Well…. It’s once again been a long time. Honestly, this whole having a blog, doesn’t seem to be my strong suit. After all we are in March and this is my first post of the year. Kinda lame, if you ask me. Not really surprising that no-one reads this.
I don’t even read what I write. Then again. Who would read… Expect academics, literists, actors, students… Okay the list could go on. I read. Could be why I don’t bother spending time posting. I want to know what others have to say. Boy, do some people have a lot to say. It’s not just reading thou.
It’s also taking the time to listen. I, being the awesome granddaughter, I am spend an afternoon a week with my Grandmother. It’s only a little thing. I probably annoy her. Lots. I am good at that. Point is, just doing that little thing can show you a different side of things.
Grandmothers, and possibly grandfathers, are full of fascinating stories. Mine tells me what happened over the week. Now and again a story of day’s past will creep in. Stories like the nuns at the school, coming into her backyard and taking my dad. Only for a short while. I told dad about that story. It kinda felt awesome telling my dad something of his childhood.
So, this is my post. If I stick to normal routine. The only one of the year….
Okay, I said I wanted to make this a travel blog. Only Problem is, I’m still living with my dad and haven’t done anything to start traveling. Fear not, I have many, many places in mind as to where I want to go first. So today I’m listing the five different countries I want to travel to. Readers are welcome to tell me which place I should choose first.
Italy, the land of pizza, and full of historical interest. From julius Caesar to Michelangelo. This is one Country that a history enthusiast like myself can really get into. Old ruins and of Course the food, pizza and pasta may be the most common known, but still. Who wouldn’t travel to try and eat everything.
2. United Kingdom:
I watch far too many shows based in England, all of which show the most beautiful landscape ever. Rolling green hills and Stunning Architecture. It is filled with a variety of things to do. From seeing plays on a cliff by the sea to dog friendly pubs. Could never be bored discovering a new activity in this place.
One word: Anime. Well, there is also the culture of the place. Little things like Ghaisas and tea ceremony add to the charm and allure of these place.
This one is more a family reason rather than anything it offers, my nan having been born there before making the way to Australia. It does still offer a lot to see, the windmill are certainly a must. Plus who would like to stay in a country that’s officially below sea level. I do wonder how that actually works…
5. United States of America:
Mixed feelings about the U.S of A, with questionable government choices and shootings all over the news. It almost seems safer to travel else where. But with cities like New York and Las Vegas, the appeal of such a place remains strong. Visiting the Grand Canyon would be nice as well.
Well, hope you liked my little list. Here’s hoping I get off my ass soon.
