Until now, I pretty much had some sort of idea as to where I am going with my life. At the moment I am pretty clueless. There is so much I want to achieve.

These are the things I want to achieve.

  1. Learn Spanish and read some of the books I have kept in my to do list. These are the books that are translated to English, but I haven’t read them, because I want to read it in the language it was written. Mario Vargas-Llosa¬†: “La Casa Verde”, Benito Perez-Galdos: “Fortunata y Jacinta”, Miguel Delibes: “Cinco Horas con Mario” are few of the books I really want to read.
  2. Sail around the world for a year. This is something I plan to do when my youngest leaves home in 4 years. I have yet to figure out the financial implications of this particular dream, but like all my dreams, I intend to jump head first and then figure out how to get out ..(I know zilch about sailing shouldn’t stop me from achieving this)
  3. Buy a beach house. (Where? I still don’t know)
  4. Write.¬† My dreams have always been a bit unusual compared to everyone else. I like money for the comfort it provides and for being able to travel. But at the same time, I don’t want to be a slave for someone and work Monday to Friday and make money. My idea of the life I want to live is to get up each morning listening to the birds, go for my usual 10 km walk, come home, spend time doing the things I like to do (read, write and cook). I feel it is time I seriously consider how to get around to do the things I really want to do..

So onwards I march.. I know I will eventually get to my destination.. even with all the set backs..
