I like this question.
I spent most of my young adult life living out of a suitcase. I’d say from the age of 17 until I was around 25. It was an age that left me with that freedom to have wanderlust. I don’t think I feel that type of freedom now, but I feel the need to travel and try something new. I wouldn’t want to live out of a suitcase. Relaxing is much too much of a wanted commodity at my age, and traveling takes a bit of work.
I’d like to visit, stay maybe a few months to a year, and then travel somewhere else. That might be the ticket. I’m used to living on very little since I’m a minimalist.
And so… here goes:
5. List five places you want to visit
I actually saw an article at Bored Panda about Top 201 Fairy Tale Villages.
I’d love to visit most of them, but there were around 30 I would never want to visit. I love small villages and that site had a lot of nice photos worth taking a look. But mostly I’d prefer to visit small villages in Europe. I think they’d be quaint. Also, Japan and Iceland would have a nice small town feel to them.
Ah well, here’s the list:
1. UK and Ireland
Every village in the UK and Ireland because you have the Cotswolds in England, the city of Edinburgh, the Loch Ness monster, all the beauty of Snowdonia in Wales, and then the green luscious colors of Ireland and Stonehenge. There is just too much to see and it would take a few years of living there to truly feel you’ve visited.
I feel akin to that part of the world and missed it more than any other place I’d visited in my life.
Japan. I just don’t mean Tokyo or the fact I’ve always wanted to see Mt. Fuji in the distance
and then stand at the bottom of it and look up. I want to visit all the shrines. I mean, every single shrine and have tea, and then relax in the countryside and be chilled up north. I would love to visit the Gundam museum and watch all the cleanliness and life of Japan. I also want to see the statue of Hachiko in Shinbuya.
3. Every National Park in the United States – well, most of them.
I’d like to hike through Monument Valley in Utah and see the red rocks of Sedona again.
I’ve seen the Grand Canyon quite a bit, but wouldn’t mind seeing it again. I mostly want to visit cabins and stay the night and spend time in the mountains. I’d like to see the lighthouses along both the western and eastern coasts. There are quite a few National Parks I’d love to visit.
4. Visiting the Aurora Borealis?
I just want to see the Aurora Borealis.
I don’t really care where I see it, I just want to see it. I wouldn’t mind even driving up the PCH (Highway 1) along the western contiguous states and end up so far north I eventually see the northern lights. I’d love to see Vancouver and Alaska, and then spend some time driving the countryside until one night I see the northern lights (Aurora Borealis).
I just don’t want to see bears. I know they can rip off your skull with one paw, and I have a strange fear of this happening. (I’m weird like that.)
This is the place on earth I have dreamed of living.
I’d love to see Iceland and possibly stop at the Faroes Islands
and stay in their quaint villages and then go up to Iceland. It seems like such a nice place to visit and stay awhile. I think I’d write a lot of music in Iceland. It seems to have music in its veins. I’d definitely need to travel with my guitar or ukulele.
And so, that was my list. Where would you most like to visit or travel? Even without this challenge, that’s a cool question to think about. It’s one of those things we place on our bucket lists.
I hope you have a fantastic day of seeking and searching and finding what you’re looking for! 🙂
Love you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
