Where in the World…

 

If there was one place you could go for a few weeks- without having to drive, fly or sail to, and was all expenses paid, where would you go?

Would you want something with a lot of adventure, or a mission trip? Maybe you’d like to go to multiple places, following your favorite Baseball or football team around the country. Or find a nice beach to relax on.

That’s the hard part about finding just one place.  There have been many places I’ve always wanted to go to- swimming and relaxing in peace and isolation on some beach in Tonga…

Climbing the Swiss Alps…

Visiting all the places where Michelangelo’s masterpieces were created and also touring the Italian countryside…

There’s a wide world out there, and I can’t imagine how much beauty there is in any country, any clime.

My main problem is while I don’t mind flying, I’d prefer to drive because I can stop and look at anything on a meandering stroll no matter if it’s through rolling farmlands of Southern Ontario in Canada, miles upon miles of flat rivers of grass in the Florida Everglades, the hazy Smokey Mountains of North Carolina or endless miles of desert scrub of southwest Texas. I can see a wild beauty in any place when I can drive- not so in an airplane.

I think while I’d still love some adventure and maybe some hill climbing or horseback riding and always beach combing, seems like my more adventurous spirit has been pretty much wrapped in tissue paper and stored in the back unused boxes of my mind.  But some day I’d still love to get out and just go, and find where my feet, or car tires take me.

I used to love just driving with no destination in mind. You can find some amazing places that way.

Where do you want to go, even if you just go in your mind?
