If you give me $5,000 to spend I would probably travel to a country I have never been to. If I could, I would travel all year long. I am not talking about vacations laying on the beach of the hotel, a Piña Colada in one hand and your favorite magazine in the other. Today, we are speaking about the trip that changes your way to see the world and makes you grow. What I like the most about traveling is meeting new people and discovering their habits and culture.
I was lucky enough to travel and visit different countries, but as long as I have not done every single country, it will never be enough. As you may have understood, my travel bucket list is long as hell, so I’ll be focusing on three countries. Maybe, it will have a part 2 soon.
Four years ago (wow, already!), I was doing an exchange all summer long to improve my English in Boston. It was the longest trip I ever had: 2 days of travel, 3 connection flights… You can guess that I was exhausted when I finally arrived. Well, one of my stops was in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. At my biggest regrets, I did not have time to visit or see anything other than the airport and the outstanding landscapes from the window of the plane. Since then, I promised myself I would do anything in my power to get a chance to discover this amazing country. When I was younger, I used to be passionate about the polar lights. I deeply hope I will be able to realize my dream in Iceland.
I don’t know if I ever say that, but I used to be a girl scout when I was living in France. We were really focused on humanitarian projects, and I am very sensitive to the living conditions in India. I’d like to volunteer at an orphanage. Despite the precarious way of life, I have been told that people are always happy and welcoming. I also would love to discover the Taj Mahal. In my opinion, it is the greatest proof of love on Earth. Just before spring, Indians have a yearly festival called Holi which celebrates love and good outcomes. It would be the perfect occasion to celebrate with locals.
Turkey? Mmh… Why Turkey? Ok, I’ll explain. First of all: F-O-O-D (especially pastries). Traveling is the perfect excuse to put your diet on the side and try the exotic food (You’ll hit the gym once you are back home girl hun! Oupsi). Turkish food looks amazing and so different from what I am used to be eating. But food isn’t the only reason, I want to travel there. You have certainly heard of Cappadocia before. It is becoming more and more touristic thanks to an awesome air balloon festival. So, if we sum up, you can fly in an air balloon and take amazing pictures above the hills and the rocks while tasting new food. I hope Turkey is on your bucket list too, now.
Tell me what is the first destination on your bucket list so I’ll be inspired for my next trip!
