Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).
I want to see where Nelson Mandela spent such a great portion of his life. I want to touch the walls and look out the window. I can not do this simply because I can not set foot on the ferry. I’ve tried and failed miserably.
Fear Factor – give me the fast cars, jumping from helicopters and eating bugs any day. Put me in chains under water – not even for a million dollars!
Scenes from Titanic and I Shouldn’t Be Alive flood my mind’s eye. My chest closes up and the hysterics slowly creep up my throat. It’s quite a strange sensation. It feels like a huge spider slowly makes his way up my throat, inch by inch, taunting me, ready to strike at any second. I’ve tried to fight it and feel so silly afterwards, telling myself that everything will be OK, stop over reacting. My body, basic instinct, however won’t budge. I am thus the one you will find in the shade at the beach instead of in the water.
So, let’s say that there are no rip-tides or rumbling waves; no hidden rock formations or glaciers; no hurricanes or tsunami’s, no sharks or jelly fish; what would I do?
I would buy a yacht and sail the Seven Seas. I would swim in warm oceans. I would investigate shipwrecks and dive coral reefs. I would visit every harbour and discover new ports. I would dedicate my life to poetry and stories of distant shores.
