Just following the sun…


The Prompt:

What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide?

I am a happy-go-lucky sort of traveller.  Only thing is that when you’re going somewhere that requires visas and passports that happy-go-lucky attitude soon fades.   I don’t like being tied up with a schedule when I am supposed to be relaxing and enjoying myself, and that will hardly work for a small child either.  I am lucky in the sense that my two older daughters do their own thing often when we go away since they have different interests. 
My dream though, as I have mentioned before, is to have some sort of camper and travel along the South African coastline, with no time or an actual destination in mind, just following the sun in the day, and the moon at night…now wouldn’t that be nice?

seaside The Daily Prompt: If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you?

I’ve said many times before that I’d love to have some sort of camper and travel with no special destination in mind.  The South African coast would be a good place to start.  Day dreams are good friends, but we all have responsibilities, and I have three responsibilities that I totally adore and they overtake my daydream by far… 🙂
If it was possible though, I would need to have a home base, not that I’d be there often, but we all need some place to call home.
This song was playing on the radio while I was typing this post so I thought I’d add it.

Away from here…


Todays Daily Prompt: Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).

I think I may have told you this before, but I’d love to have some sort of camper and travel either the SA coast or the Karoo.  The plan would be to have no particular itinerary.  I should travel and stop off where ever I want to go…pitch a tent, make a fire etc..under twinkling stars.

Why have I never done this you ask?  Well, first there is the time issue, you know, never having enough of it.  Then there is the fact that I have absolutely no sense of direction but I suppose I could get a GPS.  Also, I have no idea on how to camp, pitch a tent or even change wheel! We wont even talk about making a fire *blush*

I went camping once many years ago with a group of divers *BIG MISTAKE* it was horrible, and the company was not what I expected it to be…and there you have it, the total extent of my camping experience or should I rather say “one camping experience” 🙂
