What’s Working for me Wednesday – 25 more travel wishes

1 Comment

WWW25 more travel wishes!!! It’s what’s working for me this Wednesday. I spend far too much time dreaming of travel. My brother-in-law and his new wife are on a 12-month long honeymoon at the moment and I just heard from them the other day. They’re in Thailand after spending a month in India!  Am I jealous? Nah, not at all…..ha!  Seriously but.

To be honest, I don’t know if I’m cut out for that kind of travel. I did do it once but I met my now husband just 5 weeks into my trip so I never felt like I was away for a year, then going home. Somehow I knew that I would not be going home to Canada. I travelled during the 12 months and settled in Sydney for 6 months of it. That suited me great. I love to see new places and do new things but I also like the going home part. I feel too unsure and disconnected when I’m living out of a suitcase. Plus, I always wonder how people can afford to travel for long periods of time. I was on working holiday visas when I did it (12 years ago!!) but once you’re over a certain age, that’s no longer a possibility.

 Do you prefer long trips (more than 1 month) or short holidays?
