month of me – traveling sam

Livejournal friend elizalavelle asked: Where would you love to travel if money and time weren’t a factor?

Short answer: EVERYWHERE!

I do love to travel, I love to explore. I’ve never been one to take a vacation and sit still. If I’m going to sit still, I stay home and do that. But if I’m going away, I want to get out and do things. I want it to be an adventure!

I think a lot of it comes from being a Navy brat when I was little and moving place to place never bothered me. And my family never lived close so we were always taking car trips, so long plane rides don’t feel so bad, especially when I’m excited about the destination.

That being said, if someone showed up with a transporter and said I could go anywhere I wanted and stay as long as I wanted (because they would cover the costs), I would definitely take a trip back to Australia.

When I was 17, I went with a travel group called “People to People” that took high schoolers with good grades on trips around the world. We stayed for 18 days and I love it. But it was a tour group, I was a kid, so it was all very pre-planned. I would LOVE to go back now and just explore on my own.

(just looked through my Flickr and of course I don’t have scans of my Australia photos…I really need to just take a day off and sit and scan EVERYTHING I have for backup)

HA! Wait, I knew I had a newspaper clipping:

Second place goes to Japan. I’ve always wanted to go there. I always joke that it will be the closest I could get to visiting another planet. I just know it will all be so different, even the things that will seem familiar with all a Japanese flair to them.

Right now, I’m living vicariously through my online friend’s journal of her life in Japan. BUT it sounds like my brother will be heading West as part of his first assignment with the Navy. I want to save up and try to get out there while he is stationed there, which I think gives me three years. Looking at airplane tickets, I’m hoping that will be enough time to save up LOL.

What about you? Where would you go if there were no limits?
