I have been wondering about something. When you go on an adventure, at what point is it that you actually choose to go? Is it when you get to the airport, ticket in hand and bag on your back? Is it when you pick your dates and book your journey? Is it when the dream of somewhere new enters your head? Or is it some other time, when you just choose to break up your routine and do something different, just because?
There is something so exciting about booking flights. I have booked hundreds over the years, but I always get a thrill from seeing the destination spelt out on my ticket. It is like an invitation to adventure. And we are going on a seriously big adventure. We are moving to Japan and have booked our flights for the end of March. Not sure how long we will be away – it might be six months, it might be eight or nine. All I know is that it is going to be so special, and I cannot wait!
What adventures are you planning in 2012?
