Land ahoy!

Patience is a virtue (that we’re all working on). Of late, I’ve been making slow, albeit unintended progress, in some areas where patience is required.

Like my travel plans, for instance.

I was going through my old computer yesterday, deleting unwanted files and transferring the desirable ones onto my Passport, when I came across a folder unequivocally called ‘My Travels’.

Written towards the end of 2013 (in the spirit of New Year’s resolutions) was a list of worldwide travels that I was aiming to have done and dusted by the end of 2014.

I sort of giggled at the global scale of those travels and at the fact that 95% of them still have to be accomplished – but in light of the 5% locations I have managed to see, I understood the following:

  • Time is hopefully not running out, so there will be a chance to see all the locations I’m interested in over the next years; there’s no need to cram the entire globe into 365 days – it doesn’t do it any justice and it would be immensely expensive.
  • It’s best to progress this “whirlwind tour” with one location at a time rather than all at once, which is highly unfeasible anyway :).
  • Which is why I’ve booked a 5-day getaway to Naples at the start of July.
  • My “to-do” list is ripe with places in and around Naples that I want to see (such as the Amalfi Coast and Capri Island, Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum) and I haven’t been as excited about going on holiday since Greece 2009 and Barcelona 2014.

I shall post some updates and photos in due course.
