Dreaming, awake or asleep, is so good… I dream a lot about the trips I want to make even if they are in a distant future. When I watch movies, I read magazines, or even wandering through social networks, I find those perfect pictures of incredible and stunning travel destinations where I would love to go.
I always heard that dreams are to fulfill but there are several types of dreams. If you ask me what my dreams are, obviously, first of all I will say: to be healthy (me and my loved ones), to be happy, have a job to make some money (it’s not everything in life but it’s also important) and then, I will say travel the whole world. I know you can’t get to know the whole world from one day to the next, but step by step it’s possible. Besides, it’s almost impracticable because a “normal” person needs to work to earn money and only then can travel.
I can say right now that I am not a person to go for an unplanned adventure. I really like to know what I’m going for because I don’t like the unknown and I need to have my feet firmly on the ground. It’s because of this that I am a maniac for the trip planning. As I plan so much, I am never worried or anxious about any trip because of how this or that is going to go. I always have everything under control, or at least I think I have.
When I’m planning, I’m dreaming too. The trip I spent the most time planning was one I made to New York in 2018. I will now tell you the story behind the scenes… Around the time I was in ninth grade, my parents promised me that if everything went well when I finished university, they would offer me a trip to New York. I did my part and conclude my master’s degree in 2018 (looks like it was yesterday!). They kept the promise and on August 2018 we went on the adventure to explore New York. It’s ridiculous to say but it took me almost two years in order to create the travel itinerary that I used there. I like to analyze all the details and it’s relevant for me to try to fit as many attractions as possible. Since I’m going, it’s better to make the most out of it! And this is an advice whatever the destination. Go, play, see and the most important of all, enjoy!
Sometimes unforeseen happen but it’s life and we have to turn it around and move forward. I was planning a ridiculously incredible trip (USA Golden Triangle) for the summer of this year, but bigger circumstances happened, and they disabled the realization of this dream. I’m trying to get the best of it and if we think about it, it’s the way I spend another year dreaming while I continue to plan the trip. It’s really hard to postpone but it has to be. Health above all!
Just to finish, don’t forget… never give up your dreams! 💪❤️
