I had worked, for 15 months to save up, in a little place called Halls Gap in the Grampians National Park here in Victoria. With nothing to spend money on it was the perfect place to save up for my "dream". I had had this dream since my parents took me overseas at 13. I was an only child and feel very privileged to have been at that age. I left Aussie soil, at the age of 21, and didn't return until nearly 3 years later.
I really want to win the Lottery so I can take my boys overseas to all the places I (and Hubs) have been. We met in "The Lake District" in the UK (both on "working holidays") and we both look back on those times with such appreciation. I hope my boys will have the same love of travelling that we do.
Before we had children we decided to save up like crazy and have one last trip in 2000. Little did we know that when we took off around the globe there was a little person tagging along for the ride!!! Not many kids can say they have been around the world! We visited the USA, England and .....
We had both been before (seperately) and knew that we had to see it together. Hubs celebrated his 30th birthday on the island of Ios. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have enough money to be able to do it when ever you wanted to? Right now, it's kids, a home and work...maybe...one day....
The world really is an amazing place.
