I’m mixing it up a little today and talking about some non-bookish things. I’m talking about five places I really want to visit, to be exact. Before I start, I have to give props to Michelle for giving me this idea. Thanks, bae.
Some of you might know that I’m learning German, and I have a general obsession with Germany. I’ve been to a couple of German cities already—Frankfurt, Heidelberg and Munich, which were all beautiful but I want to see Berlin. This also has a bit of a family connection as my grandpa was stationed in Berlin during the War.
I’ve wanted to visit Canada for as long as I can remember. In fact, this has been something my entire family has always wanted to do but we never have. The days of family holidays are long gone, but I will make it to Canada one day!
If you know anything about me, you’re probably aware of my love for Wales. My mum lived in Cardiff by herself for four years when she was my age. More specifically, she lived in Ely, just outside of Cardiff. Yes, that’s in part where my name comes from, although I pronounce it as Ellie, instead of the ‘real’ pronunciation.
I’ve always been a bit intimidated by the U.S. There’s just so much there, and some of it honestly doesn’t interest me. One place I do want to visit is Chicago. One of my best friends in the entire world lives near-ish to the city, and it would mean everything to me if I got the chance to visit her.
This is kind of a cheat because I have been to Amsterdam before, but I was on a bus tour and I only got to spend a few hours there. I wasn’t sure whether I’d like the city, but it was gorgeous and I want to go back. Of course, I need to make it to the Anne Frank Haus. I admitted defeat last time due to the amount of stairs and the problem that causes with my disability, but one day I am going to make it into the Annexe, even if it means I can’t walk for days afterwards.
I know this is very Europe based, but honestly, I don’t think I’m ready to visit Asia. This might be ignorant of me (in which case, please do correct me), but Asia is quite busy, right? I don’t do so well in large crowds, or very noisy places. I want to visit one day, especially Japan, but my anxiety is way too bad for that right now. This certainly isn’t a full list of places, or even a quarter of it, but these are my top places as of this very moment.
