It may be known that I don't like February so much - winter bleakness bums me out! - so it's a time rife with fantasy.I block weeks out of my calendar with things like "Go to California" when I haven't booked a ticket or made real plans.
I ask myself things like, "If you could go anywhere next month, if money and time were not obstacles, where would you go and why?"
Then I answer.I'd go to Bali. I'd go there because I hear it is beautiful, colorful and sacred, and when the winter blahs come after me, I need those precious things.
I also go around asking others that same question. Hearing about others' dream trips gives me a little boost of excitement. Plus it helps me know them better.
So, to you, I ask this question.
"If you could go anywhere next month, if money and time were not obstacles, where would you go and why?"

By the way, after I declared that I wanted to go to Bali, I was invited to go speak at a writing workshop there. Unfortunately I'll be in Rome in October, but I can't help thinking it was a bit of journey juju, n'est-ce pas?Share your dream trip here so you can enjoy your dream and real trips even more. And maybe invoke some of your own journey juju!
