6 Places I Want to Visit

Posted by on 22 Aug 2014 at 22:19 in Lists, Places

There are many, many places I want to travel to in this vast world of ours, so making a short list wasn’t an easy task. These places have been on my wish list for quite a while now and hopefully I’ll visit them someday.

Ireland

Cliffs of Moher, Liscannor, IrelandI first fell in love with Ireland when I was 11. We did a school project and each class got a different country. During one month we learned about Ireland’s culture and history. Since then I have always been fascinated by the green mountains, the cliffs and the magical atmosphere of this country. What I’d really like to do there is rent a car and travel to all corners of Ireland.

japan

Daisho in Temple, Miyajima, JapanI must have inherited my dad’s love for Japan. He loves samurais, karate, Zen Buddhism and Japanese scrolls. I started eating sushi when I was 1 year old. I’ve always found the clash of the traditional with modern Japan fascinating.

italy

Tuscany - Italy

It’s probably my Italian blood but I can’t wait to go to Italy (and I really can’t believe I still haven’t been there). Rome, Tuscany, Positano, Umbria, Florence… I want to go everywhere. And, also very important, is the delicious Italian food. If I can believe my Italian colleague (and I do, especially based on the amazing products she’s brought from Naples), Italy has the best food in the world.

scandinavia

LysefjordDon’t ask me where exactly I want to go because I want to visit the whole region: Norway, Sweden, Denmark… I want to visit the capitals but also the raw nature. Preferably listening to Storm, Ulver and Otyg.

South africa

Table Mountain, Cape Town, South AfricaI have a feeling that, in many ways, South Africa will remind me of Brazil. I have seen beautiful photos, I have read many things and I have heard amazing stories.

bali

Bali

The Dutch are fascinated by Bali. Most people I know here in the Netherlands have been to Bali at least once and they all say the same: go visit Bali! Since doing a project about Bali in college and little fire has been lit and I really want to see those rice fields.

And where would you like to go? Which destinations are on your wish list?

Six Places I Want to Visit

There are many, many places I want to visit in this vast world of ours so making a list is a bit tricky. These places have been on my list for years and hopefully I get to visit them sometime.

Ireland

My love for Ireland started when I was 11 years old. We did a project in school: every class got one country and during one month we immersed ourselves in the culture and history of Ireland.

I must have inherited my dad’s love for Japan. He’s into samurais, karate, Zen Buddhism and japanese scrolls. I started eating sushi when I was 1 year old. The clash of the traditional with one of the most modern countries fascinates me.

italy

Tuscany - Italy

It might be my Italian blood but I can’t wait to go to Italy (and frankly I can’t believe I still haven’t been). Rome, Tuscany, Positano, Umbria, Florence… I want to visit them all. And of course, another important point is the delicious Italian food. If I can believe my Italian colleague (and based on what she’s brought for us from Napoli, I can!) Italy has the best food in the world.

scandinavia

South Africa

Table Mountain, Cape Town, South Africa

I don’t know why but I have a feeling that, in many aspects, South Africa will remind me of Brazil. I’ve seen beautifil pictures, read many thing and heard many amazing stories.

A Place to Call Home

 Agua de Annique – Sunken Soldiers Ball 

In the 11 consecutive years I lived in Brazil, I always dreamed of coming back to Amsterdam. Now I’m here for 4 years and I’m always nostalgic about Brazil and keep thinking about all the good things. Both times I went back to Brazil, I returned thinking Amsterdam is awesome. But soon after, reality kicks in and the nostalgia begins all over again. Why can’t I be happy in the place I am? Human beings are so complicated (or maybe it’s just me). So, I made a little list os some of the things I love about Amsterdam. Thinking positive! 😉

 

– hundreds of concerts every year.
– many art exhibitions, for all tastes.
– everything is close by, you can cycle everywhere.
– and if lazyness kicks in, public transport is great, efficient and safe.
– if you don’t speak Dutchs it won’t be a problem, everyone speaks English. Even the baker.
– a billion bars and cafes, almost all cornes have one.
– beautiful people.

 

There is more but this is all for today.
