Anyway I digress. I never really understood that, people with that far away longing in their eyes, wishing they had done whatever something. Why I wonder "had"? You're not dead, do it now I say!
Then I stopped flying, feeling as though I got all I wanted from it, and it was time to move on to get a "real job." Don't even get me started on the "real job" I ended up in. But in between there and here, I worked at the airport doing customer service, another post altogether that one is. I found myself caught up in a miserable job that didn't pay enough money.
Then I had a coworker who quit, he was going to backpack Europe. Immediately in my mind, I was a wayward traveler, with nothing but a backpack and gumption, I saw it all..freedom, excitement, adventure..
And I cannot believe the words that popped out of my mouth. Yep, you prolly already know it's coming.
I've always wanted to do that!
He laughed, and I knew that he was thinking the exact same thing I always thought when people said that to me..well! if you always wanted to then just do it!
I spent the rest of the week in a stupor at what had happened to me. Actually, it's been about 4 years now and I still can't believe I said that.
Today! My longing for travel and desire to break the boredom has once again reared it's pretty little head. I have decided that hubs and I need to briefly move to Italy. Like for a year or so. I am not one to say..I always wanted.. even though I stinkin said it. Living in Europe has always been a dream and I shall say the time has arrived.
Once I convince dear husband o mine.
In my mind, I already live here:
And stop here for delightful Italian fare...
...and hot dogs. Apparantly the same in every language.
And go for nighttime strolls past here:
