Everyone has at least one place they'd absolutely love to visit someday, whether the destination has a historic, ancestral, literary, or simply enjoyable meaning. Traveling anywhere ignites a passion within a person of a desire to see and experience a multitude of cultural aspects. To travel is truly a privilege that everyone should have the opportunity to experience at some point within their lives, and I too hope that I will be lucky enough to travel to several countries and certain destinations someday. These places include some of the destinations that everyone may wish to consider for their own traveling endeavors:
1. Fairy Glen, Isle Of Skye, Scotland
Fairy Glen in the Isle of Skye looks exactly as its name indicates; namely, something straight out of a fairytale. The stark greenery with the gloomy sky and swirling landscape are straight out of a fantasy novel or film and encapsulates all that tourists imagine classic Scottish scenery to be!
2. The Redwood National Park, California
Other than serving for a location for filming of Star Wars and its immense historical background, the Redwood National Park is home to some of the largest trees, fascinating wildlife, and interesting climate (a temperate rainforest!).
3. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Finland
This resort has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember. I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights, and this seems like the best way to do it. The cozy igloos contrasting the frigid landscape provide the perfect arctic getaway to see one of nature's most beautiful phenomena!
4. The Crooked Forest, Poland

5. The Jacobite Steam Train (Glenfinnan Viaduct), Scotland

While incredibly somber and disturbing due to the reason for the city's fame, Pompeii nonetheless would be incredibly fascinating to witness in person and would certainly evoke gratitude for safety from natural disasters and technology to foresee such events from any visitor!

I seem to have a running theme of fairytales-come-to-life on this list of destinations, as Neuschwanstein Castle really takes the cake for fitting the mold as such. Its position high upon and among the trees serve as a lonely yet enchanting place representing the extensive history of the world showing glimpses of the past even within the modern day.
