plans, plans, plans

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Now that we are financially capable and free from parental restraints, you’d think it’s easier for us, a group of friends, to make travel plans. It’s actually the opposite. It’s more difficult now than when we were still in high school. Back then, plans to have sleepovers are made without any fuss and finalized in a split-second. Preoccupied with only a few concerns in life, it was quite easy for us to organize a get together.

Hop on a plane and spend a few days in Boracay – that’s the plan. But it’s like so many forces are at work to make it merely a dream and less of a plan. The fact that we now reside in different countries is not the only issue to contend with. Factor in visa requirements, family obligations, incongruent schedules and different priorities, and the more the plan turns into wishful thinking. The only thing that holds the plan together and makes it attainable is our strong desire to, once again, be with each other.
