Have you ever wondered what you would do if you won the lottery? I’m sure you have at some point! Never say never…
This week I was asked by Lottoland to imagine what I would do if I were the lucky winner, and it was fun to do so. Here it’s what I came up with.
Travel all around the world
OBVIOUSLY. I mean, this is a travel blog and I love traveling, the first thing I’d do if I won the lottery would be buying a ticket to a far-flung destination! And then another, and then another…
EuroMillions has jackpots that are up to £130 million, can you imagine how many plane tickets I could buy with that sum?? I’d probably travel for a year or so, mixing hostels so I can keep meeting people, with luxurious resorts where I can get pampered together with my boyfriend.
I want to be adventurous in Africa, relaxed in Oceania, and improve my Spanish in South America. I still have so much to see in the world, and I intend to see it all!
Buy a house
If I suddenly had millions in my bank account, I could definitely buy a house. The problem is, where?
In fact, no matter how much I traveled, I’m still far from deciding where I would like to live long-term. I love London and I visit every year, and the fact that is awfully expensive wouldn’t be a problem if I won the lottery, but I’m not sure if I could ever get used to the rain and the gray sky. Maybe somewhere tropical?
I guess I’ll have to travel some more time before deciding, which brings me back to the previous point 🙂
Stop doing any cleaning
Oh yes, it’s one of my biggest dreams. I’m definitely not one that enjoys cleaning and cooking, and I would be a terrible housewife. I’d love to be able to afford someone who can come and clean the house, get some ready meals, and help me [shudder] ironing, while I just relax with a cup of coffee and my laptop.
Pamper myself a bit more
How many times have you seen a dress you loved but then looked at the price tag and decided you couldn’t afford it? Me, many. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a huge shopper and I get bored at the mall after 1 hour and a half (my boyfriend is quite happy about it!). However, I’d love to be able to buy something without giving it too much thought.
And massages! I love massages, when I head to SouthEast Asia I have something like a massage a day. Here? Not doable, as spas and massages are so expensive. That, plus going to the hair stylist more often, are definitely on my list.
Invest more in this blog
I could never see myself doing nothing all day long. I’m hyperactive, and I’ve put so many hours of work into this blog that I consider it my baby. So, no matter if I won the lottery, I would keep focusing on it. Sure, not having the pressure of making a full-time salary on it, would make things easier and less stressful. Also, I would hire a virtual assistant who would help me with the necessary but boring tasks (for example, the sharing threads, uggh!).
I’d also hire an SEO expert that could help me grow the traffic and make the site faster.
What about you? What dreams would come true if you won the lottery?
