|A Milford Sounds birthday|
Last week during an ice-breaker at one of our regional training-workshops we were asked to share how we would spend 1 million dollars.
In the short time I had to think about it, I came up with:
"Pay off student loans, throw a party, buy a farm to retire on."
I've been mulling over the question for a whole week now.
Yes, I took the innocent ice-breaker to heart!
So I realised, who am I kidding, I won't buy a farm. (Well, not yet anyway.)
I am going to pay off my student loans, throw a party.
Put my belongings in storage and ... travel the world.
To every corner possible.
But for now, I will just continue to try to do the same without the million.
And while holding a steady job.
I spent the last month or so in Middle -Earth (NZ for you non-LOTR fans, gasp!)
The 10th country I have been to outside my own.
It was my 29th birthday, spent in a different country 4th time in a row.
(THAT was purely coincidental.)
This time around it was spent with two friends, travelling through the beauty that is NZ, to the Milford Sounds.
No better way to spend a birthday than in awe of the earth in all its majesty,
And feeding my soul with adventure!
(And geeking out on the fiords, and re-living my High School Geo classes in real life!)
I don't wish for 1million dollars.
But I am definitely in for the adventure.
