Sometimes, oh well.. most of the time, I have daydreams of going to far away places. Being the traveler-at-heart slash street photographer that I am, achieving my travel targets is simply my Neverland. It’s my fantasy that I’m always turning into reality. It lets me fly off for a while in the busy streets of life and work.
Now that I’m officially crossing the border of my mid-20’s (ughh), I think it’s the perfect time to share with you my ultimate Wanderlist! Hope you get inspired and create your own too!
Note: As a traveler, I’m more of a photo explorer/ experience type and not the adventurer one. You will notice this in my dream destinations- where I’m more after the food, experience, magic, scenery, so there will be less or no beaches/extreme adventure places.
If you’ve watched the 2010 movie Eat, Pray, Love starring Julia Roberts, you’re probably with me on wanting to go to this place, to “eat”. But literally, I really want to go here to eat a perfect, authentic Pizza Margherita and loudly say “Delicioso!”. One more good reason is to tour around the landmarks mentioned in Dan Brown’s novels (I’m a huge fan!) and look for the mysterious, hidden symbols mentioned in his book.
Target Year: 2016-2017
Greece is the perfect destination for a romantic, picturesque getaway. I want to start the day with an early morning photowalk in Santorini’s signature white & blue themed villages, have a buffet of olive, wine, and cheese, then watch the best sunset of my life in Oia. I will also spend several days touring around the country for a Greek Mythology tour. Hopefully this long trip in Greece will turn me into the Goddess of Travel.
Target Year: 2017-2018
Though it might be cliche, and too mainstream for a dream destination, having a picture with the Eiffel tower is still a heart jumping experience for me. But probably, one more reason I want to go here is to experience and eat as much good bread as I want! My plan is to wake up at around 6 AM, bring my camera, walk down a street full of bakeshops, try to feel and smell all of the oh-so-good breads, then eat random pastry + food at every store! For lunch, I will try a Ratatouille, inspired directly from the Disney movie itself. Who knows- it might be Remy who cooked it, right?
