|Herb and Anthony and a Hawaiian Sunset|
Each of them is leaving this week from Saskatoon for at least a week alone on whatever fantasy trip he would like to make for a week. There are no limits on destination or activity. Neither was required to go anywhere during the week.
The only rule was that neither of them was to tell the other what they were doing for the week.
At the end of the week they are meeting at one of their favourite hotels, The Negresco, in Nice, France.
On the planning Anthony said:
I finally called upon the side of my brain that likes to make lists and graphs and organizational charts. Before becoming a writer, I did have a decade long career as a Chartered Accountant after all. I developed a strategy. I distilled my varied wants and desires into four criteria I wanted my experience to have. After much researching, I found that no where no how no way could I get all four at once. But I could find different combinations of three of the four. (Maybe I’ll find the elusive all-four-criteria-experience for my 100th birthday).
Free spirit that he is, Anthony has decided to give readers of his blog clues on where he is going on his trip.
Yesterday he posted his first clue on his blog.
It was not difficult to determine where he was at that time. I am sure all mystery bloggers and readers could figure out that clue.
Today he has the second clue. It is much more difficult. Here is a link to his blog.
It is going to be an exciting week following the clues.
The whole concept is so romantic and exciting and creative and just wonderful.
Anthony is encouraging readers of the blog to make a mental week long trip if they cannot take an actual trip. I know it has set my imagination thinking about what I would do if I had a week to do whatever I wanted.
