No, I don’t plan to take a vacation anytime soon. Too many irons in the fire! But in my quiet moments, I do dream about taking some time away from my desk. Lately, I’ve been wishing for something different…not a cruise, not a road trip…I’m wishing for something impossible.
For my dream vacation, I’d love to travel to some faraway place in the universe—yeah, a galaxy far, far away. Here’s what it would look like…
My ship moors between two galaxies I can see in the distance. Pretty clouds of space dust and gas float by, appearing aimless. When we are back en-route, the captain calls everyone to the observation deck to view the latest black hole, forming in the distance. Aboard the ship, there’s plenty to do, playing on a Star Trek-style holodeck, heading to the pleasure lounge where you can hook up with your choice(s) of handsome bots. I love spending time in special meeting rooms with air and conditions set so that I can sit across from an alien from another planet to speak to him through a Universal Translator device—oh, the questions I would have for him! Unlike my mostly pleasure-seeking shipmates, I also prefer the captain’s tour, exploring belowdecks to see how everything works, sitting in a spectator’s chair on the bridge with the crew…
Sound like fun?
How about a voyage to a hotel at the bottom of the Mariana Trench? A trip into an alternate universe? How about something that is possible, but unattainable for you like a round-the-world cruise (Lord, how I’d love that!)? Where would you want to stop?
Okay, I’ve set this up for you.
What is your impossible dream vacation?
