Hey everyone! Happy Friday! I thought that due to last weeks blog post I would continue on this getting to know me more thing. Obviously, I love to travel but I thought this week I would give you all my top 10 places I would love to go to and why I want to go there. Before we get into this I want it known that I do know some of these are a little cliche, so don't judge me.
I'm starting my list with Greece. I have always been in love with the Greek culture and their history. Being that I am a huge history buff and I love mythology the Greeks myths have always been my favorite, which had originally been my inspiration to want to be an Anthropologist. I am getting the honor to be able to go to this beautiful country in April and I am so excited! (Stay tuned for more on this.)
The United Kingdom is second on my list and I know I'm cheating a bit with this one because I am putting multiple countries into one but I would love this trip to be an all together one so I bundled. I honestly want to spend a decent amount of time here so this one goes out to England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Once again I love history so I want to see all the amazing historical stuff, as well as the fact my favorite musician is from England and my favorite actor, is from Scotland.
Australia, I have always had a thing for Aussies (you can ask my Siri on my iPhone) but besides that I know this sounds silly and I'm going to warn you this will not be the only one I say this about.... if any of you are old enough to remember the movie The Rescuers Down Under, well I loved that movie with the Golden Eagle and I've wanted to go down under ever since. Once again I know it's silly, don't judge, that's rude.
The Middle Earth, I mean New Zealand! As some of you know New Zealand is where most of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films were shot. I would love to be able to see the beauty New Zealand offers and maybe find me Orlando Bloom....
Alright so I said I was going to be cliche, well here it is..... Italy the land where my favorite food group and probably all my extra weight comes from! Italy is another history baby to me the Roman Empire! To walk in the historical ruins of a people so long ago is one of my dreams! Also, I totally would love the food.
So, I may pick places that are a tad bit repetitive sorry all but next on my list is Egypt! I seriously would love to get lost in a pyramid and honestly I probably would be okay with not being found.
Okay so I love Lions and Tigers and Zebras and Elephants and you know all the amazing animals you only see in the Zoo... I want to see them in real life! I want to go to South Africa I want to see what a Safari really is, not just a movie. Also, I don't know if any of you know this but South African's have the sexiest accents by far!
Israel, I know this one may sound weird but I feel like visiting Israel would be a very spiritual experience for me. Growing up in the church world I feel very connected to the history of Jerusalem. Also, I hear they have some of the best shopping in the world which you know I would not complain about.
Russia, honestly I love their architecture the buildings are beautiful. Also, back to my childish cartoonness well you know that cartoon movie, Anastasia? Well I love it and probably have watched it a thousand times but as I got older I learned about the real story and it is such a sad story but I'd love to see the castle in real life.
As many of you have seen in pictures of me you all know I am very pale. Well, that is because I am predominately Swedish and we still have family that lives in Sweden. I think it would be so cool to get to meet them and experience my heritage.
Of course, I want to see the whole world and plan on doing so, but these are just few that are on my to-do list first. That is all for this week I hope you all enjoyed this weeks post. Do you have a bucket list of places to go? If so, where? Leave a comment below and maybe we can get you there! Or at least have a good conversation about it. I will talk at you all next week!
