Hi, guys! It’s officially summertime! Yesterday was the first time I went to the beach this year, which is kinda crazy since I literally live 10 minutes away from the ocean, lol. And we didn’t even go to lay on the beach, just a little evening stroll during the sunset.
As you know, I shared with you earlier this month that July will be my “traveling through books month”. I want to wrap all my “travels” up before the Reading Rush begins on the 20th of July, so as I’m writing this post, I’m on my last book and last destination – Afghanistan. Hopefully, I’ll manage to finish it today and return home in time for the read-a-thon 😀
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Book Events/Festivals I’d Love to Go to Someday, but since July is all about traveling on this blog, I decided to make a little twist on this week’s theme and share top 5 destinations I’d love to visit one day!
1 – Edinburgh, Scotland
Were you expecting a tropical island? 😀 I definitely prefer having more urban holidays. So let’s start with my n.º 1 ultimate destination – Edinburgh!
I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland, ever since I started learning English at school and we had these “country study” lessons, where we learned about different English-speaking countries / towns / cities. I loved it! I loved the photos taken in Edinburgh and I knew that one day I will travel to see it with my own eyes.
2 – Paris, France
Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, Louvre, Notre Dame… Paris harbors all of the most famous monuments, museums, and cathedrals. When I was little, I had a children’s detective story in which they traveled to Paris and I LOVED it! I must have re-read it over 20 times, and imagined myself visiting all of the places mentioned in the book. Later, when I read «The Da Vinci Code» by Dan Brown, my love for Paris (and Louvre) intensified threefold.
It’s sad that I won’t be able to see the Notre Dame in its true glory, but I can’t wait to walk the streets of Paris, take a boat tour on Sena, and finally visit Louvre!
3 – Rome, Italy
Last year we were planning a car trip from the South to the North of Italy. It was supposed to happen this year, however with the current situation, and the fact that my exams got postponed by more than 6 months, we scrapped this idea (for now). In any case, I have my route already all planned out and it will definitely happen soon!
4 – London, England
I don’t think I need to explain why I want to visit London 😀 Although, I have to be honest – I’m not as excited about it as I used to be. I probably would prefer to see the South of the UK or maybe travel to Ireland, but London is one of those “bucket-list” cities that I need to check off my list at some point.
5 – Athens, Greece
Athens and many other Greek islands ❤ Spending a week or so at one of the Greek islands would be a dream come true! This is a perfect destination to not only walk around and see historic sights but also lounge by the pool or beach, eat very tasty food and drink lots of cold sparkly wine. Mmmh…
This was such a fun post to make! I hope you’ll enjoy this as well. I just hope that in a couple of years I’ll be able to re-make this post and insert photos taken by me at all of these locations! 🙂
