If you love to travel you might have a list of places you want to visit in your lifetime. Even if you don’t love traveling you might want to go to certain places you heard from other people.
I’m not one of those who are crazy about traveling for I’m a bad traveler. I got sea sick, car sick and am actually afraid of flying. It means I don’t feel the urge to visit places that I had visited more than once. But there are places I really want to see enough to endure the long flight and places that I love enough to visit again.
I love the hustle and bustle of city life and therefore my favorite destinations tend to be cities with modern conveniences/attractions. Having said that there are places with its breathtaking natural beauties that make me want to visit it again.
Time and money is the most important keys in traveling besides knowing which destination you want to go. Being in the central of tourism destinations might help.
Europe for example.
But living in
Europe doesn’t necessarily
mean that you would be able to travel the continent and visit all places that
are mentioned in travel guides particularly not if you are a student, which was
I wasn’t really a model student back home – I skipped classes a lot – but when I studied abroad I never miss classes and devoted more time for my studies which means limited time to travel. And being a regular student there wasn’t enough money to spend on traveling.
I didn’t get the chance to go to
be exact and miss seeing this beautiful sight. Berlin
Many people think that
is a peace of heaven on earth but I
think we have many pieces of heaven on earth that are scattered around the
globe. Each country has its own unique beauty and wonderful history and for
some reason I love this shot of New
The windmills and not the tulips. Netherlands
Another destination is
I don’t think I have a favorite shot of this Singapore ,
the Lion is such a lame shot but it’s very well known. City State
Loving shopping/window shopping as much as I do there’s really no need for me to say why I love
I even love its airport! No, kidding. I LOVE its airport. Singapore
I think it’s the best airport in the world. I don’t mind being stranded in
airport for a day or two. I spent 14 hours in Singapore Doha
international airport once, it wasn’t that bad, but somehow I kept thinking ‘I
wish I was in ’. Singapore
What other places worth mentioning? Ah,
. I’ve never been to New York but had I had a
friend who wouldn’t mind spending the money for the trip to the Big Apple I’ll
pack my bag. New York
Then there is
and the reason is this. Egypt
I haven’t been to
I don’t understand the pull that some people feel when they see that sphinx.
But who knows, if I see it in person I’ll get it. Egypt
Another compelling picture is the picture of Taj Mahal of India.
I’ve grown up seeing this picture at home. If I’m not mistaken my father travel to
India more than
once and naturally he found time to go to
and posed in front of this monumental monument of love. Agra
Had I wanted to go to
I could, quite easily, the offers were always there. But you know how the
stories you hear from others who didn’t have a good experience could influence
your opinions. India
Even a picture could send a wrong message, let’s take a look at this shot of our beloved city Jakarta and see how would you feel about it and mind you I don’t show the pictures of its being flooded or occupied by demonstrators which are quite a routine here ^_^
Now, last but not least, I think to all who love Korean Dramas, a visit to South Korea has become an obsession. For those who love saguek this picture of
is definitely a sight to see. Changdeokgung Palace
My only regret was that I didn’t get the chance to visit those production houses where they shot all those dramas and missed the chance to see some of the Hallyu stars.
