Jumper

So last Thursday was the infamous Valentine's Day. I like to refer to it as Single's Awareness Day, however. :) Even though I did not have a Valentine of my own, it was a really great night. My best friend and I decided to go out to the movies where we ended up seeing Jumper. For those of you who do not know, the movie is basically about a guy that can 'transport' himself anywhere he wants to go... instantly. I really enjoyed the movie (science fiction/action/adventure movies are my thing), but even more so the movie got me thinking. It led me to the following question; the question that I have been asking everyone I know for the past few days.

If you could go anywhere (on Earth)... where would you go? Money, health, time, all that is taken care of. You just have to decide where you want to go. Where would it be? I'm a girl who wants to travel and have done very little of it so far in my life. This is a tough hypothetical question for me, because I literally want to go everywhere! God has created such a beautiful world for us to live on, and I want to experience and see every part of it. After thinking about this question for almost a week I think I have decided on...
England. :) More specifically the Lake District. I have seen pictures and it looks like an absolutely breathtaking place. I may be going there this summer (for the Oxford C.S. Lewis course) so I may have to think of another place that I would go to. :)

Please comment on this blog and let me know where you would go to. Dream big!

You didn't choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and
produce fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you
whatever you ask for, using my name.

- John 15:16 (NLT)

Hi Mary,

Fellow blogger Juana here. Okay, you've got me thinking about your question, but it is going to take me a while to think of a good place to go. I've got so many places! :) I'll get back to you soon when I have my answer.

I know exactly what you mean! :) I kept changing it from Antarctica, to Egypt, to China, Australia.... my list could go on and on. It is so fun to think about!

Hey Mary,

Ok, I think I finally chose a place: Greece. I chose it for its Mediterranean feel. I like that type of food and the beautiful architecture of the homes. The beaches aren't so bad either :) My other choices were Puerto Rico, Italy, and England. Like you mentioned in your post, you want to travel, but haven't done much of it. I've traveled in the States a lot (I just got back from Texas!), but not out of the country. I'd love to go on a cruise and fly around the world. Come to think of it, that "Jumper" power wouldn't be so bad. But sometimes getting somewhere is half the fun.

Greece... yes I would love to go there, too! I totally agree with you that a lot of the fun is in actually getting to the destination. Last April, my best friend and I went on a ten day road trip to Memphis, Austin, Albuquerque, and Denver. The best times we had (other than Graceland!) were in the car. :)

Cool! I love to travel. It can sometimes be hectic, but it sure does create good memories.
