Twelve Places I Want Go

I love airports.

Airports mean travel.

For me, travel means adventure.

And, I love adventure (see my last post) 1.

I am also an avid photographer 2. I am a shameless user of Instagram where I share my photos and follow hundreds of accounts of national parks, exceptional landscape photographers, and world travelers. On Instagram, I keep a collection of photos entitled “Places I Want to Go.” When I am feeling restless, I look through the pictures and envision the trips that I will eventually take.

As of this posting, here are a few of my dream travel destinations — without explanation. Just a list. Just for fun. In no particular order.

  1. The Faroe Islands
  2. Malawi, Africa
  3. Iceland
  4. Edinburgh, Scotland
  5. Irkutsk, Russia (Lake Baikal)
  6. The Oregon Coast (I’ve been there, but a LONG time ago)
  7. Lisbon, Portugal
  8. Amsterdam, Netherlands
  9. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska
  10. Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota
  11. Bergen, Norway
  12. Assisi, Italy

There are literally hundreds more, but I just decided to list twelve. Are any of these on your travel list?

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
