It seems like I've run out of dreams. However awkward that may sound, I've noticed a shortage of big plans that eventually turn into reality. So I needed to borrow a dream, an easily approachable and doable project I could rave about in details or sound crazy for generations. Well I'm half-joking, a little sleep deprived to be totally responsible for my ramblings yet the exact proportions of owning a dream and participating in one is absolutely happening. A good idea is undeniably on my list of hot topics and whatever else that gets my heart racing. You mention adventure, my facial expressions will navigate the conversation, you say travel and we're friends for life (it's just a slight warning ;). As a girl who has never ventured outside the UE, a two-week trip to India takes time to make sense and it is the reason why the application form has sat on my desktop for a week encouraging more questions conceived from the ones answered promptly by the organizing body with the time difference delay. My mind is already taking lessons in pottery and gasping at the riot of colour of Holi Festival marking the journey. It is a part of the plan for girls wanting more than just being tourists, they wait to smell, see and feel everything morbidly. Is it embarrassingly late to take on such adventure? Will it mark a beginning of new friendships, more journeys ahead and above all a signature experience enveloping my current motto? It's been a while since I planned a big adventure, I'm still convinced a road trip to Portugal will happen sooner than soon, but India? Far, unknown land of people I meet on regular basis at work, get offers of the best insurance deals over the phone from them and see their children playing happily in my neighbourhood. The itinerary and meeting a person I think I know but I'm sure I like plays a huge role in me considering taking part. It will also motivate me to a disturbing degree to complete many other projects within time leading to departure. I crave motivation, whatever it takes to push me out of my comfort zone will never get over-analyzed. I'll proceed while I'm totally, unnaturally hypnotized by the whole idea.
