As I may have expressed a tiny bit in some of my blog posts I am experiencing such a travel lust these days, it’s insane. This has got me thinking both about places I have been and want to go back to and about the places that I’ve never been, but that are sort of on my ‘travel bucket list’. I love day dreaming about travelling and going on adventures, so I thought I’d let you daydream along with me in this post. Since I’ve never been to any of these places and don’t have any pictures of my own I thought I’d put together 5 different ‘postcards’ that I made out of pictures from Google. Let’s go:
I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland. I don’t know what it is, but there’s just this drive inside of me that longs to this place. The strong nature forces makes me think of it as such a free place and I would love to see all the natural forces in action. Like the geysirs and the blue lagoon. But mostly, I just really want to go on a trip with Icelandic horses. I’ve ridden Icelandic horses before in Norway, and they are such strong and independent creatures. To combine a horseback trip with such beautiful nature is just an absolute dream.
I feel lik everyone has to visit Rome at least one time in their lives. And I have actually never even been to Italy. The thing that I’m most attracted to is the history of the city. Just imagine how it was living in Ancient Rome? I’m also so in love with the architecture of European cities and I long to walk in the small, busy, paved streets of Rome.
Have you guys ever heard of this place? Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. It’s basically neighbors with the North Pole. You may have heard rumors that we have polar bears walking in the streets in Norway. We don’t really. Except here. And that’s the only bit that scares me a bit about visiting, haha. But again I’m drawn by the nature forces and beauty of this place. A lot of my family members have actually lived here as well, so I have heard so many stories and really want to see it for myself.
I remember in high school I had a friend from Budapest and she always told me the funniest and most lively stories about this city. I have been to Hungary before, but we never got to visit Budapest and I was so gutted. It just seems like such a cool city full of life and all the Hungarians I have met in my life are such lovely and fun people.
Lastly, I really want to visit Tokyo. And this is actually a bit out of my comfort zone as I have almost never left the European continent, haha. I’m a very ‘home loving’ person and when things are too different I can get a little bit scared. But the different is also what draws me in about Tokyo. It’s such a different culture than what I come from and I’m so fascinated about the Japanese culture – it’s such a rich culture! Also, Tokyo seems like a MASSIVE city to me with it’s 13.6 million people compared to the 600 000 living in my city, and I just feel like that would be such an experience.
