I have been lucky enough to visit several countries including Mexico, Canada, Australia, Sweden, and Germany, but there have always been places I wanted to visit. These are the top 10 places I want to visit.
For the longest time I have been wanting to visit Japan. In high school I started learning Japanese on my own and I even have a tattoo of the kanji for love with cherry blossoms on my shoulder. I want to be able to visit the big cities like Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara as well as several islands including Ōkunoshima (Rabbit Island), Tashirojima (Cat Island). I would also love to see Mount Fuji, Matsumoto Castle, and the Buddhist temples.
After Japan, France is the next country I want to visit. I have taken 3 years of French classes in high school and a year of French in college where I had class every day for 6 hours a week. I think I can still understand some French, and I would love to visit Paris, the Palace of Versailles, Marseille, and Mont Saint-Michel. Best France Vacations has a great post on French Wine Regions To Visit, and I would also to visit a French vineyard.
Bornholm is a Danish island that is known for the round churches. I would like to visit the island to see the churches, castle ruins, museums, and beaches.
Since moving to Denmark, I have been wanting to visit the bordering countries. I have been to both Sweden and Germany, and now I want to visit Norway. I mainly want to visit Oslo and Bergen.
As I just mentioned, I have been to Germany, but I have only been to Berlin, I would also like to visit Munich and Neuschwanstein Castle.
In college I took a course in classical mythology that mainly focused on Greek and Roman mythology. I think it would be amazing to visit the ancient ruins in Athens and Rhodes as well as go to Santorini. Greece is also on Rebecca’s 5 Dream Destinations list because she loves Greek history too.
For the Roman mythology side, I want to visit Rome, as well as Venice and Sicily.
#8 The Netherlands
Another European country I would like to visit is the Netherlands. I mainly want to visit Amsterdam, The Hague, and Arnhem.
I have only been to Heathrow Airport when I have been flying back and forth from Denmark and the US, so I would love to visit London. To figure out which attractions I want to visit in London, I will refer to the posts on The London Way.
#10 Czech Republic
My great-grandmother was born in the Czech Republic, so I think it would be fun to see where she grew up and also visit Prague.
