Yesterday, in a fit of “this-year-has-been-terrible-i-need-an-adventure,” I did something totally out of character – I booked a flight to Indonesia.
To put this in perspective, I usually contemplate decisions like this for YEARS. I have been pricing flights to Ireland since I was 20. My friend told me she was moving to Indonesia in January. I looked at flights and decided there was no way. Over Memorial Day weekend, I started thinking seriously about it. Less than 10 days later I booked a flight. I don’t even have a passport yet.
Anyway, I’ve got the travel bug now. I used to have the buy-a-house bug, but it’s been summarily replaced. I’ve been compiling lists of places I’d like to visit, near and far in my head – I figure it’s time to commit them to the internet.
- Japan – Mt. Fuji, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki
- China – Great Wall
- South Africa
- The other 20 states I haven’t visited
- A few Caribbean Islands
- Costa Rica
