30 people, 1 question: Where would you like to wake up tomorrow?

We have all longed to be somewhere at some point in our lives or maybe we just want to be where we currently are, who knows? I was curious to know what people were thinking and so, on a sunny summer afternoon, I took to the streets of Ottawa to randomly ask 30 people, 1 question: ‘Where would you like

to wake up tomorrow?’ Read their answers below

Ashley: I’d like to wake up in Costa Rica. I went there recently and it was great. The people, the food, the culture is amazing. So yeah, Costa Rica.

Franklin: I’d like to wake up in Congo. I grew up my whole life in South Africa but my parents are originally from Congo. I’ll like to go there and see what it’s like.

Matt: Italy! Yes, Italy. I am Canadian but my parents live there. It would be nice to go visiting. And of course, it is beautiful.

Angelie: I am from Haiti, where there are very beautiful islands so it’s only normal to be drawn to beaches and sun too. I’ll like to go to Jamaica. I have a lot of Jamaican friends and I feel like I owe them the pleasure of visiting their country. I am sure it is beautiful too.

Andreah: New York City. I’ll love to wake up in New York. I am not really into beaches and sand and all that stuff. I’m all about the money and New York is that place!IMG_3108

Allen: I will like to go to Africa, no where specific, but I want to go where my ancestors are from. You know? Back to the roots.

Jazzy: I’d love to wake up in Kenya. From pictures, I can tell it’s beautiful and will be very different from what I am familiar with. I am from England and so you can imagine how much of a different experience it will be for me.

Valeria: I want to go to New York because most of my favorite YouTubers live there. It will be nice to meet them in person, especially D-live.

IMG_3133

Pete: I’d really like to wake up in Vancouver. It’s like a little paradise and I have never been there before so why not?

IMG_3112

Britney: I love skating and Iceland is the place to be for that. I will like to skate all over Iceland. That will be a dream come true.

Ope: I’ll love to wake up in Italy because it’s beautiful and I want to go to the Vatican City. It will be awesome!

IMG_3064

David: I want to wake up in Rideau Center, Ottawa because it is very beautiful and it is not far from where I am right now, I can walk there.

IMG_3134

Beff: I want to wake up in Sydney, Australia. Even though it’s really far, it is beautiful and they speak English there too. English is the only language I know.

IMG_3114

Shannon: I’ll like to wake up in South Korea. I think it is a beautiful place.

IMG_3115

Robin: I’ll love to wake up in Vancouver. I have family there and I think it is absolutely stunning.

IMG_3135

Michel: Thailand, definitely. I love traveling and Thailand looks dreamy and very picture-esque.

IMG_3117

Myriam: Oh. I’ll love to wake up in Bosnia. Where do I start? It is very beautiful, the culture is amazing. I love all the history there. It was once a war area so you can see very lovely buildings with the bullet holes still showing. I find that very fascinating.

IMG_3118

Christina: Definitely Banff, Alberta. Have you seen that place? It looks heavenly. Who wouldn’t want to wake up there?

IMG_3119

Patrick: I’d love to wake up in Jamaica because I am from Jamaica. That’s home.

IMG_3060

Sammy: Toronto. I am sorry if that is not the answer you were looking for because it is so close by but I really love the city and I rarely get to go there so yeah, Toronto.

IMG_3136

Bradley: Oh The Bahamas. Have you seen the ladies there? I’ll love to go there for the hot chics, only the hot chics!

IMG_3058

Johnson: South Africa. That’s where I am from. It reminds me of easier times.

IMG_3131

Faisal: I don’t want to wake up anywhere. I just want to wake up beside my wife everyday in Montreal.

IMG_3130

Harley: I’d love to wake up in Sydney. It is beautiful, I love the accent there and the hot weather.

IMG_3129

John Paul: I’d love to wake up in New Zealand. It’s in the middle of the earth and also, because of Lord of the Rings.

IMG_3059

Pepe: Definitely Dubai. I think it is a very well organized place. Everything is in proper order so it’s Dubai for me.

IMG_3063

Alex: Cape Town. I have lived there before and it is extremely beautiful and eye-catching.

IMG_3124

Daniel: Thousands Islands in Ontario. It’s really beautiful.

IMG_3128

Marouan: Quebec because home is where the heart is!

IMG_3127

Betrand: Paris. It is a french speaking place and I like how they dress up there. It is very lovely and it will be a dream to go there.


So, thirty people have just revealed where they would like to wake up but what about you? If you could pick one place to wake up tomorrow, where would that be? I’ll love to hear from you.

It starts with a dream, add faith and it becomes a belief. Add action and it becomes a part of life.

Love,

  1. Great concept We hardly know what to expect from you. Good job.
    To answer, i will like to wake up in Egypt, Cairo.

  2. Been waiting for this for so long. I loved reading all the answers and it was a pleasure meeting you and your friend. I hope we keep in touch.

    Robin S.

    1. It was great meeting you too Robin, and thanks for taking time out to talk to us on a sunny, busy afternoon. I really appreciate. And yes to keeping in touch!

  3. Still marvelled by all the responses, I guess you never really know what attracts a person to a place. Nice work well done!!

    1. Thanks so much Miss Simi. I appreciate all your contributions on my blog. And yes to Santorini, it is at the very top of my travel list. Hopefully we get to go there soon!

  4. This is very awesome. Great to see where everyone wants to go. In the end, we all want to be happy. I think I will be happy in Barbados but equally happy where I am now. Excited for the future. Happy September THEUFUOMA

    1. “In the end, we all want to be happy” You couldn’t be more apt, Akinwale. Barbados for the sun, beach, sand and palm trees? Why not! Go for it. 🙂 Happy September to you too. Thank you.

  5. So Ufuoma, I found this post, a little late, I know! I love the concept, the question and the people and their honesty. I actually got goose-bumps, but then I was also listening to Kiss Daniel’s “Duro” as I did. So it compounded the bumps. Lol!
    This guy got me, “Faisal: I don’t want to wake up anywhere. I just want to wake up beside my wife everyday in Montreal.”
    That was beautiful.

  6. Amsterdam in Netherlands definitely!
    I have seen lovely sites and pictures of the city. Most especially the canals and the rivers and the landscape. The people are lovely, welcoming and accommodating. The place is home for beautiful canals, architectures and places looks so beautiful. Sure, I will spend my honeymoon there!
