Come Escape On A Virtual Vacation

Friday, August 16, 2013

It's been a few very stressful weeks at my household. I need a mental health break. So, let's daydream for a minute:

You win the lottery and money is no object. You take care of your family, friends, and interests. You still have a bundle to spend, and you love to travel. What would you do?

A cruise around the world?
Rent a villa in Europe for a month?
Go RVing?

Sparkers, come dream with me. Let's go on the virtual vacation of a lifetime together!

    There are so many places I would have trouble deciding. .. from the mindless, childlike fun of Disney Parks to the castles of Ireland, Italy, Canada, Some of the other states... so many places!

    This one is actually pretty easy for me! I am heading out on a flight headed for Italy and I am spending a lot of time taking in all the sites of Italy and Greece! Of course, on the way back I may have to swing by Costa Rica for a few days of R & R lol! But hey, I have a bundle of money, right? :)

    You know, I actually wrote a blog about this a couple months ago. Not so much about what I would do in terms of vacation. That part is easy, I'd go on the bicycle tour Jim and I have been dreaming of. I just would sleep more often in expensive hotels along the way and take breaks to do more sightseeing and when the weather is bad....but otherwise I'd do pretty much what we were already planning on doing. Nothing better than biking along country roads looking at nature close up.

The one thing I realized that I would do if I won the lottery is get rid of a lot of "stuff" that I keep for "just in case". Clothes that don't fit right now, but I hang on to them, "just in case" I gain or lose weight. If I won the lottery, I'd just go out an get something I liked at the time. I'd also toss lots of things that I don't use every day.

Jim and I have really done a major "clutter reduction" since we moved. We essentially had three homes of stuff that got shoved into one last June when we sold our house in Illinois and my mother's home in Tennessee in the same week. It took a lot of tossing and donating to get rid of most of the stuff. We still have pockets of clutter but nothing like we did two months ago.

Honestly, today, I want nothing more than to go on our bike trip next spring (or even next fall). That would be pure heaven for me.

What would you do?
