It’s a Sunday. A very extremely hot Sunday. Dad’s off for another official trip to Srinagar (the place where our family would have been right now, had it not been for my ditching friends! :/).

So anyhow, I was watching Discovery’s Travel and Living channel, where they were showing a trip to Antarctica. Obvious, since it’s in my bucket list, I was more and more excited to see the presenter embark his journey to the 5th largest continent in the world.

As their ship cruised through the beautiful sapphire colored Atlantic loaded with sheets of ice, the amazingly untouched nature’s creativity boasted of its presence everywhere. The whales, yawning seals, boulders of ice floating on the ocean, looked like the scene straight out of the postcards.

Is it possible for anyone to visit it, I thought? Even if I turn 60, and even if it takes all my life’s saving, I promised myself, I am going to visit this place for sure.

People have so many dream destinations. Well, my award definitely goes to this one!

Thus began my fanatic search for ship or planes. Obvious, currently it’s beyond my budget, but I can’t wait for the day when I’ll be on deck, with the special someone, watching my ship cut through small pieces of ice to make place for our safe landing.

PS: Aurora would be probably serve as a cherry on top! 😛

My Dream Destination

Everyone has few things in their minds to do before they die. Some are just obnoxious, some making our lives worth living. Mine are crazy, adventurous, and lame.

Here’s the list:

  • Visit an active volcano (which contains actual red hot boiling magma).
  • See a tornado.
  • Feel an earthquake (which till now has happened only twice).
  • Visit either or both the poles.
  • WATCH AURORA (this should have come first).
  • Around the world trip (in more than 80 days)!
  • Go in Space.
  • See the Milky Way from Earth (Second one).
  • Watch snowfall.
  • If not complete, partial trip to Mt. Everest.
  • Sleep in an actual haunted place.
  • Write a book.
  • Catch a ghost on tape or picture.
  • Get stranded in France, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland.
  • Communicate with Aliens (if they exist).
  • Get abducted by one.
  • Have my own small company.
  • Make my parents proud of me.
  • Own a McDonald.
  • Fridge with never ending Lindts and Goldkenns and Freys.
  • Get myself placed in Hall of Fame (Guinness or Hollywood or Madame Tussads 😛 or even Le Louvre! )
  • Visit a glacier.
  • Children of Bodom and Skrillex  Excision (my latest dubstep hottie) gig!
  • Own a mansion at a place where I can see the galaxy and aurora.
  • Squeeze a white rat (obvious in a lovey dovey manner) and check whether their eyes actually pop out like they show in cartoons.
  • Own a shop where it’s just handmade papers, stamps, sequins, strings and cards.
