Here is my contribution to this week’s Share Your World
If aliens landed on earth tomorrow and offered to take you home with them, would you go? (remember this is SYW, they are friendly aliens)
Well – I am an Adventurous Retiree so of course I would go. My mother taught me never to accept lifts from strangers but there are exceptions to every rule.
I think I’d be forgiven for going off with Aliens from a distant planet. I assume I’d be tele-ported which would be great fun. Imagine the blog I could write about my adventures on my return!
I would also arrange for ‘The Earl’ to go.
How tall are you? Are you satisfied with your height?
I am 165 cm (5 feet 5 inches) tall. I have always been perfectly happy with my height. The only time I wish I was a little taller is when my grandchildren dwarf me!
Do you think you could live without your smartphone (or other technology item) for 24 hours?
Yes I could but why would I want to! I adore my devices and find them extremely useful in my daily life. Techno travel is for me! My books travel on my devices. My field guides travel on my devices so I need them even when I am in the middle of the bush. However, as I come from the pre-digital age I know how to read a real book and I don’t mind being unavailable for a week or two. I can amuse myself without games on gadgets and there’s no greater pleasure than having a real conversation while sipping a glass of wine in front of the camp fire.
I smiled a lot this last week as I had all my children and grandchildren around me as we celebrated our oldest grandson’s coming of age.
Yesterday I smiled because I got my Travel Wallet for England and Europe sorted at the bank in Hermanus, Earl had his annual heart check-up, and all is looking good and Lauren got to catch up with her cousin Peta-Ann when she met us all in Stanford for lunch.
