Places I want to go...

One of the biggest motivations in choosing my undergraduate degrees (International & Area Studies and French) was that I love to travel and see the world. Though life is full of contradictions (I love seeing the world...I hate being away from home for any extended period of time) & I am not exactly thrilled with what I got my degree in, I still want to experience as much of the world as I can in this short life.

I've started collecting photos of places that I want to see someday. Of course, the obvious locale are included. Niagara Falls. The Taj Mahal. The Great Wall of China. However, I want more to see the hidden treasures of this world. I want to see things that most people won't.

Sooooo, here's starting my list of places to see in the world!

Iguazu Falls
-between Parané, Brazil & Misiones, Argentina
As Elanor Roosevelt once said, "Poor Niagara."

Plitvice Lakes National Park
Croatia seems like one of the most beautiful 'scapes to visit. Aside from Plitvice Lakes, the rest of the country is equally as captivating.

-Indian Ocean
Not your typical American view of South Asia. It reminds me of Leo's The Beach (minus the part where everyone's utopia is ruined by the craziness of the human mind)

Hotel Igloo Village Kakslauttanen
As much as I don't believe that incredible accommodations are essential for world travel, this place is a BIG exception. You can stay in a glass igloo in sub-zero temperatures and witness some of the most spectacular views of the Northern Lights! I want to go now!!



  1. i want to go to the igloo with you!!!!!

  2. i want to go to the igloo too! one of my goals is to see the northern lights, and that seems like one of the most amazing ways!

  3. megan said the same thing. let's all plan a random trip to finland?!?!?!

  4. amazing. that is all. :) I will go to any of these places with you!
