5 places I want to see before I die

Friday, September 19, 2014

The world is full of so many places and if I had an endless budget (I don't), I'd love to just travel all over. Sure, I'd have to work on a few of my fears: planes, spiders, bugs and sharks (among others) BUT I'm confident I could work through that or at least cope with it. 

Here's 5 places I really want to go/see but remember... my REAL list of places I'd like to go is much much longer ;)

5 Places I want to see before I die:
  1. Canada's West/ West Coast - I've technically been 'out west' a few times. I used to spend summers in Edmonton when my dad lived there when I was younger. I even went on a camping trip with a friend and her family and camped around BC. My recollection of these travels is minimal and every time one of my friends posts a picture of the mountains or the beautiful coast, it confirms why this is my #1.


  2. New York City - Maybe it's my love of fashion or my previous obsession with everything Sex in the City or maybe it's because everyone I know that's been to New York City seems to develop a special place in their heart just for New York. Whatever the reason, I need to get there.


  3. Italy - It's no surprise I love wine. I also love food. Those two things alone make Italy a desirable destination for me. Then there's the whole history, the art and the architecture. I don't pretend to be a history buff by any stretch, but I like pretty stuff and sometimes I like to learn stuff ;)


  4. Germany - I just happened to be born in Germany so it only seems appropriate to go back. My dad was stationed there while my mom was pregnant so it's where I spent the first two years of my life. I'd love to go back and explore. PLUS, I also happen to enjoy beer and I hear it's kind of a big deal there!


  5. Greece - Well, who doesn't love Greek food?! Tatziki anyone? That's Greek, right? My REAL reason for wanting to go to Greece is purely for aesthetics. The pictures I've seen are absolutely stunning, how could I not want to go there?


Now you know some places I'd like to go... Where have you been that you'd recommend? Where do you feel you NEED to go some day???

  3. I "swam with the sharks" in Hawaii a few years ago - you reminded me that I need to blog about that! If you ever come to the West coast - we need to meet :). I LOVE New York City, and really want to go back again. So cool that you were born in Germany!

  8. I've actually been to all of the places on your list. I grew up only 40 miles from Banff - still a place I consider one of the most beautiful on earth. I'd recommend heading to a Greek Island as your first stop though ... Great list!

  10. Fun idea for a post, love seeing other peoples' travel ideas! I think I need to do the same thing myself. Really excited to get my Canada on and explore Victoria in December.

  11. Wow! I didn't know you were born in Germany. This is why I love these type of things because we all get to know one another more. We should think about being traveling/blogging buddies in the future (all of us).
