five minute friday :: If I knew I could, I would…
The answer is always the same. If I knew I could, I would live a nomadic life. The journey would begin in Pennsylvania, where I would spend a week visiting my best good friend, letting her show off her homeland, and then I would help her pack and take her with me for the rest of the journey. We’d hop the pond to London first, then take in the majestic cliffs of Ireland and rolling hills of Scotland, then zip over to Paris for a long leisurely adventure. After that, Spain, Italy, Greece… Eastern Europe, the Holy Lands, Russia, China, Japan… and everywhere in between. A lengthy touring of Africa would follow, and then a long (long, long) holiday in Australia, the land of my lifelong dreams. We’d eventually meander back to Hawaii and Alaska, then take a casual tour of North America on one enormous road trip. Eventually we’d make it down to South America, as well, after which we’d begin the journey all over again. Just two single ladies on adventure, pen and journal in hand, cameras at the ready to capture every impression of all that we encounter.
I would if I could. Oh, yes, I would.
