I’ve been tagged ! I don’t even remember who tagged me in this – better late than never.
Your 11 Question’s to the theme, what would you do if… ?
Your house were on fire what would you grab 1st to rescue?
After shoving my kids out the door or window, I would save my laptop as it contains my life. All my pictures, my writing, basically – my life.
You could vacation anywhere, money no object, where would you go?
Well it’s a good thing I was tagged twice so I can split this up between the two. I would spend at least a year in the UK – including Ireland. (Disregard political boundaries, because it’s all included on my big tour.) Touring every castle and ruin that dots the countryside, touring every standing monolithic site, every historical site, visiting my friends that live there. This would be a working vacation as I would be photographing and documenting everything for ideas for future writing. There are several touristy places I’ll skip thank you as I think they are just that – tourist traps. I have a list of about 20 must sees. I think a year might just be enough time to fit them all in. My second destination would be somewhere tropical in the Caribbean.
Your book became #1 New York Times best seller, who would you tell 1st?
Probably my girls so we could squeal together properly!
If you could go back in time, would you change anything in your life?
Oh so many things I’d change! I’d change my name, I’d change the activities I was involved with. I’d have majored in creative writing not geography /cartography. I would have studied more and skipped class less. I would have invested more funds, and been less frivolous. I would have never stopped being active, or gain all the weight I did. I would have seized more opportunities, taken more chances, taken more dares, dreamed more and never shelved any of them. And I would deposit a huge amount of money into my bank account from an anonymous donor.
But then again, if I were to go back and change any of those things I may not be who I am today, I might not have my girls, and wouldn’t have learned the life lessons that I inherently have to learn the hard way. I would in fact by going back in time disrupt the space/time continuum and alter my current plane of existence in ways that I can not imagine. One little pebble causes ripples that travel a great distance, and what if one of those ripples changed the existence of my children? Children change you. They make you think beyond yourself, cause you to mature in ways you couldn’t imagine until you have them.
You won a large lottery what would be the 1st thing you would do? Book my dream vacation and consider taking someone with me. Not a guarantee, but I am willing to consider.
You could travel in space. Would you? I don’t think I would. There are too many places on earth I haven’t seen yet.
You could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
