The Unforgettable Moment: Chasing Dreams and Living Them

Updated: Nov 20

Imagine the moment when a long-awaited dream turns into reality. The excitement courses through your veins, and anticipation fills the air. The feeling of awe that is almost too surreal to comprehend. This is the essence of traveling - the chance to witness something you've imagined and longed for, and when it finally happens, the emotional rush is indescribable. One such breathtaking experience for me is standing before the iconic masterpiece, Big Ben, in the heart of London.

The Dream Awakens:

For me, the owner of Gotta Luv Travel, Big Ben was more than just a renowned landmark; it was a symbol of my enthusiasm and an object of fascination of mine for several decades. I had seen countless images of the clock tower, but nothing could compare to the magic of experiencing it in person. The anticipation of finally gazing upon Big Ben awakened a flood of emotions that caught me completely off guard..

A Dream Come True:

Exiting the tube station, the vibrant city unfolded around me, but my focus remained on one thing: catching a glimpse of Big Ben (honestly, my family was tired of hearing me saying the only thing I wanted to see was BB). Little did I know that the experience awaiting me would surpass even my wildest dreams.

An Enchanting Encounter:

The very moment we exited the tube station, Big Ben struck the hour. Goosebumps spread across my arms while a wave of emotion surged within me. Lit up in the night sky, as I looked up at Big Ben tears of joy welled up in my eyes as I realized I was living a dream I had nurtured for so long. The sound of each strike echoed, reverberating with a sense of history and significance. It was in that moment that I truly understood the power of travel and my dreams.

Beyond Expectations:

I had imagined the moment countless times, but the reality surpassed every expectation. Big Ben stood tall, a symbol of resilience and timeless elegance. The surrounding atmosphere carried a sense of wonder, as if paying homage to the dreams of millions who had stood before this majestic icon.

I realize that Big Ben may not be a “thing” for some people, but it was one of my “things” (trust me there are many more). This is just my way of helping you see that travel isn’t just getting somewhere, it is putting all of our senses together and getting something indescribable from it. Something that will resonate with you for years to come (in my case this was 26 years ago).

If you have a dream destination or sight that has held your fascination, I encourage you to pursue it with unwavering determination. The experience may leave you breathless, just as it did for me with Big Ben.

The first encounter with something you've always dreamed of seeing in person is a life-altering moment. For me, the journey towards Big Ben was a testament to the power of dreams and the incredible experiences that travel can offer. The surreal feeling, the goosebumps, and the happy tears were all part of a beautiful tapestry created by my passion for exploration. Let this serve as a reminder that chasing your dreams and embracing the unknown can lead to experiences that surpass even your wildest imagination.
