The world is not enough

I like dreaming. I like looking up travel fares to far destinations in Europe and checking if my calendar is free on particular days for travel. I like planning a tour that will never happen. I like to think I will go to Iceland some day soon. I like to think I’ll spend two months in Spain in the summer to learn Spanish. I like to think I will go to Sorbonne some day and study for free and say ‘bon jour’ to people, smiling charmingly. I also like to imagine, on occasions, when my imagination goes especially wild, that I will end up in New York, sipping coffee and dancing to the music of sirens. But not for long, no. I have a natural predisposition to disliking the States. Rio could be nice to check out, especially during one of those crazy carnivals. Maybe even India and Egypt. But I’ve never dreamt about those places. I did once think about renting a house in some remote village in Thailand for a year and living in solitude, occasionally going to Malaysia to shop. Hong Kong is a good place for shopping too! And I’m yet to check it out. Visiting Santa in Lapland has always been a Christmas dream of mine. Maybe walking around sandy beaches in Australia under the burning sun. Some free range riding of horses on the endless fields of Inner Mongolia, where the sky is genuinely blue and the grass is shiny green. And party in fancy clubs of Amsterdam. Then rent a bike and ride my way all over the rest of Europe: Austria – the motherland of Swarovski, Switzerland – the birthplace of my favourite chocolates, Belgium – that I know nothing of and etcetera, etcetera… I like dreaming, but I’d also like for my dreams to come true.
