Going on a real virtual journey

Monday, November 23, 2015

I was talking with a friend of mine the other day about places I would really like to see but don't have the time or money for right now. When talking about it with my husband I had mentioned how wonderful it would be to take a couple of months off from work and slowly drive across the the country to see Time Square all lite up at night and see a broadway show. Then today I was looking through my goals on here and thought maybe there could be a fun and different way to go through the process of sort of getting there while still getting goals done on here. So here is what I came up with.
I found out that from my doorstep to one of the theatres in Time Square it is 2,917 miles. I'm going to go for a virtual walk every day counting my miles to a broadway show. Everyday I will put in my mileage find out where I would be and look up some small random fact about the location that I would have made it to. I'm not going to put a time limit on this since I do have an office job that seems to double as an infirmary, and transportation problems at times but I kind of do hope that I get to NYC virtually by 11/20/16. That will be my 47th birthday. I'll be able to track pretty accurately too since my husband bought me the fitbit I have been wanting for several months.
If you would like to join me on my journey I would love to have you along.

Hugs and happiness all!!!

    My youngest son hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in 2003. He was young, no wife or kids, no student debt, so he could take the time to do it. He was shocked at the number of old people doing the hike. For most people, the time is only available after retirement.

    Fantastic idea. You might find cities etc. in YouTube as you take your walk. Sights to see. For example.

    Have fun, and let us know how it goes!
