#Reverb12, Day 5: What was Your Dream Destination?
Posted Dec 05 2012 12:00am
Throughout the month of December, I’ll be participating in #reverb12 : celebrating the successes of 2012, honoring the challenges of 2012, and planting the seeds for a rich and rewarding 2013. December is the perfect time to reflect on the year that has passed and start to manifest dreams for the new year.
Day 5 – What was your dream destination in 2012 and why?
It can be a town, city, country or region real or imaginary and doesn’t matter if you actually got there or not!
It’s interesting to get another question relating to travel (I related this #reverb12 post to travel the other day). I’m going to take this as a sign from the universe that I need to pack some bags and head somewhere soon.
I’m sad to say that travel hasn’t been on the forefront of my mind lately, mostly because of budget restrictions. I know that if I gave up some of my everyday luxuries, like my ridiculous cable bill, I could put that money toward a fabulous trip. But the thing is, I enjoy my t.v. shows and movies too much to give them up. It really is all about priorities.
Let’s pretend for a moment that I did have that $1700 to spend on a trip. My first choice would be to go to Maui, Hawaii. I’ve never been before, but every photograph I see of the island makes me long to soak up some of the slower island lifestyle along with the sun’s rays.
On a trip to Maui, I’d love to:
take surfing lessons
go on a zipline
attend a luau
take hula dancing classes on the beach (I do it here, why not there?)
enjoy the best sushi this side of Japan
read countless books while on the beach, sun bathing
enjoy morning yoga overlooking the ocean
see a live volcano from a helicopter
daily strolls along black sand beaches
I like the idea of a vacation where the main focus is on relaxing, but that also allows me to accomplish items on my Fitness Bucket List , too.
I may not have made it to Maui in 2012, but it will be in my sights for summer 2014, if not sooner.
