I have no idea when I caught the travel bug, I may have been born with it, so I am constantly fantasizing about traveling. I look up flights and airbnb places for trips I won’t be doing. I have a travel tumblr in which I curate travel eye candy for all them 9000+ wanderlusters that follow it, and I often wish I was somewhere else, not because I am unhappy where I am but just because I love traveling and visiting new places and even returning to old places that I love. I love airports and the way they make me feel, it’s a strange thing.
So, of course I would like to see so, so many places, but I’ve narrowed it to just 5 in this whole wide world for this post. Here they are:
1. Venice, Italy
I don’t think I have to explain why I want to go to Venice as it is one the most magical places in the world. Given my love for Italy, I just know how much I would love Venice. It would be the perfect spot for the honeymoon we never had.
2. New Zealand/Australia
I know these are two complete different countries and maybe they shouldn’t count as one but my reasons for both are the same.
These countries are so far away yet they don’t seem too different to America (like Asia is). One of the reasons I really want to go is because I’ve never met an Australian or New Zealander I didn’t like, quite the opposite; I feel like they are a pretty laid-back bunch overall and I love that. I also know there is a ton of natural beauty there that I would love to immerse myself in.
I’ve heard that there is no place like Alaska. You can imagine how it would be but once you see it, it creates such a powerful feeling; the natural vastness, the way of living… It really peaks my curiosity.
4. Patagonia, Chile/Argentina
I have never visited my Hispanic neighbors in South America, and though there are many places I’d like to visit, Patagonia is in the top. Patagonia is a region comprised of both Chilean and Argentinian territories including a big part of the Andes, deserts, and both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans on the coasts. I’d specifically love to visit Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America. Once again, the natural vast beauty int his area is something I’d like to experience.
5. Tokyo, Japan
I have an interest in Japan. I like the people and I love the food. I would love, love to experience some authentic, underground, Japanese food, and I would love to go during Sakura season. I can just feel how happy inside the pink colored rows of trees would make me feel. I’d like to submerge myself in local culture, tea ceremonies, markets, and temples.
I am always in the mood for traveling (caught the travel bug long time ago and can’t seem to be cured), but after writing this and looking at tons of stunning images of these places I’m really in the mood for traveling.What are your top 5 places you want to visit?
