If you're like me, you've never really done much travelling. That's not to say I don't want to travel, but I just haven't had many opportunities. Sure, I've done your standard out-of-state family visit trip and a Disney vacation, but there are plenty of places outside the United States that I want to explore. I've only been out of the country once before - to Belize - and it definitely made me want to see more of the world. Here's a list of places I've always wanted to visit!
Amsterdam is first on my list for a few reasons. It's beautiful, with all the canals and architecture. Also, there's a lot of history there. I'd love to visit the Anne Frank museum and the Corrie ten Boom House someday!
2. Prince Edward IslandGiphy
If you've ever read "Anne of Green Gables," you understand why I want to visit this place. Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's descriptions alone, it sounds like one of the most beautiful places in the world.
3. Tulsa, OKGiphy
This seems like an odd choice, but one of my favorite books, "The Outsiders," is set in Tulsa. The movie was filmed there as well, and the house they used has since been turned into a museum! I would love to see my favorite book come to life like that.
Call me a nerd, but there's so much history in London. Between all the museums and all the landmarks, there are so many things I want to see. Plus, it's the birthplace of Shakespeare, who wouldn't get excited about that?
Sometimes, it's hard to think about all the Bible stories you grow up hearing about actually happening at a place you can visit. I think it would be so cool to see the places where people like Moses, David, and Jesus lived, to walk where they walked. Seeing history right in front of you makes it more real, so I definitely want to visit Israel one day!
My dad visited Ireland when I was younger, and after he showed me all the pictures he took, I knew I wanted to go there myself one day! Plus, they have a bunch of castles there - who wouldn't want to see some castles?
Aside from being absolutely beautiful, it's super cheap to go to Iceland. They want to increase tourism there, so it's pretty cheap to fly there and experience the sights.
Between the food and the history, I will be in my happy place when I visit Rome someday. I can't even begin to list the places I want to visit in Rome - there's far too many!
Hawaii is warm and a group of islands, what else could I want? Plus, the USS Arizona memorial is there, and I've wanted to see that since I did a report on it in middle school.
10. Belize (Again)Giphy
As my only trip out of the country so far, Belize has a special place in my heart. I want to go back and visit the places I went to before, and get to explore more of such a beautiful country!
Pyramids, mummies, Nile River, need I say more?
There's so much flora and fauna that we don't get to see in North America, so I think it would definitely be a fun trip! Also, I've always wanted to go to the Southern Hemisphere to see the different constellations that can't be seen up here.
I'm very French, so I'd love to visit any part of France just to see the land of my ancestors. Plus, a trip to the Eiffel Tower would be pretty cool, wouldn't it?
Ever since watching The Cheetah Girls 2, I've always wanted to visit Spain. I would love to be immersed in the culture, experience all the amazing things Spain has to offer, and get a chance to practice my Spanish (which is extremely rusty)!
