Someday Soon…

I was reading this thread on Reddit about a 46 year old man who feels he has wasted his life and never pursued his dreams… his post and the many replies inspired me to write this;

I don’t really think I have the time to travel this year, plus I am skint- I can’t afford to travel right now. I should get a summer job, try to pay down my student loan and overdraft.

My friend and I took the opportunity to indulge when our tour stopped in Naples and we headed to Brandi’s, on Salita S. Anna di Palazzo, just a few minutes away from The Piazza Plebiscito.
