Was it the videos or did you finally realize that it’s important to seize the moment! You always wanted to travel, and now you have a) the time b) the funds c) the interest and enthusiasm d) you are in pretty good shape for the trips! (Yes – trips – because you’ve always talked about 'those three trips' on your so-called bucket list.
It’s funny how you know that planning ahead is probably one of the most important parts of travel. Sure, having those ‘spontaneous’ experiences are often the most memorable but really, you did not anticipate that going to Italy in the summer might not be the best time of year to travel. It was so HOT! And what was the deal with the crowds at JFK? Then again, just seeing the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel – and those canals in Venice – what a great experience. Your pictures are fantastic, and the album is almost done! It was all worth it!
Except for those flights. They were so long and cramped. Ok, ok, you promised yourself that you would not be such a complainer and try to focus on the positive. You really loved the Opera House in Sydney, and what about the kangaroos in Melbourne! You knew you would have to be stuck on the plane for 14 hours. You knew the food was not going to be good but wait – remember - you know you have to face these new adventures with a POSITIVE attitude. You learned a lot about travel. You realized that there are not always elevators or people who speak English no matter how much you carry on.
Speaking of carrying on, you found that sometimes you have to carry your luggage three blocks from the parking garage and across cobble stones just because the bell boy was away from his desk. Your back still hurts. Maybe it was the shoes? Then again, it’s all a learning experience. [Include at least two pages of travel pics]
