New Blog

I moved blogs. There’s no reason, really, other than I wanted to start fresh on blogger (yeah, I suck). This blog will stay alive, gathering dust. Also, I don’t think I’ll remain anonymous on my new blog, but we’ll see.

You can find my new blog here.


Oh, the places I’ll go.

Travelling is my biggest passion in life. I love the history of other countries and the different cultures. I love exploring new ways of life, and being surprised at similarities in all different countries.

I am so lucky to have had the opportunities to travel to St. Petersburg, and the South of France, as far as countries outside of North America. I have been to different parts of Canada and the U.S., but the culture is so similar among the different cities I have visited. Except for Quebec, because everything is in French.

As lucky as I have been, I can’t help but have the strongest desire to travel until my heart bursts. So I’m going to create a list of the top ten places I want to visit (which very limiting for myself because ten is not enough)!

10. Australia

The Great Barrier Reef

Who the Hell doesn’t want to go to Australia? I want want to be able to live there for a year and bartend, or waitress, and then just travel around. Of course the Great Barrier Reef would be a must.

9. Southern United States

I couldn’t find a photo that I liked depicting why I wanted to travel down South. There’s something so nice when I read or watch things set in the South. Maybe it’s not that great, but it’s the kind of thing I’d like to find out for myself.

8. Germany

Berlin, Germany

I really want to learn German. Hopefully next year I’ll be able to take a class, and then hopefully in the future I can go to Germany to be able to speak it. Plus Germany is beautiful!

7. Norway

Preikestolen, Norway

Norway is a bit of a mystery to me. I know next to nothing of both it’s history and it’s culture. All I truly know is where it is on a map. That’s why I want to go so bad, to discover something that’s completely new and that I know nothing of.

6. Ireland

Dublin, Ireland

I’m Irish, and I feel the strongest relation to my Irish roots than the rest of my roots. I just want to check Ireland out, go to some pubs, look at the castles and the nature. Just chill, really, but hanging around in Ireland would be better than hanging around in my hometown.

5. England

London, England

I would love to visit England at Christmastime. The main reason I want to visit England is the culture. It would be awesome just to chill around England, and it would be easy because English is my first language so there wouldn’t be a barrier there.

4. Russia

Moscow, Russia

I want to back to Russia so bad! When I first went it was a tripped designed for dancers, so we had hours of dance class every day and a mojority of the nights we saw a ballet. That was wonderful, of course, but I want to go back to absorb more of the culture. I want to go with only one other person and I want to take my time looking at everything. Also I would love to go to Moscow as well as St. Petersburg.

3. The North of France

Hall of Mirrors, Versailles, France

Already having been to France, I know how the culture is and how the food is, however I haven’t seen all the things that you think of when you think “France”. Which is okay, but it’s also a great excuse to go back to France! Versailles is on the top of my list of things to see in France, then the Eiffel Tower, of course, Notre Dame, the Moulin Rouge, and the Louvre and all those standard things.

2. Greece

Santorini, Greece

Greek food is my all time favourite food, but that hardly plays into why I want to visit Greece so badly. All the architecture is beautiful, and I want to see all the ruins and learn about all of them because I feel like there is so much Greek history to learn about, and that I know barely any of it!

1. Italy

Val di Fassa, Italy

Ponte Sant'Angelo, Rome, Italy

Out of all specific monuments in the world, it’s the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain that I want to see the most. Also Italy holds the most specific cities I want to see: Rome, Florence, Venice, The Vatican, Milan, Verona, and so on. Plus Italy has great food, and such a rich history.
