I haven’t been to that many places in my life. Or as many as I would like to go, anyway.
My favorite trips so far:
A. Paris – We went on a school trip with my best friends. We went on my sophomore year of high school and it was such a great experience. We weren’t able to travel around Paris as much as i wished, but i’m still happy I got to go.
B. New York – I blogged about this in an earlier post. I went with Martin for our two-year anniversary. It was so fun! We really got to walk around and see all the famous places, as well as a few of the smaller, more indie places.
C. And third… I would have to say, when I was younger, we used to have a huge van. It had a VCR, TV, and lots of compartments to fit random toys. My parents used to take us on road trips all over the western states. We visited Utah, Oregon, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, and Colorado, among other places. I have a lot of fond memories of myself, Melinda, and Devyn watching movies and playing games in that van. We were too young to truly appreciate all of those places. At times we didn’t even want to get out of the car! That’s just sad. If I could take a road trip again, I’d want to visit all of these places again. It’d be different, now that I am older and could actually appreciate all of these places.
I really don’t have the time to travel much anymore. But if I were to somehow (magically) get vacation time, I’d like to visit so many places. Hopefully, at least once in my life, I’d be able to go to these places. Look how beautiful they are:
1. Guanajuato, Mexico
2. Colmar, France
3. Tahiti (and see REAL Tahitian dancers)
4. One day I’d like to visit Vietnam (where my Dad was from) and see what life is like there, meet the people, and explore these pretty waters:
5. Great Wall. One of the seven wonders of the world. Or is it eight?
6. I think this is Cinque Terre…is that right?
7. The Sapporo Japan Snow Festival
8. Definitely, Italia
10. Back to New York:
11. And back to Paris (especially if they have all of these pretty balloons):

Yes, I know, you can’t go everywhere. Plus I don’t have the kind of money to be traveling everywhere. But it’d be nice to go to any of these places. I want to see people, their culture, and what motivates them. I want to look at their mannerisms, their background. I want to meet the locals, find cute coffee shops, and sit and watch everyone walk by. It’s a long shot, but who wouldn’t dream of all of these things?
I used to daydream about traveling all the time, and now that I have a job, it’s been put on hold. I hope that one day, I could go with my future husband and travel the world together. Wouldn’t that be sweet? One of my sister’s best friends recently got engaged in Italy. ITALY! Can you imagine?! How amazing is that?
As I dream about all of these things, I’m still grateful for everything that I have right now. I’m lucky to be where I’m at. I’m lucky to have a job. Lucky to have the family, friends, and boyfriend that will support me. I wouldn’t want to change that for anything. But sometimes I just like to wish.
wish. wish. wish.
