Reality award!

reality-blog-awardI am very flattered to be awarded the REALITY blogger award by The Habitual Runaway’s blog. It’s lovely to know people are reading and enjoying armchair traveling and planning with me here.

To accept the award, I must answer 5 questions and then nominate 5 blogs I enjoy reading.

1. If you could change something, what would you change?
I would invent the Transporter, like they have in Star Trek. Flying and slogging through airports is such a chore. I always say I love to travel, I just hate getting there.

2. If you could relive one day, when would that be?
I guess that could be the day Graham and I got engaged, May 30, 2006. We spent much of the day in Blackpool, about an hour’s drive from Manchester under sunny skies, also a rarity for most of my visits overseas. We went up the Blackpool Tower, had fish and chips by the seaside, went to a Doctor Who exhibit and later, in the airport hotel that night, he asked me to marry him (I was flying home to Canada the next morning). Eee it were a Grand Day!

3. What one thing really scares you?
Losing someone I love is awful. Thinking that I will eventually lose others scares me.

4. What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it?
Keeping back it to a travel theme, I’d love to fly around the world. If I ever get to go to Australia and New Zealand, I will head there from one direction and head home from the other. Will I be able to do it? Hard to say. I’ll probably have to wait until I retire to have the time to do it and possible the money as well.

5. If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?
Are there things about myself I would change? Yes. But would I want to be anyone else for a day? I am not so sure I would unless it was a lottery winner ;)

Here’s five blogs I like to read. I guess I can’t nominate the Habitual Runaway back though I do enjoy reading her adventures!
