BEC: My Wildest Dream!

This is my first entry for Blog English Club‘s English Friday. Blog English Club is a community initiated by Indonesian bloggers Dani, Ryan and Nita. Please read their blogs for full information on this initiative. Starting this week I’ll post an article following the weekly theme every Friday. In my blog, the posts will be tagged “Blog English Club”.

So, this week’s theme is “Your Wildest Dream!” and let me tell you a little secret…. πŸ˜‰

Hahaha not really a secret. Well, my wildest dream is to spend months traveling on the road. The longest I’ve spent traveling was 20 days in 2013 for my US Trip. Most of the time was not spent on the road though, since I spent it mostly in Orange County. I have also spent some days on the road – 10 days to be exact, during my England road trip back in 2009. But that’s about it.

There are three alternatives for this dream:

1) Mainland USA road trip with a Travel Trailer

Me and the boyfriend has set a bucket list for us. Perhaps I’ll share more about it on this blog but one of the items on that list is we will visit every states in the USA. Currently we have visited 2! Still a long way to go hahaha… Anyway, what better way to do it than a road trip? πŸ˜€ This will be crazy though, as we have to spare months or even a year to travel which means we can’t have 9-5 jobs and leave our (future) house behind. We also need a lot of money! Haha. But imagine the adventure that we will have! Thinking about it as I’m writing this gives me chills already.

2) Asia – Europe road trip including a journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway

I can’t remember when I first found out about this railway. But then last year I met a friend’s friend who told me about his journey when he took the Trans-Siberian Railway and I was amazed! He did tell me that he does not want to do it again though, because some days on the train could be depressing (I guess that’s because he was traveling solo and can’t speak the local languages?). But, he told me that the experience was worth it. It’s a once in a lifetime experience!Β  Then there’s this amazing journey by Nathan Ashker which I found on Instagram, #AsiatoAmerica. He traveled from Asia to America without taking a plane! How interesting! Those sort of stories really inspired me to do the same.. so I came up with this wild dream: One day I will travel to Asia to Europe using Trans-Siberian Railway. Have I done something to make it a reality? Hmmm not really. Later in life, I hope.

3) Europe road trip

Now that I’ve mentioned the first two alternatives, this last one looks like the most doable, right? Hehe. I’ve heard stories of my friends doing a Europe road trip. It does not have to be the whole Europe though, some parts of it will do. Since I haven’t been to Eastern Europe, I think I will aim to cover that part of Europe. If I ever got to do the Trans-Siberian Railway trip, this would definitely be doable! Once I reach Moscow, I would continue the trip from Eastern Europe then finish in London…. with a little bit of detour to Bournemouth, of course. (Hahaha still have to include England on the trip! :D)

So now you know. My wildest dream. What’s yours? πŸ™‚

  1. They’re both amazing places to see. I backpacked to those continents in college. Uber fun! LOL. OC always has interesting stories to tell. Looking forward to yours then.

    1. Waaahh seru banget Fe, we also talked about it.. itu kayaknya paling realistis bagi kita soalnya doi kan tinggalnya di Cali.. dibanding nyebrang ke East Coast hehehe. Tapi kurang dari 10 hari pasti seru banget sih ya! eh kamu pernah nulis soal ini nggak di blogmu? mau bacaa… πŸ™‚

  2. Wow, a lot of people have expressed their interest in the Trans Siberian railway trip! Haha πŸ˜€ To me, it does look like such a goddamn long journey just on the train! Lol πŸ˜† .

      1. Lol, true. I also want to try but maybe just part of it. But does that count too? πŸ˜› Because I think one aspect that makes the trip epic is the length πŸ˜› .

  3. Imagining road trip through USA must be fun! Oh how I envy your adventurous spirit Christa… May both of you could make this dream happen! πŸ˜€
