Different people have different kinds of dreams. Some people want to be able to achieve something in a particular video game. Others want to watch a favorite artist live in concert. Still others want to be able to view wild animals in their own habitat. The list goes on. My own tastes aren’t particularly wild or crazy, but I do dream constantly about traveling to different places and countries.
There’s a bit of a collector in me, I think. So for example, if I read about the top ten tourist attractions in a particular country, it makes me want to visit all ten. It’s a bit like playing bingo, except with travel related lists. I remember that when I was young, I wanted to be able to visit all the wonders of the world. That’s still something that I think about, though I don’t know if that will ever happen. Or for instance, if I see something online about the various Bella Vista motels, it makes me want to visit all of them, again like a giant game of bingo. That seems more doable to me, and I’m sure that I’d enjoy being able to visit all those different parts of the country.
Things are, of course, different now that I’m an adult. When I was a kid, I’d just think about how I wanted to travel all over the world. But now that I’m older, I know that you need to take so many things into consideration. How am I going to afford the plane tickets, the stays in various motels, the food and all the other costs that come with travel? How will I be able to set aside enough time so that I can travel regularly? There are so many things to take into account. But I haven’t given up on my travel dreams. Instead, I continue to study ways to try to make these feasible.
