I would love to see the U.S., Canada and ‘travel the world’. When I was growing up, international travel was out of reach for my family. It was considered an unnecessary extravagance.
After I started work, I was focused on saving for a home, and wishing for a family, so travel was not high on my agenda. (I wanted a husband not a holiday Lol!) Our island honeymoon planned in Mauritius was canceled due to a cyclone hitting the island, and all flights halted. And then kids arrived. Nowadays my international trips seem to be reserved for going back to South Africa every few years.
Unless I make it a priority above all my other priorities, international travel and ‘seeing the world’ may just remain wishful thinking.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Out of Reach.”
Write about the one X that got away — a person, an experience, a place you wanted to visit. How much would you change about your life to have it within reach again?
