Have you Ever had to Move your Goalposts?

Question of the Week

This week, Welcome to My World asks the question: “If there were no limitations, which country would you most like to visit?” 

No question for me. I would love, love, love, to visit Montenegro. Hands up if you don’t know where that is! When I first heard the name, I had no clue.

And I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it in conversation to anyone without being asked, “Where is that?”

So let me start off with a brief geography lesson for you. One of the first countries I learned to identify was Italy. My mother taught me that “Great big Italy kicked poor little Sicily into the middle of the Mediterranean Sea”!

Isn’t that clever?

In the process, I learned to find Italy, Sicily, and the Mediterranean Sea.

Little did I know at that tender age I would one day learn about a small, rugged country a third the size of Switzerland, called Montenegro which lies opposite the boot of Italy.

Why do I want to visit there? Because it is the current home of my daughter and son-in-law, who have shared photographs of some of its incredible beauty over the past years.

Sadly, this is one goal that I am not likely to ever achieve for a host of reasons. That’s a pity, as my life is governed by goals, most of which I achieve. But yesterday, I decided to move a set of goalposts.
