It’s a cop out, I know, but I honestly have to say all of them.
Growing up in a teeny tiny town (there were 120 kids in my primary school, ranging from 5 to 11 years old) it seemed that life was dreamily content. Living on a farm, hanging out with the cows and a crazy ginger cat, going to school farm days where people would bring their pet sheep and everyone knew everyone.
Life then expanded as we moved to bigger and bigger cities. When I was almost finished high school, I moved to the biggest city in New Zealand, then studied at University in Wellington. The world, was pretty awesome and seemed huge to that 7-year old farmgirl.
This was until I met Anna, the girl whose fault it is that I now live in England. Her wall of glorious travel photos ticked something in my head. She’ll never know what profound effect she had on my life, and sadly though we have lost contact I hope she is having a wonderful life.
What she showed me is that the world really is our oyster. With a little elbow grease, and at times a little luck, the adventures you will embark on will change your life. Change who you are. Change the way you think.
All you have to do is make a decision to Just Say Yes and appreciate the small things that you may never have seen or experienced. It’s up to you. Be brave.
And yes, I’m proud to be an okie from Muskogee. Or rather Ngaruawahia. Try to pronounce it, I dare you…
While you are beginning to plan those dreams, we would love you to join in & visit some of Kelly, Rebecca & I’s favourite bloggers getting involved in our monthly travel linkup, open from the 1st to the 7th of the month.
