I'm feeling the itch again...to travel.
It has been a long time since the bug has struck me. I was wondering where to go. I have been so out of touch, out of my element,
I miss climbing mountains. I miss the beach.
Sometimes, I dislike the scorching effect of the sun. You see, when dear God decided to shower fairness amongst us people, I was probably hidden somewhere else. While growing up, I felt so insecure about my dark skin. I studied in a Chinese school where fair skin abound. Anyway, that was high school.
College was quite good for me. I grew confident and contented. I didn't care what other people would say about me and my skin.
Because of the I-don't-care-attitude I have come to adopt, I was not scared to engage in climbing mountains. In fact, I welcomed the warmth of the sun in my already dark skin while trekking.
On the other hand, I don't consider myself a beach gal. Not because of the typical effect of the sun but more of the reality that I could not swim.
But then, I realized that I could still enjoy the beach. Frolicking in the water, reading a good book under the shade of a tree, napping in the sand, etc.
Anyway, I am longing to wander around with my family and friends.
I am hoping you can tell me your favorite place and why me and my family should check it out, too.
