Like really silly.
When people are dreaming about their never ending getaways that graze tropical coasts on picture-perfect beaches — the ones that have hammocks strung between two random palm trees where you can lounge and fall to sleep with the gentle noise of lightly crashing waves in the background — I’m doing the exact opposite.
I think most travelers have their dream trips planned out — y’know, the ones that they would do if money were never an object. Well, I do, too.
Where would you go, right now, if money weren’t an issue?
I was asked this question while roaming around in Queensland a month ago. I paused. Obviously, if money weren’t an issue, I would go EVERYWHERE (well most places), but to answer the question of “right now”…
I would go to Russia… and Uzbekistan… and Georgia… and to all countries of the former USSR! Actually, you could say that I’d be doing Katie’s trip right now!
What the hell is wrong with me?!
But, it’s true. I have no other aspiration at this moment (except for circumnavigating Australia in a 4WD) than to spend a more in-depth period of time in the countries of the former Soviet Union. First up is Kyrgyzstan, and Russia is soon to follow in the spring. I’ve got plans to attempt the Russian language again, cross an item off my experience list, and research a topic further for a book I want to write.
But that’s me! How about you?
