Have you ever planned to do something for a particular reason & when it was all over you got something completely different out of it or maybe way more then you had originally planned.
Maybe you have the same garden I have and you planted shale and spray it with round up so the weeds won’t grow through, then buy some miracle a beautiful tulip seed manages to grow and blossom. Now I’ve got 100% more out of my shale garden then I had originally planned!
Ok, maybe not the most inspiring example, thou I’ve got a better one. Maybe you have a travel dream or destination. Perhaps you want to go to say Costa Rica for spring break just to relax & while you are their you see baby sea turtles hatching and you weep like a small child that just dropped his ice cream cone. And on that same sea turtle adventure you are swapping chit chat & Kleenex with Mr or Ms fresh tan and a couple of Pina Coladas. You chat, you sip, you dance, you fall in love and you get married on that same beach a year later.
I know I know I can feel a little bit of puke in my mouth right now too, thou I’m sure it would make a hell of a commercial for a middle aged singles resort.
Well every time I travel and I recommend you travel more then not, I sort of have a really loose idea of what I think I’m going their for. For the African adventure I had planned to go and see the culture, meet up with old friends and hopefully get some nifty shoots of African wildlife eating or sleeping or something.
Well it turns out I now love elephants! To see this massive creature up close in it’s own habitat eating, swimming, defending it’s territory, smashing things, being little and cute will BLOW your mind!
Likely the best tour I’ve been on in my life was entirely by chance. We bumped into a family we’d crossed paths with in Zimbabwe and they recommended us to Mr Cherry Lewis, that’s totally his name too!
Ever headed off on holiday with one intention and ended up getting something else out of it? We’d love to hear about it. Post your comments below.
