Blogtember: Three Months


I’ll be linking up with Jenni this month for her Blogtember series. Today’s prompt: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?

I didn’t even have to think twice about this one. It’s probably not any different from most other people’s wishes. BUT, if I had three months off I’d travel. I’d buy an around-the-world ticket, and off I’d go. My itinerary would look something like this (Please note, all images are sourced within the words of the document):

The western US and Canada for some hiking and the great outdoors.

I’d then head over to Asia, but this is where it gets tricky. Normally with around-the-world tickets, you can’t back track. So how do you get between all of the little islands and big lang masses without backtracking? Maybe it’s easier than it looks? I guess I’d stop first somewhere in the South Pacific…French Polynesia, Cook Islands, Fiji…they all kind of look the same, but that’s not a bad thing, since they all look like thiscook_islands South Pacific. Then I’d hit up New Zealand for more hikingwine-tasting, and kayaking.

Then I’d jet over to Australia and cover as much of the country as I could– including the outback. Sydney_Australia Uluru-Australia Sydney and Uluru  I’d rest my soul and renew my spirit and energy in Bali’s rice fields.

  1. Ha, ok, I think you might be going even more places than I am in my 3 months :) But, I think you’re right. I definitely screwed up by leaving out Seychelles!

  2. I’d do world travel too. But, I’d go on a world cruise. They take a little over 4 months and you cruise the whole way stopping off in ports around the world. It would be nice to have the luxury and eat amazing food and relax while seeing the world.

  3. You picked great destinations!
    I would like to visit Canada and really take my time exploring the country.
    Somehow i was always interested, but never had the chance to fly over there. Hope one day……

    Greetings from Germany.
    Found you through Blogtember linkup.

  4. this sounds like an amazing trip! Seriously you’ve got it all thought out!! I hope you get to do that one day!!

    P.S. I just wanted to Thank you for your comment on my blog. I had no idea DC had Cherry Blossom Trees!

  5. Sounds like an incredibly busy 3 months! You’ll need another holiday after all that travel. :) Oh, and Bali is just gorgeous! You may never want to leave. I went there in June with my mother and she practically had to drag me to the airport. Haha!

    • Toni I loved your idea of donating or volunteering for 3 months! Maybe on my selfish 3 month tour of the world, I could stop every once in awhile and volunteer as well? Thanks for saying hi! And if/when I make it to Bali, I’ll get in touch for recommendations :)

Say hello with a little note!
