Travel Roulette


For a while I’ve wanted to show up at the airport with no plans, no luggage and no ticket and ask the agent to book me a flight somewhere.  I think it would be a fun experiment.  Travel roulette.  So a few days ago, I sent this text to four of my friends:

To my surprise, three of them took me up on it.  We’ll all be at the airport tomorrow morning trying to snag a last-minute seat somewhere interesting.  I’ll try to post a few pictures or videos to the Intentional Retirement Facebook page to let you know how it’s going.  Maybe it will be fun.  Maybe it will be a colossal mistake.  Either way it will be memorable.

Enjoy your weekend!  And remember.  Life is short.  Be intentional.

    Compulsive is unhealthy,
    But spontaneous is always!

    Super cool. Love serendipity. So where did you go? Find a decent “agent” at the airport?

    Oh my gosh, that sounds so fun, scary, crazy, stimulating, exhilarating, too many adjectives! Can’t wait to hear how it went! You’re kind of living a dream and I’m living vicariously through your journey! ~ Lynn
