I visited a blog for a publishing company where the blog posts are by the writers. One post talked about road trips. The final paragraph asked about a favorite road trip - or a fantasy road trip with unlimited resources. Of course, I went for the fantasy. But I did use a bit of my personal history in the making of it.
Many years ago, I went on a fantasy trip - all alone - to England. I flew into Heathrow and took the train/subway right into London. There I got off at the Lancaster Gate stop and walked to my hotel. (Yes, I had too much luggage - but I was young and foolish) A friend's brother had found the hotel for me and met me there. We went to eat with a couple from ???Germany??? Truthfully I don't remember - I was very jetlagged. That meal was my first time eating mussels. Mmmm. Yes travel does broaden you - sometimes in more than one way. Ha ha.
After a week in London, I took the train south to Shaftesbury where the friend's brother was teaching at a church school- he is a priest. As school was out for a week, he took me around the countryside and showed me some sights I would never have seen. On one of these excursions we went to Durdle Door.
Do you ever go on imaginary trips? Do you take flights of fancy? Do you have a bucket list? While this is one trip that I have marked off my bucket list - I would go again in a heartbeat.
