Wednesday, September 4: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? Hands down, I would travel. I didn't ever think I would get to travel anywhere, simply due to the cost. College was pricey enough, despite scholarships and the hard work of three side jobs. But miraculously, I was able to study abroad twice: two weeks in Rome, two weeks in Paris, two days in Munich, two days in Vienna, three days in Barcelona and five weeks in London with side trips to Venice and Dublin, and then another week-long trip to the Lake District in England. It changed my whole life.
So if I had three months to do whatever I wanted, I would travel--to Australia with my best college gals, back to Paris and Rome and Barcelona for another spin, to Croatia with my mother and sisters to explore our heritage, to Denver and Napa Valley and Boston and San Francisco and Cinque Terre and Positano and the French Riviera and Portugal and Tokyo and Cairo. And pretty much anywhere and everywhere I could go, cost excluded.
