Since I've read Greek mythology, I wished I could see all the magnificent places described. Ranging from Greek to Norse Mythology, here are 10 mythological places I would visit if I could.


1. Avalon


I watched the TV show "Merlin" and read many Arthurian legends which made me sorely wish I could go to legendary place believed to be the final resting point of the great King Arthur. According to many Arthurian sources, it wasn't just Arthur's resting place but also the place that has extraordinary healing powers that helped him live after a major battle. It is also the place where his infamous sword, Excalibur, was first forged.

2. Camelot

Again, after watching "Merlin," I couldn't rest without imagining what it'd be like to live in Camelot under the rule of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. It is also said to be the location of the famous round table and Camelot's royal palace.

3. Atlantis

Many have researched and tried to find Atlantis but it was without success. Ever since, I read about the mythological island, I've always wanted to visit it if it was ever found. Some believe the island never existed as Plato, the starter of the Atlantis legend, stated that the founders of Atlantis were half-god and half-human. Much like the demigods in "Percy Jackson."

4. The Underworld

Greek mythology has been a part of for a long time and I've wanted to visit many of the mythological places mentioned, such as the Underworld, the realm of Hades, Lord of the Dead. I mean, who doesn't want to sneak into Elysium and speak to Achilles or Hercules? Or go and play with the world's largest hellhound Cerberus?

5. Olympus

How cool would it be to see all the Olympians gathered together under one roof? I personally want to meet Athena and Poseidon to know about their famous competition for being the patron of Athens. And I want to meet Artemis, goddess of the moon, hunt, and maidens and learn how to be a great archer.

6. Garden of the Hesperides

Only reason I want to visit is for Ladon, the dragon who guards the Apples of Immortality and to meet the Hesperides.

7. Valhalla

A place where you could die and come back all the time, have all the luxuries you can imagine, and a chance to run into Odin, the All-Father, and his legendary Valkyries? Sign me up please!

8. Themiscyra

I've always been fascinated with the legendary adventures of the Amazons and their ruthlessness in war. Legends say this land of the amazons has was visited by the many Greek heroes and gods such as Zeus and Heracles (Greek form of Hercules). The chance of meeting them, the Amazons, would be the one of the best things ever. Also, Wonder Woman is showed to be an Amazon so that also heightens my desire to go there.

9. Shambala

Many religious texts state that it'd be the final birthplace of the incarnation of the Hindu God Vishnu. It is also said to have many unimaginable powers and beings. It'd be awesome to witness the birth of the incarnation of a god and gain super powers.

10. Asgard

Asgard palace

Asgard is the lavish realm of the gods and is said to be ruled by Odin and Frigga, his wife. It is widely believed to be the equivalent of Mount Olympus from Greek mythology. Asgard is one of the nine realms, connected to the Yggdrasil, which is the tree that connects all the nine realms.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
