Where Do You Want To Visit?
« on: October 18, 2017, 08:45:39 AM »
I've never cared about the world too much until a few months ago, and now I care a lot more and wish I could go places. But I've only ever been to 1 other province and 2 states, sort of. Don't really count Wisconsin, I've not been in the heart of it. Never even been on a plane...So I like to think now. Where would ya'll like to visit?

For me #1 above anywhere else in the world is Finland. I want to see the towns where my grandparents where born and see as much as possible in a country that is perhaps not too exciting but I wish to feel more connected to. I only recently learned how truly great the country and it's history is. Finland is also the only place besides Canada where I have relatives.

Then Italy for the other half of my family origins. I'm sure there is a lot more to see and eat there. But Italy is you know, Italy. Finland is more appealing to me, but if I see one I gotta see the other. I'm very curious about Russia, I'd like to see Volgograd with that monster statue the Motherland Calls. I never hear about anyone going to Russia...it looks like a hard place to visit but a nice land. Poland would be next on my list, see Warsaw. Poland and Polish people are cool. New Zealand would be nice, looks like a wonderful place and a lot nicer then the land beside it. I mean we all love Australians but the country...

You know the weeb in me kicks in, but I'd be too embarrassed in Japan. You know The Manimal would blow all his money on Love Live stuff, but it'd be nice to be invisible and see some major cities. I feel it'd be unenjoyable to be a tourist there. Mongolia would be alright. Add Cuba, one to spite Americans since they can't go, and two for more curiosity. But really, I don't think it'd be so nice.

I'd like to see way more of Canada (just not Quebec or Saskatchewan). The North interests me a lot, even if it's cold, I like the low population there...must be nice in a certain way. I want to go to Whitehorse, Iqaluit and Yellowknife. Newfoundland as well, and PEI. Unlike everything else here, this is actually possible one day. No ridiculous airfare, just long ass drives.

Add Greece for Anthens. The Netherlands! Dutch are cool, good chips those Old Dutch, and the windmills and wooden shoes. Denmark for true Lego land. Norway is also cool, I'd go there. I would say Spain but haha. No. Not in today's state. I might say the UK but haha. No. Not in today's state. Well maybe Scotland would be okay. That's my over long post, I listed a lot, Finland is the only real life goal, everything else is nice thought...how bout ya'll.



(Less reading version. Finland, Italy, Russia, Poland, New Zealand, Japan, Mongolia, Cuba, Greece, The Netherlands, Denmark, & Norway)

If we are going down with family origins, then England, France, Ireland, and Germany would be on my list. I wouldn't mind visiting Netherlands since we have a good relationship with them and to see the tulips. Denmark would be next, but I might not resist the temptation to fuel the Whisky War we have with them. Finally, I would make my final visit from Europe in Belgium.

I next trip would be Australia, and possible New Zealand, during the winter season in Canada.

I'm too sure if I want to visit Japan yet, tbh.  :hmm:

I definitely need to take a longer trip back to London sometime, and see some of the other sights in England/the British isles.

Going by family history, the British isles would do for a good half of it, but that leaves Germany and Croatia on the list as well.

Someday too, I want to do a full Roman history tour, all 2000 years. By which I mean a trip to see all I can in Rome, and another for Istanbul/Constantinople/Byzantium.

Honestly though, I could just circle the whole map and label it "places I want to visit."

Wouldn't mind trying out Canada or Australia. Maybe even the USA but then I'd have to choose from all those states  :hmm: I wonder which state would be the least urban and most rural...

Wyoming has the lowest population density of the lower 48 at least. Alaska might be lower, but at that point you've skipped right past 'rural' and into 'frozen wilderness'.

@greenbeverage I guess go to Utah. I don’t know why you want rural areas.

If I had to go anywhere in America besides the 11th province of Minnesota I'd go to Maine first. In general stick to the New England area. Of course I'd go to Kansas (if such was possible) if we did a Happy Hour Meet-Up Part III. and South Dakota to so I can look at some rocks for a bit. Atlanta, New Orleans and then Memphis for Graceland.

I'd stay the hell away from California, Nevada, New York and Florida. Wouldn't go if you payed all my travel fare to any of those places. Pig states of greed. Not a slight on the people from those places though.

Of course I'd rather save money and go to Finland then any place anywhere, I have priorities...but you know hypothetical/what is more possible. Easier to go downstairs then to a different building...that is a weird way of putting it but ya.

I was actually invited to go with a friend to Germany for a weekend this summer if I can pay my way. She and her partner have tickets to M'era Luna, which is only the largest goth rock festival in the world. Still trying to see if I can pool together money and go to that. I'll see what financial aid refund money does and hope for the best as far as Christmas from my family, and my birthday is before the trip, so hopefully I can get twenty dollars here, fifty dollars there...The hard part is the plane and the housing. I can eat on ten dollars a day easily.

But, if not this year, one year I will be at M'era Luna or Wave Gotik Treffen, dammit.

I'd also actually really love to visit Australia. Unlike most of you it seems, I prefer heat to chill. I mean, I live in the good ol' American South and can still sometimes go out in double layers of clothing in summer.
