Upcoming trip: it’s classified

I saw this meme on Instagram the other day, it shows former President Barack Obama. At the top of the image, a text reads:

When they ask me if I have any trips planned for 2024

What Mr. Obama says in that original press conference (in this order) is:

  • Not really
  • Maybe
  • It’s classified

Here’s a GIF, not the actual meme I saw but you’ll get the idea:

I find this incredibly funny, not sure why πŸ˜‚ Perhaps because it’s a perfect portrait of what I usually do. I tend not to share my secret big plans too far in advance 🀐 First, because I just don’t like, want, or have any need to brag about it. Second, I don’t want to jinx it in any capacity 🀞

I remember when I had a trip to South Korea booked back in 2020. We all know what happened in 2020 😷🦠 , so yeah I had to cancel it, and ask for partial refunds, it was a mess 😞 I’m not saying something like this could happen again but there are things outside of our control 😒

Anyway, to your burning question… Yes, I have a trip planned for 2024 already. It’s big, it’s going to be amazing, and I’m very excited 🀩 It’s happening in spring, so shy of three-months away.

Call it a Christmas gift, call it a mandatory yearly pilgrimage, or call it not spending 200€ every weekend going out clubbing and whatnot πŸ•ΊπŸΈ

When friends ask me how can I possibly do this, or they tell me “I’m so lucky” I always think: I don’t have kids, I don’t wear expensive clothes, and I barely go out (and when I do it’s just to grab a drink or two with friends)… All these allow me to save my income and blow it on a trip across the globe. Unless you’re loaded you have to pick your battles. You can’t have everything in this life πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
Not that I need to justify myself to anyone but I find it amusing that others think they couldn’t do it if they wanted to πŸ™ƒ

Want to try and guess where am I traveling to? Leave a comment! πŸ’¬
