In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Study Abroad.”
While there was some back and forth in my mind, I have no doubt that if I were asked to study abroad for a year, I would choose PEI. I am a huge fan of L.M Montgomery and her stories of Anne that take place on PEI.
There were many times in my childhood while reading Anne of Green Gables, that I would sit there and daydream and imagine what it would be like if I was one of her friends on the island.
So if I had to go anywhere, it would be PEI. I would live in a little cabin/cottage with a garden outside to enjoy when the weather was warm. Maybe there would be an apple orchard nearby, or maybe the shores of PEI wouldn’t be too far a walk. I would take in all the sights around me, and let those old childhood dreams feel like memories.
Of course on nice days I would take my notebook and pen down to the shore, near a lighthouse, and I would write. Nothing as good as L.M’s Anne, but something worth reading just once..perhaps.
