I made a new board on Pinterest. No, that’s not revolutionary news, but an attitude change came with it. I’ve always said I wanted to travel, I’ve lusted after Italy for years, I’ve dreamed of seeing the Eiffel Tower and being in London so that just maybe the Doctor will show up.
Doing all this dreaming hasn’t really gotten me any closer to experiencing these places. Sure, I’ve traveled to multiple places in the United States, mostly for conferences or school trips. I haven’t traveled to enough places just to be able to experience them.
That is changing. This Pinterest board is a promise to myself. It’s a promise that I WILL go. I WILL do. I WILL see. It won’t all be in the next year or maybe even in the next five years, but it WILL happen. There are too many places outside my backyard that I haven’t explored.
I will seek adventure.
I type this as my friend Liz and I wait in our terminal to head to NYC – our next adventure is beginning.
