Day 14: A vacation you would like to take.

I would love to travel the world! by boat if possible. To see Europe, Africa, South America. To see all the continents even Antarctica. To see them on foot, by air, from a train. To see the people their traditions, cultures. To see the wonders of the world the Pyramids in Egypt the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. The scenery, the alps of Switzerland, the jungles of Brazil, the Aurora lights of Alaska. I would want to travel by boat as I love the sea, the thought of the mysteries of the deep, secrets hidden in its clear blue water safe from human eyes.
I love the song in Disney's Aladdin. The one that goes;
I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me

It describes how I feel about a world just waiting to be discovered. A whole new world, with new horizons and wondrous things to see just waiting for me to explore and find them.

This is my perfect kind of vocation with wonder and excitement at every turn. Of course I will probably never go, the reality would be nothing like the dream. It is the dreaming that makes it wondrous, covered with golden sparkles and shimmering in the moonlight, an elusive dream that if you caught it would be bruised and lose its sparkles to rough fingers.
