If money were no object, and money were not a problem, I would like to buy a boat. That’s sort of my dream, one day, I will have enough money and I will buy a boat. There’s something about when I’m on the water in a boat I just feel completely relaxed, yeah, and definitely, that’s what I’d buy if I had the money. In terms of anything smaller, or something that I could buy these days, maybe a plane ticket to another country cause I really like to travel.
