I’ve made travel wish lists in the past, but the difference this year is that some of these wishes could actually come true! While I am trying to stay flexible this semester and not stress out when travel plans change or fall through, there are a few places I am determined to see before hoping on the plane back to America. Here we go:
I have always been fascinated by Amsterdam, even before it was made popular by the book/movie, “The Fault in Our Stars.” Several people in my group went last semester, and while I would have loved to see it in the fall with all the colorful leaves, I am excited to visit this Spring when the Tulips are in bloom and I can spend time outside wandering the canals.
I think the picture says it all. Italy is such a large country with so many gorgeous places, but if I have to pick just one this semester, I choose you, Rome! The history, the architecture, the language, the gelato- I could go on for days about what makes this capitol city so special. My friends and I are planning a trip for the end of February, so hopefully my dream will become a reality.
There is something mysterious and magical about Scotland. Ever since I watched “Braveheart,” I’ve longed to see this enchanted country. Or was it just Mel Gibson? Doubt it. A classmate of mine visited last semester, and ranted and raved about her experience! I quote her directly, “It felt like I had been there before because it was the place I’d always dreamed existed.” Pretty persuasive, eh? My girlfriend and I are imagining a trip in late March, when the weather is nice and we can take a bus tour of the Highlands. My life would be complete.
So now that you’ve read my 2015 Travel Wish List, it is your job to hold me to it! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to make these dreams a come true. And even if they don’t, I am content just dreaming about all this world has to offer. Bon Voyage and I hope all is well, my friends!
