While growing up I dreamed of becoming the archaeologist who would discover the Machu Pichu of our decade.Yes, I would not only be a random archaeologist but a famous one.
I outgrew the archaeologist phase and then went through a ballerina stage. I have to say (cough) that even though I have a dancer's flexibility -according to both my yoga teacher and my running coach- I didn't even make it to ballet lessons. I didn't quite outgrew that chapter but continued with my non-dancer life (although I have to confess I have been making my own investigations about ballet for grownups) -suspicious eyes end that sentence- Other careers in my what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up list were: private investigator, Princess Leia and Jeannie from I dream of Jeannie.
Although many of those choices would have given great success in my adult life, I luckily found my true passion: writing. Words and letters in all their forms are my true love...next to running and nutella. Ok, maybe Heinz should be in there too but only if he comes third after nutella.
My career has included -but has not been based on- writing. That left me with wanting to write more which is one of the reasons I started my blog.
Following down the dream's path there is another dream career I haven't crossed out of my list yet. So what would the dream within a dream be Inception fans?
Being a travel writer.
There is a tiny technicality getting in my way though. In order to become a travel writer I would have to...well...travel. Since that doesn't happen as often as I would like I can't create content exclusively about my journeys. But what happens when I do travel? Well, I have no publishing outlet.
But my fellow readers don't fill your hearts with disillusions just yet. I have found the way to make my dreams come true. Since I am the Chief Editor of my blog I've decided to publish my own travel guides and become a travel writer for a post or two. It is so easy to make my dreams come true when I own the publishing medium.
So stay posted as tomorrow I will share with you my not-your-average travel guide for London. Next, Madrid.
Meanwhile here is the closure to my first marathon journey. Hubby put together this video...isn't he the best? Watching this will be a great way to remind me over and over and over (Yes, I will play it several times) how I felt crossing that finish line. I know, as if one could forget right?
Here you go everyone...let's make ourselves run today and travel tomorrow.
