12 Places Tugging At My Wanderlust

Oh, the places I'll go.

12 Places Tugging At My Wanderlust

In my last post on adventuring, I said I never really wanted to travel the world. I'm not sure if I was lying to myself, or if I hadn't been bitten by the travel bug yet. Obviously, I've always wanted to go to France (particularly Paris, of course, but also Provence) and England, but I've never really wanted to travel.

Well, something's changed, because I have immense wanderlust now, especially for the following places.

1. Belgium

I've heard from some that Belgium is super boring, but I wouldn't mind a day or two there. Bruges (pictured above) seems especially lovely, and I wouldn't mind stopping in Ghent and Antwerp. Plus, I've gotta get some waffles and frites.

2. Prague, Czech Republic

I'm enchanted by the Old World style, and Europe is full of it. So Prague would be another stop on my Grand Tour of Europe.

3. Annecy, France

One of the smaller cities in France that I long to visit is Annecy. It's so picturesque and perfect for wandering.

4. The Loire Valley Chateaus

There are a bunch of castles I want to visit in France (and Europe in general), but the Loire Valley has some of the best.

5. Paris, France

I've wanted to go to Paris for years, and it will happen someday (hopefully sooner rather than later). I want to avoid most of the cliche touristy things (I can absolutely skip the Louvre; I'd rather go to the Musee d'Orsay), but I'd love to spend upwards of a week in the city because there's so much to discover.

6. Oslo, Norway

I'd love to hit up Scandinavia in general, but I think Norway would be my starting point. And of course I'd have to do a cruise through the fjords.

7. Normandy, France

One of my good friends is in Normandy right now, and I'm very envious. She posted a picture of a town the other day and told me I'd definitely like it, so I added Beuvron-en-Auge (pictured above) to my travel list.

8. Bath, England

It's a given, since it's Jane Austen territory. But it doesn't hurt that Bath is a place infused with history, which is catnip for a history geek like me.

9. Budapest, Hungary

A picture's worth a thousand words, so I think that image alone tells part of why I want to go.

10. Quebec City, Quebec

And guess who's actually going there (and Montreal) in a little over a month? I can't wait to visit the Old Town, which looks like it could be in Europe.

11. Edinburgh, Scotland

I'd like to go to Glasgow, too, and other places in the United Kingdom/British Isles. But I think Edinburgh will be my next stop in the U.K., after London and Bath.

12. Munich, Germany

I'd love to hit most of Germany. Munich and Hamburg are at the top of my list right now, although I've heard Cologne and the Black Forest region are also must-sees.

My list isn't complete, of course, so I'd love suggestions. I know right now it's very Europe-centric, and I definitely think I need to branch out to other continents.

Okay, now some rich, childless couple needs to adopt me so I can afford to travel to all these places.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
