They say money can’t buy happiness, and I suppose that’s true. Money can’t buy family, or genuine friendship. Money can’t buy a Saturday afternoon spent laughing or the beautiful moment the sun rises in the morning. There a lot of beautiful things in this world that money can’t buy.
You can’t buy happiness, this is true. But you can buy a plane ticket. A plane ticket can transport you from the mundane of your everyday life to anywhere in the world you fancy. A plane ticket can buy you once-in-a-lifetime experiences. A plane ticket can buy you a day spent watching elephants roam the Savannah, or a cruise down the Nile. A plane ticket can buy you a view of the Northern lights, or a day spent on a tropical white sand beach. A plane ticket can buy you one perfect evening in a new and exciting city.
With that one little piece of paper, you can go anywhere and do anything. The possibilities are endless. A plane ticket can take the worries of your routine, and your job, and your responsibilities, and it can transport them far, far away. A plane ticket can buy you a moment of awe-inspiring bliss.
No, money can’t buy you happiness. That can only come from within. But what money can buy you is a plane ticket, and that’s nearly the same thing.
