    Great Adventure

    I had never thought of this before, but now that I read the idea, it would be a pretty amazing adventure.  How would you ensure you wouldn't know where you are going?  You would have to have someone set it up for you.  If anyone wants to fly me somewhere for a...

    Next Flight !

    One can still do this. Just go to the airport (dont look at the flight schedule board) . Go up to one of the airline counters and say to the attendant "I'd like a round trip ticket on the next flight out on your airline". Now you could preface it with thr restriction of "domestic...

    Pure Fascination!

    I've always been fascinated by airplanes, mainly because I've always seen them as a vehicle to explore great new places and meet interesting people. I took some flying lessons years ago but never got my license, maybe that was a blessing in disguise as I would be quite dangerous...

    Sometimes I just want to start all over again.

    Have a new adventure and a new life. I have strong urges to hitchhike to anywhere and stay on the planes and busses after they got to where I was initially going. Is this the call of the void? Or something else?

    Not Sure If You Can Still Do This

    But I would like to go to the airport and walk up and ask for a seat on the next flight out.   Then go explore the city I land at for the weekend and come home Sunday night.  I hope I remember my passport.

    At One Time I Was Adventurous And Did Travel

    Starting New

    Let's Just Go ....

    I think it would be fun to just get up one morning, pack a suitcase, grab my passport, and go to the airport - look up at the board and pick a place - wouldn't matter where - just somewhere warm that has a nice bar  :) could camp out there for a week, and then hop another...

    Fly Away

    That is a great idea! It sucks that you can't just take a plane to anywhere without preparation. You need tickets, maybe a visa, the flights are often full, it's pretty expensive and I haven;t yet thought of security measures becoming tighter every few months, preventing people...

    How Crazy Would That Be?

    I want to feel the rush of the unknown. I want to test myself- can I adapt to this? Often I regard myself as more of a machine than a person. I measure my own efficiency by what I am capable of. If I could hop on an airplane and just wing it, just completely improvise a trip...

    Was what my dad and I used to chant while spinning the globe, then letting my finger settle somewhere. I wish I could just hop on a plane or a ship, and just go somewhere.
