113) If you could take a one month trip anywhere in the world and money were not a consideration, where would go and what would you do?
Over the years, I've had many different answers to this question. I might read a book or watch a TV programme or see a film about Israel or South America or Australia or the Galapagos Islands and my mind will changed yet again and my sights set on someplace new.
It seems a little bit strange, the two huge parts of myself that really mean something to me both shout at me to do differing things. On the one hand, something deep inside of me craves a distinct home with roots and connections and a place to belong. I need that psychologically. And to completely go against that, I daydream of being more of a free-spirit and travelling to my heart's content, of never sticking around in one place long enough to pick up habits or routines. I want to see the world and to live in it.
And while in the past I've answered this question with a month-long trip to Italy exploring the different cities and regions. Or sometimes I'd answer China. Or Egypt. Or India. And I still do want to explore all of these places and more. I'd like to road trip around the US. I'd like to visit so many different places that it's hard to pin them all down.
But I think the place I most want to visit right in the moment is Japan. There's just something about Japan that calls to me. Ever since I was little and I picked up a book about feudal Japan from my dad's bookshelf, I've wanted to go. To see the sights, soak up the atmosphere, experience new things.
