I have just come back from work and I am in my last week there. My last day and the last day for Vinny's will be August 1st. This last week is going to go soooo slow! Two things I want to talk about today.
First, who say the story of the invisible treehotel on Yahoo!? I want to go! I looked on the website and also saw that they are building a bird's nest which I would love to see the inside of that and plus knowing the hotel is 40 km away from the Artic sells it for me. My goal as a kid and still is, is to travel to every continent and the North Pole. I don't know how I am going to get to Antartica or the North Pole, but I would be happy to say that I have been to the Artic.
Second, I also saw on Yahoo! the story of what singles should do before settling down. The number 1 thing was to travel alone because they say it builds confidence and self reliance. Now, I traveled alone for the first time, to Ireland last year as a gift to myself and I then traveled all over by myself for 6 more months. Going to Ireland, by myself, was scary, nerve wracking, exciting, fun and all around awesome experience. I don't think it built confidence in me at all. Within two days of being there and having every Irish person talk about how brave I was to travel alone in a different country, I began to think maybe I was very strange. Because to the Irish, it is strange to travel alone. I became self conscious and uneasy about being by myself. Yes, I was self reliant, but I have been for my most of my life, by choice. I take pride in knowing I can take care of myself without anyone's help. I am proud that I am able to travel all over the world and figure how things work, when it is so different from what I am used to, but I don't like traveling alone. If I had my pick, I would definitely travel with someone else. To tell you the truth, I was lonely. I had no one to talk to about these fantastic things I was doing, or seeing, or experiencing and I realized I wanted to share it with someone, anyone really. That is how I met so many wonderful locals. Because I had to talk to someone and the Irish are very good listeners.
So the question is, who is wants to go to Sweden with me and stay in a treehotel? Any takers?
Until tomorrow. Take care and be safe.
All my love,
