SarabandNew Zealand

I talked about the sudden announcement of a trip to New Zealand here

It really did come completely out of the blue at a time when I was feeling a bit low and overwhelmed and I know B chose that moment to make his announcement in an attempt to cheer me up :) And it did!

But I did take careful note of his wording. “All being well” is his get-out clause. This is quite normal for B; it is quite common for him to talk of wonderful things and for them then to drop off his radar or for circumstances to take a different tack which means he changes his mind. The first few times this happened I found it very difficult. Now I understand it’s just who he is. I know that he really does mean things when he says them. The spirit is willing at the time – then life gets in the way and/or the spark dwindles…... sigh

So although I was delighted at his decision about this trip I also kept at least one foot on the ground. 2012 is a long way off. There are many reasons why this might not happen. Indeed, that very same night I mentioned how excited I was and already he was mumbling and backtracking – just anxious that I hadn’t interpreted his words as an irrevokable commitment.

I hadn’t. I still haven’t. I’m keeping quiet and calm and hoping all turns out well :)

And yesterday we were talking about something or other (probably to do with sport I expect) and he said: “Oh, you’ll see when we get there….” So in his head, we’re going! Fingers crossed that it stays that way! 3 years ago


SarabandThe list is growing

2 more destinations that should really be on my list. So now it looks like this:

  • revisit Paris
  • return to the Kruger Park
  • see more of Norway: travel the Norwegian coast
  • visit Seattle
  • cross Canada by train
  • drive down the west coast of America
  • see New England in the fall
  • see the Northern Lights
  • visit New Zealand
  • see more of Italy
  • spend time in Ireland 4 years ago

SarabandI love to travel

I love the excitement of the journey itself and the anticipation of the arrival. I’m not especially well-travelled and because of other choices I’ve made at the moment, I’m unlikely to travel much in the near future. But that’s okay – who knows what’s around the corner.

Like many others, I have my list of places I would love to visit. Initially I listed them as separate goals on here but I’ve moved them now and am consolidating them under this generic goal (a goal that will never be completed as it is presently worded).

Here’s my list – in no particular order:
  • revisit Paris
  • return to the Kruger Park
  • see more of Norway: travel the Norwegian coast
  • visit Seattle
  • cross Canada by train
  • drive down the west coast of America
  • see New England in the fall
  • visit New Zealand

But of course there are countless other wonderful places not on my list that are just waiting for me to discover them and if the opportunity presents itself I shall take it. I’ve seen several places on that basis that I would never have chosen to visit. I was so glad that I had the chance.

At the moment then, this isn’t a goal I can work towards actively beyond putting it out there. But sometimes, the intention is enough :) 4 years ago
