#Trust30 Prompt: If we live truly, we shall see truly. – Emerson Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?
I admit it. I am a peregrine. My bucket list of visited places includes a Number One for each continent–including Antarctica. In North America I want to visit Great Slave Lake; South America, Machu Picchu; Asia, Kyzyl; Australia, Uluru; Africa, Victoria Falls; Europe, Too Many To Count; and Antarctica, well, The South Pole. But my first choice is just that because it carries a task with it. I want to visit Hadrian’s Wall in order to transverse Britain by foot. My plan is to lead a Reformation tour in 2012 or 2013 and hold back enough income to take two weeks for this project. This will also mean getting in better shape than I am in presently. This summer I am building up my walking time and I am watching what, and how much, I eat. I hope to lose 55 pounds in thirteen months to pull all of this off. And, of course, I want to write about it, so I will continue my habit of writing every day. My second task is to be accomplished a year after Hadrian’s Wall: To spend a month barging through Europe.
