Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll: A Whole New World

In the course of a couple of months, I’ll be leaving my hometown behind and moving abroad with my family. I believe, as a kid, I had those fantasies about taking off and living someplace else, someplace different than where I was though I can’t recall any specifics about where I wanted to be aside from not here. In college, I was lucky enough to study abroad in Japan, where I ended up because the program was in English and my financial aid would cover my tuition. I loved it.  I’d go back in a heartbeat. But it wasn’t my fantasy destination.  So here I am, packing up to move to a place that not only isn’t my ‘fantasy destination’, but was never even on my radar as a place I’d even visit as a tourist. I’m excited, I’m a little anxious, and more than a little perplexed about the turns my life has taken.

So, all this thinking has got me thinking; where is your fantasy destination? Where would you love to live if life wasn’t an impediment?
