I’m not such of a world traveller. I mean, I haven’t not travelled ever before; I’ve been both out of province and overseas before. But I would never say that I’ve travelled to a ton of places before. That’s usually been because of school taking precedence.
But with school all done- and having both a full-time job and freelancing career to make money- I finally feel like I can try to enjoy my life post-school. One of the things I want to do is travel a lot. From different places in Canada, to the U.S., and plenty of other countries outside that bubble, there’s so much that I want to explore while I’m alive.
Here are the 10 places that I want to visit most (in no particular order):
1. Los Angeles, California, USA
I’m not itching to go here for the chance to meet a celebrity. (Really!) I’m more interested in the shopping, warm weather, and waters to swim in.
Anytime I’ve seen photos of this European country, I’ve always loved how gorgeous it is. It’s definitely a far away place, but I have a feeling it’d be worth it.
I may not drink at all, but that doesn’t mean that visiting Ireland would be a complete waste. The greenery and historic landmarks alone would make this excursion well worth it.
Speaking of far away places…I couldn’t have pick anywhere farther if I tried. But considering how beautiful this place looks during summer, taking over a day just to fly out to Australia doesn’t seem too bad.
5. Québec City, Québec, Canada
I went to Québec City back when I was in high school for a field trip, and I had a blast back then. But considering that was almost 10 years ago (Where on Earth has the time gone?!), I think it’s high time that I revisit this gorgeous historical city.
Italian food is arguably my favourite kind of food out there- so why not experience the real deal? Between that, the lovely weather, and the vast history, this boot-shaped country is one that I really, really want to explore for like a week or so.
7. Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
Not every place I want to visit are for the history of the place. This American city off the mainland will have me wanting to unplug as much as possible so I can truly relax.
8. Great Britain
I’ve visited London, England in the past soon after finishing high school- which was fun, but I never had the chance to explore the rest of Great Britain. This would make for a long trip, but it’d be a super cool one to take one day.
9. Muskoka Region, Ontario
“Cottage country”, for me, has always been Stony Lake in Lakefield, ON- and it’s beautiful in its own right. But given how popular Muskoka is with so many more people, I kind of want to check it out to compare the two.
This is the only place on this list that, to be honest, kind of came from out of nowhere. But this smaller country is one that’s always intrigued me, so why not throw it on this list?
Yes, this is definitely an eclectic mix of cities and countries on this list. And no, I don’t anticipate that I’ll visit them all by either this year or the next. But this will certainly come in handy for years to come whenever I’m able to travel. Hopefully, that can happen sooner than later.
