If I had the opportunity to spend a year living in a foreign country, I’d choose Australia. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia, but a crippling fear of flying coupled with having no money or passport makes it kind of moot, but if I was able to get my hands on high-quality drugs to knock me out for the whole flight, plus the money to go and get a passport, I’d love to. I’d want to see all the big cities; Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin. I’d want to walk up to someone and say, “throw another shrimp on the barbie,” and I’d want to go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. More than that, I want to flush a toilet and see if the water really does go counterclockwise down the drain rather than clockwise like it does here. I’d also like to see snow on my birthday, as I was born in June, and that’s their winter.
If Australia wasn’t possible for whatever reason, I’d love to go to Scotland. I’ve talked about why before, but it just seems like a fun place to go, plus there’s a ton of history there, and I’m a history buff. I love to learn new things when I go somewhere, particularly if something important or interesting occurred there many moons before.
