Ain't No Rollin' Stone

I've got a thing for old stones.

(No, not Jagger and the rest of his rollin' geriatric mates)

Specifically, really old stones as in ancient ruins. I don't really know why, maybe because I always have this weird feeling that in a past life, I was an inhabitant of one of the ancient civilisations. Too far-fetched? I agree. Others think I've gone extremely loopy on the very rare occasions that I dare to mention this.

This also probably explains my fascination with archaeology, and why Harrison Ford is my favourite actor by virtue of him being Indy Jones. Yes, I know; that's fiction.

Nevertheless, my personal wish and dream is to travel to places like Petra, the Pyramids, Machu Picchu, the Parthenon or whatever's left of it, and the likes. Realistically, some places may be out of reach, some may be possible, but I'll keep all of them on my wishlist. I probably should map out a route to cover the Old Roman Empire and seek out the ruins or structures wherever possible.

Having said all that, I know I have yet to do a proper and thorough homework on this little dream of mine. I'm just reading up a little bit at a time.

Anyhow, regardless whether I had a past life or not, I would love to travel to these ancient sites, and see them stones with my own eyes.

That experience would rock my world.


  1. Actually, I think Harrison Ford's an old stone too.

  2. LT - haha, of course he's aged lah by now. During his swashbuckling early years as Indy and Han Solo, he was very very handsome lah :)
