Traveling Pen-Pals – Are You Still In Touch With Them?

I remember when I was a child, I first traveled on a plane with Royal Airlines which is no longer in service back in mid 90’s, I remember traveling to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico when I met new friends on the plane and I got their phone numbers and address, and I kept in touch with them for 3-4 years and then we drifted apart, and then I remember going to Florida, in Daytona Beach, and I had gone there for 2 weeks for Christmas and New Years, and I met great people from England, United Kingdom and we had seen each other and hung out with each other quite a bit and then we ended up getting each others address, and phone numbers, but we only sent each other mail and became pen-pals and sent pictures to each other. We still keep in touch since 1997. As the years went by, and my travels increased, I ended up meeting so many different people in the world and I still keep in touch with people I met from Russia, England, Armenia, Vancouver, in other parts of Ontario, Canada where I met them on my trips, and it was so awesome. We have each other on Facebook and we have each others e-mails and its such a great thing.

When you travel around the world, you meet so many different people with different views and lifestyles on life, and the way people see things and different opinions, and its so good. Travel and People experience has been part of my life since day one. I love being social and interactive with so many people. When I travel, I tend to bring up subjects and meet random people when I am at resorts, cruise ships, planes and airports. This last trip I did go on however, it was quite different, we all spoke and kept bumping into each other and met some really cool folks, but I ended up not getting any  phone numbers, e-mails, addresses. I don’t know what happened to me this time, but I had written a review on trip advisor online and one of them spotted me and my pictures, and she wrote to me and said Hi remember me from the hotel? I said Oh yes I do, She said I am sorry we didn’t get each others contacts, but thank goodness you wrote something on our hotel we stood at or else I would have never found you. You had told me your name, but I wouldn’t have known how to spell it to begin with, so she said I am glad I checked. So at least I am keeping in touch with one of the people I met now.

I had always carried around a small notebook and pen with me in my little purse around the hotel in case I met someone interesting, nice and great, but I never got to asking them. I was just so excited to be away and enjoy the hotel and everything else. There are so many people you meet, some you see again, some you don’t get to see again. I miss my friends in United Kingdom, Russia, and other places. I want to see them again and soon. Hopefully. Have you had a pen-pal? Do you still keep in touch with people whom you have traveled with or have met while you have been abroad? Have you kept your bonds strong with your travel pals?

Would love to hear from you.

All the best!

I Keep Having Dreams On Being On Talk Shows

For the past few months, I have had these dreams where I have been on so many talk shows such as “The Talk” “Ellen DeGeneres” Rachael Ray” “Marilyn Denis”. Those dreams keep on re-occurring. A lot of the times now, my dreams are coming true. Whenever I dream on something while I am asleep,  It usually comes true within one or two weeks of me having it, but this one not yet, but I know it will happen sooner or later. Now the story of my dreams are about getting on these shows to make a difference in the world, how to keep preventing bullying, among other important things, as well as discussing my blog. All these things came into the picture and I did not want to wake up from my dream. It was amazing and how many peoples hearts I touched in it, and how many people around the globe watched the shows and were really moved by it and how happy and how nice people were and all the feedback I had received on the aftermath of when I went on these shows. It has been several months now, that these dreams keep popping up while I sleep and now its becoming more frequent. I am always dreaming on the same things over and over again. It is pretty nice. I hope one day it comes true soon. I want to do this for everyone, I want to get out there, raise more awareness, I want to do a lot. I do not just want to sit here and and just keep writing, I want to actually go out there and do the best of my ability to make bullying gone and to come up with ways to do so.

Now in my dreams when I go onto “The Talk”, I had spoken to Ayesha Tyler, Sharon Osborne, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Julie Chen, and they were all so wonderful to me and I did not want to leave that dream I had, and then a couple of weeks later I remember getting on “Ellen DeGeneres” “Rachael Ray” “Marilyn Denis” and they all were different and so many audiences viewed the shows and it was just so pleasant. I just hope I can one day be noticed by them and make those dreams a reality that I have when I sleep.

All these happen when I sleep, not before I go to bed imagining it. I am hoping to go to at least one of them.

May all your dreams and wishes come true to everyone.
