It's always nice to dream

Darren came out on Friday night. At some point in the evening, he told me that I should plan a European vacation. ...that he can join me on. "You're good at that," he said, regarding my planning skills. We decided on Russia and the Czech Republic.

We're all talk.

I think.

The kid loves to travel, I'll give him that. He relishes being out of his environment. He gave me the entire "you're young, this is the only time you'll be able to do this" lecture.

I've always wanted to go to Russia.

For the rest of the weekend, I bounced the idea around in my head. What it would be like traveling with Darren. How much it would cost. When I could go. What we would do. Silly things. Daydreams.

The life that I live in my head is so much grander than the one that I live here in reality.

I visited Bulgaria as a child and my late cousin earned her Masters degree in Russian. To study there for her was quite amazing. I hope you have the chance to go. Take it!

If it makes you feel better, I think for most people, the lives we live in our heads are much grander than our real lives.

That's probably only NOT true for people who have no imaginations. And that would be boring!

You should ABSOLUTELY go to Prague in the Czech Republic! (I speak from experience) And Russia! (I speak from no expeience, but a love expeiencing new things - and Russia would DEF be a new thing!)

Do it! Do it!! :)
