The Ever Expanding List

I think my list of "places to travel" grows every day. I"ll see a picture of something, or somewhere, and I'll be like "I MUST go there", and I add it to the list. It has almost reached the point of ridiculousness. Part of me is sad, because what if I never actually get to go to those places? Part of me is so excited because I think that one day I"ll be able to find a way to go to all the places I want to go. God I hope so. It never ceases to amaze me just how beautiful the world is. Sometimes even in pictures, certain places can take your breath away. And if takes your breath away from a picture, I can't even imagine actually being there.

One day, I have to see this castle. This castle looks as if it is just floating around in the sky, waiting for visitors. MUST SEE IT.

This is one of those took my breath away pictures. Lavender fields in France. Oh my god. I have no words.

Again with the taking away of the breath. This one is in Canada, so at least it is feasible that I will see it some point in the (hopefully near) future.

I love travelling. I love going to new places, and experiencing the different ways people live. It gives me a different perspective on life, and I have found one of the most important things that travel has done for me, is remind me to slow down and appreciate things. Take my time, let it all sink in, nod, appreciate and say, wow. I try and use that philosophy every new place I go, as well as in my everyday life. Travelling reminds me just how good I have it, and how fortunate I am to be able to get out of my everyday life and learn about other people's everyday lives. That way of thinking also is useful in my day to day existence. It's easy to forget, especially when I'm stressing and fretting over something stupid, what a beautiful place I live in. It's gorgeous here. I often placate my constant yearning to travel with explorations of the area in which I live.

Beauty. For now, at least until I can save enough money to take a trip, views like this will do. Right in my own backyard too.
