david and i want to travel. we have ideas WAY bigger than our bank account. we are working on our first trip right now, but we can't seem to narrow down where we want to go. but anyone who would like to donate to these trips is more than welcome to - ha! anyway, i figured i would make a list. if i got to choose anywhere in the world - where would i want to go? so here's the top 5...
i know its silly, but its a HUGE part of david's heritage. i have been proudly adopted into a swedish family and i love it...the horses, the smörgåsbord, uff da!, the motherland of ikea...what's not to love?
4. moscow, russia
here's the deal with russia - it is vast (duh). there are so many places to see...the sight of the imperial murders in ekatrinburg, the transsiberian railroad, the crimea, etc. but moscow has more in one place. its not europe but not asia. its all its own.
3. the united kingdom
now, seeing as how i am narrowing these down to just 5, i hope that you excuse me combining 3 countries into one. but oh, how i would love to visit the UK, especially scotland. ah, real scotch in scotland...seriously? followed by guiness in an irish pub. could it get any better? plus the fact that the whole place is freakin' gorgeous (as long as your goal is not a killer tan).
ah - home of the amazing cherry blosom! this one has way more meaning for david, but i would love to go here also. we would of course have to visit yokahama - david's childhood home for a while. but also go to the countryside and coast. not to mention i like japanese food way better than chinese...
1. prague, czech republic
one word: bohemia. not to mention it is one of the oldest cities in europe. what history major could turn this place down?
