3 Months Off? Let the Travel begin!

Day 2 of the Blogtember challenge posed the question:

If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?

I have often dreamed of being able to take 6 months to a year off from my regular day to day life, so if I had the opportunity to take off for 3 months I'd be elated. So, what to do with all that time... of course I would LOVE to travel and that would be my first priority.

I have always had this dream of going to live in Paris... a quaint pied-a-terre in the heart of the city... gorging myself on croissants while perfecting my French. My days would be spent exploring and riding a charming bicycle with a basket. Drinking lattes. Wearing all black and maybe even smoking a cigarette lol. That would be month 1.

Month 2 would be spent collecting passport stamps to all of the cities I've wanted to visit, but never imagined staying long term. I'd deem it: Operation 'Get my Passport Stamp Weight up' lol. Countries like Egypt, Australia, Greece... I would take in all the sights.

My final month would consist of me indulging my inner cancerian water baby at the beach. I've always said that if I wasn't living the extreme city life (high rise condo, fast paced city, go go go lifestyle) I'd want to live on a beach, on an island. I absolutely adore the relaxed vibe of beach living. I would spend my days scuba diving, eating fresh fruit, perfecting my tan... wearing no shoes, tons of sun dresses... just the epitome of a beach babe.

The more I look at this post, the more I get inspired to actually take strides to do this. One of my favorite bloggers, Happy Black Woman, actually blogged about her travels overseas and I found it to be very inspiring. It's so easy to get caught up in our day to day life and forget that we were meant to do more than work for a company and a bottomline. By all means, please love your job... but don't forget to love your life and LIVE it to the fullest.
