Travel Dreams

Dreaming has been difficult in the past year. One dream I’ve always had for the past decade was to travel.

I wanted to see the world.

I wanted to be walking through the highest peaks and lowest troughs of the world.

I wanted to see all the animals and wonders of the world that I’d only seen through books and pictures.

I wanted to eat delicious food from all corners of the earth and visit all the places that have existed since the dawn of time.

I wanted to make new friends and see old ones.

This dream drove me to learn another language so that this dream could be made easier.

This dream drove me to start this blog.

This dream drove me to remain open hearted to all. Because we’re all the same.

This dream made me brave.

This dream taught me how to be alone and love it.

This dream made me realise what is really important in life. Spoiler alert, it wasn’t emails.

I’ve got other dreams but none of them as big as this one.

And now, this dream is still in hibernation.

Waiting until the wind changes.

Until we meet again.


Have you had any dreams impacted on in the past year?

  1. Same dream – similarly impacted! I had planned to take 2020 off from work to travel. I quit my job in January – knowing little about what was going to follow. But I hope the dream comes true some time in the future. 🙂

  2. I also planned to travel quite a lot this year, it is the first time that I have a “long term” job that pays me enough to go on holidays and I really wanted to travel around a bit, but the pandemic forced me to slow down. But things are getting better now, and I hope you can soon go back to your dream 😊

  3. If the dream is to feed the curiosity that is in me, it has gradually led me to travel further and further away, then to settle in several countries. For the past year, I have become more aware that I can also feed this curiosity with what is happening close to home, it is not only the exoticism of the place that counts but the way of looking at it.

  4. I’d hoped to continue traveling this past year, but alas, the pandemic got in the way. As much as it pained me to pause my travels, COVID-19 also made me reflect on all of the travels I’d gotten to do prior to it. It amazes me just how many countries and continents I’ve visited so far in my young life, and I know that I have decades left of my life to continue to travel, as COVID-19 won’t be here forever. I still keep dreaming! 🙂

      1. People are traveling freely domestically, so I wouldn’t mind doing so, too. I plan to go somewhere in October, so hopefully, it comes to fruition!
