If there were no limits

I fell down the Google Image rabbit hole today. I'm not quite sure how but I ended up pouring through graphic art, real images of beautiful places all over the world and simply incredible sketches (isn't the internet a marvelous place?!)

It was the strangest feeling looking through these images.... I felt like my mind was opening and there were no limits. I felt like I could go to all of these magical places, I could dream of being inside this graphic art, of stories I could write set amongst the scenes laid out in front of my eyes.

If there were no limits in life, if you could spend all your time doing whatever you wanted and going wherever you wanted, what would you do?

I've got a little bit of a dream. I'm trying to achieve it, even though there a hundreds of limits. I'd love to travel all over the world. To see the big cities and small villages, the lakes, oceans and mountains. I'd love to immerse myself in all different kinds of cultures, see different animals and experience new ways of life. I'd love to volunteer in a place that could really use my help. I'd love to move back to America (amazingly this is one of the hardest pursuits on my list! Dang American visas are hard to get!), I'd love to live in Cali, in a house in La Jolla (or near there) and raise my family and I'd love to write my stories and run a cake/high tea shop that overlooks La Jolla cove.... Just a little dream of mine.

What would you do if there were no limits?

Note: By limits I mean financial constraints, time constraints and other various barriers or constraints.


  1. In terms of travel, I would love to visit Scandinavia. And I would love to take a roadtrip to every US State, and actually *visit* each State--not just stay overnight somewhere in a hotel.

    But these are just one-time things. Longer term, I would love to have a second home in Ireland so I and my family could visit every year, spend time with my UK family, take in the gorgeous scenery, etc.

    1. Oooh Scandinavia - that's very exciting! I'd love to take a roadtrip like that too, I managed to do a small section but it wasn't enough!!

      Is Ireland where you're from? So beautiful there, I can't wait to go and explore Ireland next year! That would be a great place for a second house

    2. My Mum's from N. Ireland, so I'm half-Irish--Scots-Irish to be precise. :) On my Dad's side I'm part Welsh and part English, so I'm truly British. :D

    3. Wowee! You're as British as they come! That's awesome! You don't find anything like that very often in NZ, I'm a quarter Welsh, a quarter French and a half Kiwi so i'm quite the mix :D
