When I was eight, which was years before the first moon landing *cough*, I announced my intention to move to the space station when I grew up.
You know, the wheeled city in space with 50,000 people on it?
Well. I’m still waiting for them to build it, as well as still waiting to grow up, apparently – but that’s another story.
These days my dreams are more earth-bound, but no less ambitious. I want to travel to every continent, Lonely Planet-style. Vagabonding, backpacking, trekking, hostels – whatever I have to do – I’m going.
Following your dreams is what life’s all about, isn’t it? As Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
