Where does your world end?

I received this interesting ad from a friend (thanks ET) 🙂 It may be an ad for a travel agency or something, but it really made me wonder where does my world ends?

where does your world ends

The physical borders of my world are kind of fixed. Let’s say Egypt (that’s my only homeland), or specifically Cairo (I haven’t lived in Alex, Sinai or the Upper Egypt 🙂 ), or more specifically some districts of Cairo (Giza, Maadi, Mohandessin). wow. How limited is my world ! I keep trying on expanding it either physically or virtually, here I am talking about visiting places, knowing people, seeing the world from different angles behind my viewfinder or just grabing a book (literature ba`a 3ala history 3ala travel,,,,,,). I am talking about the external borders, the internal borders of self discovery is a whole different issue 🙂 .

Let’s talk seriously. I discovered that “Discovering the World” is not just a slogan for me. I was thinking about my aims in life and I discovered that discovering the world is on my top priorities. When I was young I thought that this is just some kids dream (just like when a boy says that he wants to be a pilot or something), but what if this is REALLY what I want to do in life!! I can’t imagine what to do! what career will be suitable for me? journalist? diplomat? having a private busniess? mmm,,,, what will be the reaction of my family? What if I liked a static personality? What kind of life will I lead with family commitments?

Shakli keda I will dream and dream and dream and then wake up one day thinking that all these thoughts were just a vision or an illusion. We 3ala ra`i el massal, que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future is not ours to see, que sera sera 😀

  1. Reblogged this on Kaleidoscope and commented:

    I was reading this post, and I found myself amazed on how dreams do come true! 🙂
    It is exactly 5 years ago, and I visited London, Geneva, New York, Washington, Singapore, Phuket, Amman, Rome, Florence, Istanbul. AND lived in Albania, roaming some of its cities as well!

  2. I couldn’t say it any better. Travelling around the world is on the top of my priorities too. May I ask how you got to travel to so many places? Because I was starting to think it’s a childish dream too.
