Mar 27: Solo Traveller

Have you ever taken a trip by yourself? Do you prefer to travel with people or alone?

I have taken trips by myself, but they’ve only ever been interstate, so I guess it doesn’t really count. Most of the time I’ve always stayed with relatives, or when I was in my last couple of years of high school, I’d travel to Sydney and stay at my uncle’s hotel – I guess that’s really only been the closest I’ve ever gotten to a trip by myself.

I’ve always travelled with others – primarily, Hulk. There’s something enjoyable about travelling with other people, even if it’s just your partner. Unfortunately, we’ve never actually taken a holiday together, but I do wish we could find a small chunk of time to get away together and actually have a proper HOLIDAY, rather than just travelling for work. I’m sick of travelling overseas for work. I want so badly to travel overseas for recreation. I want us to have a holiday somewhere… ANYWHERE!!

It can even be great travelling with a few people… but I think that it’s also very testing on your limits and your friendship. Being confined to small spaces with a few people 24/7 can (and has) pushed me to breaking point, and I’ve needed to just breakaway and have some solo-time, just to be by myself, and not have to deal with who wants to do what, and waiting for other people to get back to the hotel because there’s only one or two keys between 4 people. Nope. Sorry. Not doing that again.

I do often think about the possibility of travelling by myself somewhere. I don’t actually know where or when, but I know that I’d like to do so at some point in my life. All I know is that I’d most definitely prefer it to involve a tropical island somewhere… bring on the clear blue tropical water and sparkling white sand!!

Daily Prompt: Predictions

There are 344 days remaining in the year. Describe what you’d like to be doing on day 211. (Hint: that’s July 30th.)

July 30th? Let me check my calendar…

Well, all my calendar tells me is that it will be a Wednesday, and it will be payday. So at least one thing is guaranteed – I’ll be transferring money from one account to another for half the month’s rent.

I’ll also be at work, no doubt, and then heading to the gym after work.

HOWEVER… as enthralling as all of that is, I would much prefer to be having a day off, or at least going to see a show, or even better, be somewhere overseas, in the sun, on the beach, soaking up some rays and having massages.

By that stage I will have written (hopefully) another 324-or-so posts in my blog (WOW, that seems like a lot, but it’s accurate!!) and will no doubt be sitting in the same place I am right now, writing away before I go to the gym.

I’d also like to have a nice little bank balance accumulating for an upcoming trip overseas…

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
