A girl and her kayak

“What would you do if you had $20,000?”

That was the question someone asked me in a job interview.

Unable to come up with a witty answer, I muttered something along the lines of,  “I’d probably go on a cruise to a faraway island…or something…”

But guess what? I don’t need $20,000.  I can do it with $400 and a kayak.

Yep, after my advice to myself to spend more time and money on the things I like, I ended up buying a kayak and already I’ve been out on the ocean dreaming away things to do.

I’ve got a lot of plans for my kayak and I.

  • First, I’m going to get strong enough so that I can paddle all the way to tiny islands and have epic adventures.
  • I plan to go on kayaking tours and meet lots of adventurous people like me.
  • And I’m hoping that I’ll get to kayak under the stars someday.

Maybe then, in a few years time I can upgrade to a real boat and take friends and family off to faraway islands. We could even party on the boat when it’s my birthday like the way they do it in the movies.

And I’ll probably name my boat New Year’s Girl, after this blog, to remind myself that this is where it all started.

Already, I feel like my kayak and I will go a long way.
