“I want to go to there”

March 6th, 2010

Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany by Luiz Pires

There are so many places I want to see, I’ve been browsing and bookmarking and basically putting together travel porn (oh dear, that phrase isn’t going to be good for my blog search results is it). I’m going to Nice in may and maybe Davos in the summer, so that should satisfy me for the year. If I had unlimited funds I’d do a leisurely Trans Siberian Railway route through Russia and then travel around China and Japan. Where would you go?

  11. Julie says:

    I want to go to Iceland so badly. It looks like a really pretty place that so many people tend to forget about.


  12. Graham says:

    When I see these amazing photo’s I wish I could visit all of these places, however this takes loads of money (which I haven’t got) so I am very grateful to you for these photos.


  13. wow! We live in such a beautiful world… love the Icelandic shot in particular

  16. Dave says:

    planning to do the original route of the orient express next year. should be a blast. cheers and happy travels


  17. I’d love to see hanoi, vietnam, They say traffic is less there because the roads are filled with motorcycles which take less space on the roads.

  19. Delhi Hotels says:

    Really wonderful places. I wish to go everywhere once in my life…


  20. Noida Hotels says:

  21. Ben G says:

    You don’t need all these fancy places! I’m jealous you live by the sea in Brighton :)


  22. […] Some of the most amazing dream destinations. […]

  23. Natasha says:

    Ew. Saigon (aka Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam is SOOO much greater than Hanoi. I may be a bit biased since my family is from the south, but Hanoi was just so much less friendly and hot and boring. But another great Vietnam destination is Sapa. SO BEAUTIFUL!! And Hoi An… and Nha Trang. The whole country is beautiful! Except for Hanoi haha.


  24. Natasha says:

    Oh but other than that, wonderful places! I plan on going to India, Greece, and Morocco this summer!


  25. SARA says:

    Omg. They’re all so beautiful.


  26. Kansas Leigh says:

    I’ve been to Neuschwanstein, and I have to say it was one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places I have ever been to. You should look up Brasov, Romania. That was by far my number one favourite place I have ever been to.

    My friend Melaine and her husband Chris went to Neuschwanstein just a few months ago. She bought me a handmade doll with the picture of this castle on the apron. It is original Schneider Germany . Oh, to be able to visit, would be grand !!!!


  27. Lila says:

    It somehow reminds me of my childhood. Like dreams i used to have and that sort of thing. Like when I used to pretend, and dream of being a princess. ….. i’m a dork. ….:}


  28. Irie says:

    Never give up on your dreams! These places are gorgeous and from personal experience the real life view of Oia in Santorini is just uncomparable!! If you want to go to these places with all your heart, someday you will go, i do not doubt it. Same for myself and everybody else :)


  29. MEH says:

    You should rather go to Saltstraumen, Bodø than honningsvåg ; P
