Rambles, Plans, Dreams

It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to figure out that I love to travel.  I adore planning out new holidays, pouring over travel books and reviews, searching the internet for the best deals.  I am a frustrated would-be pilot (maybe one day!), so I love the airport/flying part, the thrill of sitting in the airplane seat, feeling the roar of the immense engines as we tear down the runway for lift-off.  I love seeing the new sights, smelling the new smells (well, sometimes)  and trying out new foods.

I found a great passage from Last of the Donkey Pilgrims by Kevin O’Hara that encapsulates many of my thoughts:

” ‘Tis the beauty of travel, isn’t it,” she looked wistfully upon her poor but scenic domain, “seeing things you’d never see if you just kicked about the old place.  And you’ll take it all home with you, won’t you, these memories, and be all the better for it.  Well, be off with your rambling, so, and I’ll keep on with my dreaming.”

“It’s only a half-door you’re standing behind,”  I told her.  “You could easily hop over it.”

“Oh, I know,” she smiled, “but could I ever hop back in again?”

Enjoy your rambles, planning, and dreaming.  Slainte, Lisa

  1. Pirate ships — white sand — cabanas – blue water. Where could that be?? Where ever it is, it looks relaxing and enjoyable. They do not appear to be palm trees. ?????

    • This is Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas…it’s a wonderful private island owned by Carnival. I thought it would be terribly commercial and contrived, but we really enjoyed it. They had a restaurant/bar inside the pirate ship. The sand really was that white, and we floated in that water all day. Ahhh… 🙂 Right up you two’s alley.

I welcome your thoughts...
