Standard

Wednesday, September 4: If you could take three months off from your Blogtember
current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? (bonus points for
fun photos from Pinterest, but don’t forget to cite the source!)

Now my initial thoughts on this prompt were split. I am (technically 1 month in to doing exactly this) having made the changes I have to start over. I re-read the prompt and thought about stepping out of my life for a bit and taking hold of a different one.

Of course we all have ambitions & most of you have read months of posts all about mine, so this is my chance to dream something different…

I would travel, absorbing the riches of culture and life. I have done some travelling, but the trip of my dreams needs crowd-funding! And realistically because I have taken time out and have yet to earn, travel is something that cannot be on my actual agenda for some time! Here I can just do it. I would also  learn to fly a helicopter. This is something I would love to do but doubt I ever will, especially if the pilots need perfect eyesight rule applies.

I would like to be outlandish and say that I would go to Mars on the space mission, but those chosen are only getting a one way ticket and I know I would miss Earth too much. Besides much as the Galaxy fills me with awe and wonder, as much as I love star gazing or flying, I have never had a desire to launch myself into space.

I could go and do something useful to help other people for three months. But I know in my heart of hearts if somebody turned around tomorrow and said – ‘Here’s 3 months, everything’s in hand we will keep this writing / working thing ticking over for you, sell your apartment, pay all your mortgages and bills and make sure your life is just as you left it (only better when you return)’ and then said ‘the world was my oyster…’ I would take it literally pack up a bag and take off.

Some places I have been, some I haven’t … I would love longer than 3 months, but I am used to packing 6months travel into 1.

ENJOY the trip!

  1. I like the way you work through your options here. I think I’d be like you and take off and go travelling . (I’m not sure if I’ll get this challenge done today. – a busy day of appointments up ahead).

  2. I had fun finding the pictures to match this response – kind of gave me itchy feet 😉
    Just do as many as you can – there is no consequence to missing them – I may struggle to do all 20; Just doing them when I can!
