Title: Across the Vastness of Ocean and Space
Snippet: What would you say if you were offered a trip of a lifetime? Would you go? Of course, you’d want more information about this wonderful expedition before accepting the ticket. The trip would be unlike any you’ve known in the past. You’d travel a great distance; months would pass before you reached your destination.
The trip is not without danger, so your safety cannot be guaranteed. You might fall ill or the vessel in which you travel may be destroyed. Space is at a premium, so you’d live for weeks, if not months, in a small area.
You’d have to pack only what you need because you’d have to carry it the entire way. It’s important to take tools that will help you survive when you reach your new home; sentimental items will take up valuable room, so they’re best left behind.
