30 Day Writing Challenge Day 5: Five Places I Want to Visit

Basically I want to see everything, so it was really hard for me to narrow this list down to five. I’ve already done a decent amount of traveling (I’ve been to England, Scotland, Denmark, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, and Palestine as well as several US states). But I have serious wanderlust and I’m addicted to history, so I love exploring new places.

BackgroundParis

Paris. Growing up, I always wanted to see Paris and London. I’ve already been to London (though I really want to go again – that trip wasn’t nearly long enough), so I would love to see Paris. It looks so beautiful in pictures, and I am really into the whole relaxed, Parisian vibe. I could probably live there.

Istanbul-HD-Wallpaper

Istanbul. I don’t know what it is about Istanbul, but I have had an uncontrollable urge to see it ever since I studied Eastern European history. It was pretty much the center of the world at the height of the Ottoman Empire, so it’s chock full of history. And Islamic architecture is unbelievably gorgeous! Seriously, google it right now – the detail is insane. I can’t imagine what it’s like to see it in person.

stonehenge-circle-pink-sky

Stonehenge. I was so freaking close to Stonehenge on a school trip, but the group voted to go shopping instead of see it. How was that even a choice? Clearly, I’m still angry about it. One day, I will see Stonehenge. And I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

Athens-Ruins-On-Acropolis

Athens. I have been obsessed with Greek mythology since I was about eight. I think it would be incredible to see the birthplace of so many different forms of art and philosophy.

Rome

Rome. Really, all of Italy. I’m Italian, so this is kind of a must. I really want to see where my family is from. Plus there’s that whole history thing again. I don’t know what it is about being in a place with so much history, but it’s truly magical.
