Not A Wanderer

Daily Prompt: The Wanderer
Tell about the top five places you’ve always wanted to visit. Go!

What a coincidence! Today I am flying to Boston to meet my daughter, after a gap of almost a year. I am so looking forward to seeing her, and the new baby. Her flight from Paris will be reaching one and a half hour earlier than mine. Hopefully, she will be through custom and immigration, by the time I reach.

My daughter has lined up so many places in and around Boston for me to see. She and her husband are the real wanderers. They love to see new places, and keep on moving, from place to place.

When they are in one place, they are always planning on outings to different nearby locations. I call them nomads. At a whim, they sell everything, or give away their belongings, and move.

I would love to see Malayasia, Japan and Turkey. Someone has to be on my back to make me go anywhere. I am not a wanderer by nature. I have to get motivated by someone to visit new places.

The Travels I Have Been

Daily Prompt: On The Road
If you could pause real life and spend time living with a family, anywhere in the world, where would you go?



Going on Travels. Where would I go?
It needs thinking. Let me wear my specs. Do I see a light? Showing me a way………….

I have been to England and Scotland. Seen France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. I have visited Russia, China and Australia. Seen Eygpt, Morocco and South Africa. I have been to Mexico, Brazil and Peru. Saw remnants of the lost Aztec Civilization.




The very southern tip of South America I have seen. I have braved the freezing temperatures of Antartica.

Loved the vistas unfolding before me. The grandeur of various Palaces unfurled in front of my eyes. The Museums showing their relics of the Past.


The travels I have been, seen vistas to believe
Places so gorgeous, scenes to perceive
Been there and come back, much to my reprieve
Enjoyed what was there, have memories to retrieve

I have loved all the places I saw. How?
Through Documentries, while sitting in the comfort of my HOME. No need to go elsewhere. Going through the hassle of visas, airfares and spending exorbitant amounts of money. Why should I subject myself to all that misery?

Now seriously let me THINK? I think I would love to visit Japan. I will have to learn a little bit of Japanese. I think my grey cells don’t work the way they did aeons ago. I better prepare myself for the disappointment I have to face and have a go at a National Geographic Documentory.
