This week’s challenge from Tara at Thin Spiral Notebook is Adventure. Click on the link to play along.
My response to the challenge is not fiction, but it fits so well that I thought
I would post it. Hope that doesn’t offend others
who play along with these challenges. So..
She was about to be 75. Surprised at this, she decided it was time for an adventure. Oh, she had had many adventures, had travelled extensively with her late husband and since his death, on her own. But were those trips real adventures.? She thought not.
She decided on Florence. It was a place she had visited before and wanted to spend a few months there. Knowing nobody there and little of the language she packed and set off.
What fun she had and how glad she was she did this before she thought “I’m too old”
Author’s Note. If you want to see and read more of this real life adventure go to Florence
