Wanderlust

I always find myself on Pinterest and Tumblr and end up burning with wanderlust. I do go on holiday quite a bit but my parents are more 'pool and beach' people whilst I'm more of a 'city gal'. Whilst I do love chilling by the pool with a good book(or should I say several, I'm capable of reading a book a day on holiday), I can't wait to be 'grown up' enough to travel myself and get to see all the amazing places the world has to offer with my friends. I thought I'd write this post to show you the top 5 places I want to travel to and to tell you a little bit as to why I want to go there.

1. London.

It's a little bit embarrassing to say I've never been to London, it's not like it's far away or anything. I could get on a train and be there in about 4 hours. But I've never gotten the chance to go there before, my mum visited as a teenager and didn't like it(I know right?!) so won't go with me. I think it would be the perfect place to start off travelling as I wouldn't have to deal with foreign money(although the English are ridiculously picky about accepting Scottish notes!) and it wouldn't be as expensive as leaving Britain. I'd love to do all the cheesy tourist things, go sight seeing and take photos of myself outside EVERYWHERE. I'd also love to see Wicked as it sounds absolutely amazing and I'm pretty sure London is the only place in the UK to see it.

2. Amsterdam.

I know Amsterdam has got a bit of a bad reputation, with the Red Light District and the weed in coffee shops and all that jazz but I think it's one of the most beautiful cities. There's something about all the little canal streets and the fact that everyone rides bicycles around everywhere that makes it so desirable to me. If you've read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green you will also understand why I want to go so badly. I'd love to just pop over on a ferry(although flying would probably be more comfortable) and spend a few days just wandering or cycling around. I'd also love to visit the Anne Frank Museum, I think it would be a very grounding experience.

3. Berlin.

Through primary school and secondary school I studied German for 7 years. Despite this fact I've never actually been to Germany or had the chance to try speaking German with a native speaker. Where better to start than the country's capital city. I've heard that there's a lot of cool street art(it's only graffiti if it's shit) so I'd love to be able to check out the historical and modern aspects of the city. I'd also love the go see the site of the Berlin wall and  visit Checkpoint Charlie.

4. Moscow.

If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know that my number 1 dream holiday would be visiting Moscow. There's something about Russia that's just so interesting to me, I love the complexity of the language and the history is so interesting. Not to mention the architecture, do not get me started talking about how beautiful the buildings are. The only thing is that I've heard the food isn't the best and I'm a bit of a fussy eater. This would be number one on my list but this is definitely the most adventurous out of all the places, I think you have to apply for a visa to visit and it would involve getting more than one flight. One day though!

5. Yosemite.

Yosemite National Park in California is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I'm not usually a nature person but I'd really love to visit. The thing is it's really dangerous, lots of people have died there and there are bears, like actually bears. Maybe a day trip would be best instead of camping. The last time I was camping I was about 10 and I remember watching the ice freeze up the side of the tent. Yup. Day trip.
