honestly, I have failed at the consistency of this challenge. But I’m enjoying doing a post every couple of days, including today’s post which was fun and all about travel:
Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there? (Author: Chris Guillebeau)
Italy, South America, Africa, Sweden, Hawaii
I could keep adding to this list. Quite honestly, it wouldn’t be very hard at all. And most of the places on this list, wouldn’t be too hard for me to do.
Hawaii wouldn’t be a crazy long flight for me (obviously) though price will still be an issue...But I guess it seems like the easiest option to fill.
My family is from Sweden and we are VERY proud of it! While I may technically only be about 25% Swedish, I have always felt more Swedish than I have anything else (and I’m 50% German!).
Italy is really just because I want the food and the wine! I’m sure it’s just gorgeous as well, but could you imagine my ‘Foodie for a Day’ posts? But really anywhere in Europe is on my list (including Paris again)!
I know my sister is going to hate that I’m putting this on here and in theory, I’ve now had 2 opportunities to go to Africa and have yet to actually go. But price is an issue and my health was a major issue the first time around and a slight issue this time, though it was mostly time off work (due to a lack of vacation time saved up having just gone full time). But I would still love to go. And knowing my sister’s passion and connection to Africa, I know she’ll be back and I would love to go with her some day on one of her visits.
And last but not least on my short list is South America. Notice I mentioned no place in particular here (or with Africa) because I would love to see as much as I possibly can! I realize this would potentially mean several trips. And I’m okay with that. :)
I also have interest in going on a yoga retreat, wherever that may lead me. Whether it be to India or South America, I don’t care - maybe even both! But there’s so much to experience and take in and collect from those kinds of trips. One of my favorite yoga instructors, Gigi Yogini, recently announced her retreat. She was talking a bit about it after class this week and it just sounded so amazing! She tried to make it something that was more on the affordable side but with options that could make it more expensive if you so desired those additional perks. Either way, I still think it falls out of my budget. But I do hope to make it to one some day.
