Last week I posted a link to an article from Buzzfeed.com about ten beautiful places in the world. I told everyone that I’d make a list of ten places I’d like to see.
Well, here it is.
I’ll start with a few countries I’d like to visit at some point in my life.
I’ve always had a soft spot for the Japanese culture. Their language, architecture, and art have always intrigued me. I’d love to spend some time photographing the country.
The Emerald Isle. What could be better than rolling green hills, beautiful coastline, and castles?!
You can’t call yourself an artist and not want to visit Italy. You just can’t! Italy is so rich in art and culture that it’s basically a requirement when planning an overseas trip.
Forget “The Big Bang Theory” and Dr. Raj Koothrapali for a second. Let’s be serious. Like Italy, India is lush with beautiful sights. Hindu and Buddhist temples, majestic landscapes, etc.
Two words…Greek Mythology. Two more words…The Parthenon. I think I’ve made my point.
Now that I’ve listed some countries, here are a few specific spots I’d like to visit.
6. USA: All the National Parks
I’ve been to Acadia National Park in Maine but that doesn’t mean I’ll remove it from the list! Like every location, you can visit it several times, at different times of day, and in different seasons, and come away with new and unique images each time.
7. Egypt: The Great Pyramids
Yes, this may be considered a cliché travel destination, but the pyramids are still, and always will be, a wonder. Just thinking about seeing the great pyramids with my own eyes makes me giddy!
8. China: The Great Wall of China
Again, cliché. And again, just thinking about see it first hand makes me happy!
9. England: Stonehenge
Yet another cliché locale, but come on, who doesn’t like big mysterious rock formations!
10. A Tie between Peru: Machu Picchu & Mexico: The Mayan Ruins
Let’s face it, we’ve all wanted to be Indiana Jones or Lara Croft at some point in our lives. Exploring ancient ruins and hidden tombs to uncover secrets that could explain mankind’s existence and save the world! Or, more plausibly, we just think archeology is cool. Either way, there’s something alluring about ancient ruins. To see where and how people who came before us lived their lives. It‘s fascinating if you stop to think about it.
What about you, folks? Where would you like to go? What places would you like to see?
Until next time…
