For Love or Money?

Thursday, 2 February, 2012

What’s the one thing that you would spend money (that you didn’t really have to spare) on?

I think, for me, it boils down to two contenders: concerts and travel.

I love going to concerts and am still not tired of the novelty of seeing bands that I have loved forever LIVE! Having grown up waaaay down south, where very few bands, expect those with a giant budget, dare to go, I missed out on so many shows I would’ve loved to have seen, and so now I’m making up for lost time and cram in as many live shows as I possibly can, whether the budget really allows it or not 🙂 )There’s something so magical about the energy of the crowd and the almost surreal quality of hearing something done live that you’ve listening to hundreds and hundreds of times on a recording.

Then there’s travel. I would never, ever say ‘no!’ to exploring new places, seeing new sights, meeting new people, savouring new foods, and experiencing different cultures. Not only does it fuel my imagination and allow me to explore one of my passions, photography, it also often changes my thinking or gives me new insights or allows me to understand someone better.
