corner view, "My dream"

When I started traveling in the 70's I have a dream, in this order: To travel across Latin America to live for a while in the U.S.A, to take a ride on the Transiberian, to have a walk on the Great Wall of China, and end up living Spain with my own family, in one of th0se small villages that appeal so much we, New World people.
Well, I can say I know pretty well Latin America, I've been living for a while in the USA, I have a house in a small village even if I don't live there all year round...But the most important of my dreams became true not in Spain but in Italy: I have a family of my own...The Transiberian and the Great Wall can wait for a while!

Sweet Dreams! And it's nice to have them all fulfilled except for one which "can wait a while"..... gives you something to dream about still!

What great dreams, Juanita. I have quite a list of things that I want to do, although it seems to grow with passing time, so much that I can't keep up.
Transiberian and The Great Wall are achievable, and I hope you will get to do them and tell us about it :)

Wonderful! I'm envious of your travel. I wish I would have done it more during my 20's, but was so caught up in education. Now that I'm almost 40, I see that travel and actually experiencing the places and people make a better education AND makes the education more memorable! I studied in my little apartment and barely left the house due to studying.....hmmmmm, doesn't make that much sense.

When my husband and I got married we were close to 30 and realized that we needed to travel the world a bit. So we had a very simple and small wedding and used our bulk of money to travel Europe for a few weeks. We went to Belgium, Switzerland and Germany. It was wonderful! We have a small savings account now for overseas travel when the girls get bigger. Italy and Spain will be on the itinerary for sure!
