I have a dream...
I have a dream and many songs to sing. Tomorrow is the big day. The day I’ve been waiting for since the first time I saw The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants back in 2005. And then again when I saw Mamma Mia in 2008. Greece! Maybe it’s silly that the reason I want to visit a place is because of a few movies. But hey, that’s a reason I visited Salzburg and I had a wonderful time there. Maybe it’s silly to want to visit a place because I saw Alexis Bledel fall in love on a beautiful Greek island with an even more beautiful Greek boy and I hope that will happen for me too. I want to run all over the island singing and dancing to ABBA songs. Maybe if I’m lucky some locals will pop their heads into the alley and sing back up vocals for me. Even if these reasons are silly this has been my dream for almost 15 years. And tomorrow I will be blessed to set foot in one of the oldest cities in the world. Regardless of if I fall in love, or if I get to traipse around singing ABBA songs, I’ll get to see the beginnings of civilization, experience centuries of culture, and enjoy the beauty that is Greece. I hope by the time I return home I will have found a love for olives, feta cheese, and ouzo (things I currently do not enjoy). I also hope that I return with a tan and a few stories to tell. Dreams are fun aren’t they?
