Right now my feet are itchy to get away somewhere just to go visit new places, to wander about and explore, I have major wanderlust right now. If course like most people I want to travel all over the world, but there's quite a few places where I just look at them and instantly need to visit. I really want to visit America but right now I'm kind of craving Europe and I'd love to see more of the UK. I'm one of those people who likes to visit places and take hundreds of photos, I always have and probably always will, I always plan a few days when I visit somewhere but always leave room just to wander about and right now that's what I'm really craving. Just wandering around somewhere different, a pretty place with new sights and just get the chance to see things and take hundreds of photos. I've been pretty pinterest happy the past few weeks pinning so many beautiful photos of places I want to go so I thought I'd share a couple with you here, for all the beautiful places I want to see you can find my wanderlust board here.
Paris is one place I've visited the most yet I've never explored it, ok so I've been 3 times, I can't remember the first, the second I was only interested in Disneyland and the last was a school trip and we didn't see much. I'd love to go to the Louvre, see Notre Dame, go up the Effiel Tower even though I'm afraid of heights. I'd love to do all the standard touristy stuff, I'd probably have to take a trip to Disney whilst there, I mean it would be rude not to right? I'd love to just wander Paris though, watch people, eat in patisseries and look longing at all the beautiful things in stores that I could never afford.
Ugh Venice is just so beautiful, the fact that it's surrounded by water makes me feel a little sick but it just looks so beautiful. I've been dying to visit here for as long as I can remember. I'm not sure what intrigues me about Venice but I think it's just the sheer beauty of it, I don't even want to think the amount of photos I'd take if I visited Venice, or the amount of Gelato I'd attempt to eat either!
What amazes me is how pretty Amsterdam looks when in reality when you sit and think about the place it sounds a little seedy and you'd expect it to be a bit mucky but it always looks beautiful in photos. I'm determined to go on one of the mini cruises there for a weekend before the end of next year. Amsterdam is just a place I want to visit since it looks so photogenic, although the zoo looks like it would be a good place to visit and of course I'd have to go to the sex museum.
I've been to Edinburgh a handful of times in the past but I've never actually had a chance to wander around at my own pace, I've ever been their for gigs or trips to the castle etc. I've never just been able to wander about and see things, the top of my list would definitely be a trip to The Elephant House because Harry Potter obviously, I'd also have to take a trip to the zoo as it would be rude not to.
Source.Russia has been on the top of my places to visit list for the past 10 years, I remember reading about a museum in St. Petersburg that has animals and stuff in formaldehyde I think it was the Kunstkamera museum, and that's how my interest in Russia was sparked. I started reading about Russia, the Tsars, everything. I find it such a beautiful looking place with so much history, and so many things to see and learn about. The culture is so different and I'd just love to experience that, I've priced up trips so many times, but Russia appears to be an expensive place to visit so I'll have to wait until I get a pretty good job before I visit!

I feel like there are so many places I want to visit yet not enough time or money to see them all. Which is ridiculous as I'm not even 21 yet (about 4 weeks to go!) but still. I'm hoping real hard though that by some miracle that by the end of this year I'll have had a few weekends away like mini breaks around the UK and Europe. I just have to find someone who is happy to wander aimlessly with me whilst I take a million photos of things!
Is there anywhere in the world you'd love to visit?
