It'll come as no surprise that I'm kinda fond of travelling. I love new cities and new cultures and new places to explore and get lost (and hopefully un-lost) in. I'm a sucker for architecture and artsy little side-streets, and, 90% of the time when left to my own devices with a camera it will be of food or scenery. One of the items on my bucket list is to visit at least one city in every country (within reason, I don't exactly have a death wish).
My wanderlust knows no bounds, it seems. But there are 9 places that I really, really, really, really, really, want to visit right this very second.
Exams be... semi-damned??

If you gave me a blank plane ticket and said I could go anywhere in the world, I'd say Singapore without hesitation. Eternal summer and intense humidity be damned, I wanna go sooooo baaaaad. It has some of the most gorgeous modern architecture mixed with traditional and you'll probably see that's the crazy juxtaposition that I don't think I'll ever fall out of love with. Also the food, and the people. I'd really, really love to meet more of my Singaporean friends in the flesh. Please show me all the good spots so I can thoroughly embarrass you all with my MASSIVE TOURISTY CAMERA.
#2 Gothenburg - Sweden
|Gothenburg Nights :: Rytis Šeškaitis|
#3 Osaka - Japan
|Shinseikai, Osaka :: Juanma Lopez|
Tokyo is great and all, but my little weeb heart was born in the streets of Osaka. Kansai-ben, man. I'd love to do the whole of Japan properly at some point, the history and the touristy, but mostly I just wanna sit in a tiny hole-in-the-wall joint eating ace udon (because udon is the best noodle) and getting moderately inebriated on sweet umeshu. That's plum wine. Please please please please pleaseeeeee.
#4 Rome - Italy
|Sunset in Rome :: David Mikkelsen|
I'm no stranger to Italy, but I haven't been to Rome yet. Which I think is possibly a sin in most European travel circles. Oops. And well, the question of what the Romans do when in Rome has been playing on my mind for quite a while... Plus, who wouldn't want to wander through the streets with all that stunning architecture to gawk at - not to mention the food.
#5 Hong Kong
|Hong-Kong Wooloomooloo Bar Rooftop :: Raphaël Melloul|
Technically a re-visit, but I'd much prefer to see Hong Kong in a non-whistlestop 'gotta get away from stuff' kinda way. I think it would also be nice to remember to take my camera too. Because the last time I didn't. And probably not decide to go at the beginning of July, possibly for longer than a weekend. All the mistakes. Many regret. Will try and rectify.
#6 Wulingyuan (Zhangjiajie) National Park - China
#7 Krakow - Poland
#8 Edinburgh - Scotland
|Calton Hill :: The Traveller|
Ok, no I wouldn't but I'd certainly take advantge of aLL THE ARCHITECTURE and stone buildings and take some really (hopefully) awesome shots. It's the most affordable destination for me to get to by myself so hopefully this one will happen soon.
#9 Neuschwanstein Castle - Germany
I don't know if this is a sever case of want to visit or want to live because HELLO FAIRYTALE CASTLE. I could finally realise my true nature as the badass Ice Princess of my dreams. I mean, I'd def need to hit the gym before going though, this place is at an impressive altitude, and as hilly as Sheffield is, I don't think it quite has me prepared for that.
Ahhhhhh the dream to have 6 months holiday twice a year where you can travel the world~
Unfortunately this is still very much a dream as student and finances aren't exactly easy to come across when long-haul flights are probably going to cost me a kidney. One day. One daaay.
Your turn now! Where do you want to travel to most in the world? Going anywhere nice over summer????? Let me know, we can share the wanderlust bug~
