It has never happened that someone heard in the news about a lottery winner and did not instantly start imagining what they would do with that amount of money were they to be the lucky ones to earn it. Surprisingly, however, it is not rare to hear about lottery winners that by poor judgment lose everything, including what they had before winning an absurd amount of money they never imagined earning. The purpose of this article is to point out five things that you afford were you to be the one to win the lottery.
A Trip around the World
Who hasn’t thought about doing this before? There is literally no country in the world that you could not visit as long as you were willing to go through getting Visas for over one hundred countries. This could be done in your preferred method of transport. In fact, you could travel by every single means of transport possible. By helicopter in Europe, train in Asia, bus in Africa. You decide.
Spend a Month in the Best Resorts
Regarding accommodation, there would surely be enough money to avoid having to spend the night at bay packers’ hostels in which guests have to share the bathroom. A resort in the West Indies is a popular choice. Just keep in mind that by the end of this experience it would probably be wise to check your current balance without committing to another “once in a lifetime” experience.
A Flat in Any Country of Your Choice
During this trip, it would not be a bad idea to look for a flat in the country that you liked the most. There is absolutely no country in the world in which you would not be able to afford a flat. The dimensions and luxury would surely vary depending on the nation targeted. Nevertheless, if planned properly, more than one flat could even be considered.
The Best Car in Your Town
Do you know how brands such as Lexus, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lincoln, and Porsche have always seemed out of reach? Well, they would not be anymore. The expression on the face of your friends, family, and colleagues would be priceless when they saw you cruising in your brand new car.
University Degree for Your Children
Having looked at some of the most selfish things that could possibly be done with the lottery money, it is probably a good idea to think about your dear ones too. One clear way of supporting them would be to offer to pay the tuition fees for a degree at a university of their desire. It might not scream “I am rich” as buying a motorcycle does, but it is something they would be grateful for during their whole lives.
Although some of the things listed are not as extravagant as you would expect, they still have a very significant effect on your wallet and, arguably a much more meaningful return for yourself and the ones that you care for.
