Looking through Daily Post I noticed a prompt that piqued my interest.
Describe your ultimate escape plan (and tell us what you’re escaping from).
I think there are many things to escape from. Especially in modern society where you can forget about anything but the fast pace of job, friends, family, repeat.
I have many escape plans and I execute them yearly. Though I’m not sure what I’m escaping from.. perhaps worry and concern, but really when you are far away that concern only grows larger.
I travel as a way to live. I grew up in a mishmash of modern and traditional; to be specific, Singapore.
I traveled extensively as a child and have discussed with my mum quite a few times feeling not truly settled anywhere but when I am traveling. I think my escape plan is more an escape into experiencing. I don’t think I could ever survive living monotonously; life is there to be lived.
My ultimate escape plan would be moving to England for two years on a work visa. Something that I in fact intend to execute in either 2016 or 2017, oh how far away that seems. But first I have to finish my degree and complete my masters…
Australia is a beautiful amazing place but it does not have the travel opportunities I thrive on. I feel most at home in an airport; perhaps a very telling fact. I suppose my ultimate escape plan would be escaping borders; escaping monotony.
