If I Won The Lottery I'd... {#Blogtober14}

This is the kind of thing which highly unlikely to happen for one simple reason, I don't play the lottery. I've just never been able to get into risking my money, that being said, it's fun to think of things I would do if I won!

1. Pay off all my debt, it's not that much but I hate any sort of debt

2. Purchase a house, maybe two. One in Johannesburg and one in Cape Town. Property in Cape Town is really expensive so I would definitely need the lottery money to help me out.

3. Invest in a cause like Make A Wish or Operation Smile

4.Fund my wannabe Sports/Law firm

5. I saw an article about 1000+ coffees and I love the idea of being able to have coffee with all my Facebook friends. It really got me thinking, if we're friends on Facebook, whether we met while waiting for our next flight in Dubai or we met at a bar five years ago or (my favourite) we were on a Contiki trip in London and Paris together - if we could not sit down to have a coffee (or more) together we shouldn't be friends in real life or facebook. I am absolutely in love with this idea and you shouldn't be surprised if I actually take this up sometime in the future. It would cost a shitload of money because I have a lot of friends in South Africa but many more around the world starting in Kenya to Morocco to Kansas to Rio De Janeiro to Granada to the South of France.. you get the idea right? There are all corners of the earth crawling with friends I've made over my 27 years and I would love to see them again.
 I would take my family with me to some of the places because we haven't traveled together overseas and I think every family should do that and I would go watch soccer matches everywhere I went.

So who would you visit just to have coffee with, anywhere in the world?

Today I'm linking up with Helene and Taylor for #Blogtober14 and with Kathy for confessions!

If I won the lottery I would most definitely pay off all my debt first, followed by my parents' & any my brother has. I would then take a year to just travel the world.

I'd totally pay of debt first too. Not anything super cool, but being debt free, and helping my family be debt free would be amazing.

All the debt would be gone! That's the day I am looking forward to!

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

I'd have a beach house and a condo in the city. And I'd definitely pay off all my debt too!

Kasey At The Bat said...

I love that you would watch soccer matches everywhere you went! I'd definitely be that kind of traveler too, insisting on seeing really any sporting event everywhere I went!

I love seeing this post throughout blogland and the general consensus I agree is to travel!

Diana @ wonderfully made. said...

What a fun list! I love that you're equal parts practical (#1) and equal parts fun (#5). Loved the part about the coffee!! :)

I love Operation Smile! Pete paid for a surgery for my birthday gift one year... AWESOME!

Kenzie Smith said...

What a neat idea about the coffee dates! I would love to be able to afford to do something like that.

Diana DeGzz said...

I like the coffee idea.

Meghan Silva said...

What great plans... woah if I won the lotto I would buy a sail boat or cruiser (why not) sail around the world and obviously give to charity, spoil the family and have a Kardashian style bloggers retreat with all my favorite bloggers. Because damn we work hard hahaha.
