My Travel Wish List

bhutanNow that I am a travel blogger, I’ve been reading a lot of other travel blogs on the web and they make me want to travel even more, if that was even possible! But reading all of these blogs has made me think about all the things I want to do and places I want to go. When thinking about it, it’s a really long list! But here’s a crack at where I want to go and see:

Countries I Really Want to See
Bhutan- This country is very secluded from the world. They have a gross happiness factor! I mean how amazing is that! All the pictures I’ve seen from the country are beautiful. Life seems so simple and everyone seems so happy there. I also like how they have tight controls on tourism so people don’t come and ruin the country. This is a place I really want to see.
Tanzania- I’ve always dreamed of going to Africa. I want to go safari, see great animals, climb mt. Kilimanjaro, and head to Zanzibar. There seems to be so much to do in the country and the wildlife life just seems wonderful. There’s something unique and mysterious about Africa and one day I’ll make it there.
Peru- Home to the Incas, I really want to head up to Lima and hike the Inca Trail. That’s pretty much why I want to go there. I hear the culture is cool, Lima is a big historic city, Machu Picchu is one of the best things to see, and who doesn’t want to be hiking in the jungle!
Sweden- Stockholm looks pretty cool but lets face it, Sweden is full of hot Swedish girls. It may be really expensive but whatever, I want to meet hot Swedish girls. And yeah the landscape is cool. But I’m going for more shallow reasons!
The Seychelles- I love the beach. I really love the beach. Being tan is fun. The Seychelles is like looking at a picture perfect postcard. The beaches here look deserted, the water is crystal clear and there is a lot of tropical fish around in the coral reefs. This is tropical paradise at its best!

Things I Want to Do the Most
Hike Mt. Kilimanjaro- The only mountain in Africa with snow (for now at least). This mountain has an air of mystic to it and it just seems like a great accomplishment to achieve.
Learn to Scuba Dive- I love the ocean and I love to snorkel. This just seems like the next thing to do. There’s like a whole world underneath the sea and I just want to explore the beautiful ocean up close and personal.
Hike the Grand Canyon- This grand canyon is just really fucking big and I think it would be great to hike down the floor, spend a night or two there, and then hike out the other side!
Ride the Trans-Siberian Railroad- Seven days on a train through some of the biggest wilderness in the world. How great is that? You get to go through the countryside, ride through the Mongolia, and land out in Beijing! Ahh! It’s one of the best travels in the world!

These are just a few things that I want to do. I mean in reality, I want to do everything! But these are the highlights!

My World Adventures

travel-plansWelcome to my first blog post! This is my new blog about my travels around the world. Well, right now though I am not traveling around the world. I mean I hope to be traveling around the world soon. I did some traveling a few years ago but now I am home working. So this blog is to talk about my future travel plans, dreams, past travel stuff, and whatever else happens to be on my mind at the same time. I’m hoping to travel around the world next year. Right now I’m saving as much money as I can and paying off some debt so that around this time next year I can head out and explore the world. I love traveling and I miss doing it.

Two years ago I traveled around the Southeast Asia and Australia/New Zealand and it was a lot of fun. I spent 6 months in Asia, 2 months in Australia, and 3 months in New Zealand. It was incredible. I worked while I was in Oz and NZ so I could afford to travel to all these places like I did but there is something very special and unique about living and working in a foreign country. It sort of made me want to be an ESL teacher in Asia, which is an idea I haven’t totally discounted yet- it still might happen. I learned a lot about myself while living overseas and got to see the world for a different angle. For me that is what traveling is all about- learning about yourself and about the world. Travel is an addiction and I am now totally hooked.

I have a trip planned in a few months but I don’t know if I can wait that long!
