, I'm so awed by the things you've done!! What adventures, indeed!!
And flying lessons, bethin
I'm afraid I'd be such a chicken!!!
You go, girl!!
I traveled to Paris twice, that was an adventure for me, lol!
Especially the second time around, when I flew separately from my sil (I flew from LA, she flew from SF).
When I landed, I intended to cross the terminal to meet her at her disembarkation (is that a word???) area.
Then I found out her airline landed planes at an entirely different terminal ------ THREE MILES AWAY from where I was.
Thank you, Charles De Gaulle airport!!
I took a taxi over (I'm sure I paid dearly for it, but it was certainly worth it to me!) and got to the gate just as she rounded the corner to the waiting area!
When I turned 30, I decided to do something I'd always wanted to do: take riding lessons.
And I did, and loved it.
Ended up owning a horse for about two years.
Other than those two things, I haven't had many adventures.
Oh yeah, there was the Italian man who tried to pick me up in Paris (I was 44 at the time).
He didn't speak much English, I didn't speak ANY Italian, and not much French.
My sil and I had a good giggle about it later.
Uhhh, no, I did NOT go anywhere with him, nor did I meet him for dinner, at his invitation (pasta at his place).
Once my kids are independent, dh and I will prolly find some adventures to experience.
