We all have plans and dreams we want to accomplish. Some are easy short-term goals, while some are strenuous, long-term goals. One of my goals while attending a university was to study abroad. That day has finally arrived where my dream of going overseas for a semester came true. It took a lot of hard work and planning, but I couldn’t be happier that I followed through with the plan.
What would happen though if you didn’t have any time to plan for something? What if you received let’s say $2,000 tomorrow and only had 24 hours to spend it? How would you spend it? You don’t really have a lot of time to think about it or plan anything out, but you can sure do a lot with $2,000.
The first thing I would do? Buy a plane ticket to Scotland, a country I’ve always wanted to visit. Two main reasons why Scotland fascinates me is because of its raw beautiful nature and its rich historical castles. I would check out the capital, Edinburgh, and hike up to Arthur’s seat to see a view of the whole city, as well as see all the places that attributed to the creation of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, and personally I think House Stark is the best house. I am an adventurous and outgoing person who loves to hike and experience the outdoors.
Scotland’s natural beauty and land is a site I wouldn’t want to miss, especially Loch Ness. I also know that Rugby is a well-known sport in Scotland and would hope that I could attend a game while in Scotland. At this point I probably used up a lot of my $2,000 budget from travel expenses and ticket purchases, but I would sure enough to leave some room for traditional Scottish meals and drinks.
The best part of this trip is the people I meet along the way because a lot of the time they will inspire you in way that they will never know.
