Three places…

Posted on Saturday, August 29, 2015 in Other

In a really annoying tv show on Swedish tv, that my mom keeps watching every evening, they let a celebrity come to the studio and talk about their favorite places to travel to. Though I hate this show, I thought I’d do a post about three favorite places I’ve been to and three more that I’d like to visit some day. Just because…

1. Estonia – I really like Estonia. Whenever I go there, I feel I have travelled a few years into the future. It’s clean, pretty, with nice, helpful people and plenty of interesting things to see. And they have so many wifi hotspots, which is always great for a tourist far away from home.

2. Jämtland (which is a region in the north of Sweden, well strictly speaking it’s in ‘centra’ Sweden about half way up our long country). I used to live here as a child, but I have also gone back there to visit (also as a child). It’s breathtakingly beautiful (just like my home region West Gothia, though in a different way). There’s interesting sightseeing, beautiful scenery and since I used to live there and at such a young age, I was very happy there. Just seeing the images makes me feel a little better.

3. France/Paris. Since I’m interested in history and some of the French culture it’s always fun to do all the sightseeing. I’d also like to see more of France, especially the northern half.

Three places I’d love to visit some day:

1. Bhutan. I’m really interested in Tibetan culture and Bhutanese culture, as far as I know, is very similar to Tibetan. There are plenty of interesting buildings and temples. The scenery is breattaking (but on a whole different level than in Jämtland). I also find the Bhuddist culture fascinating. As far as I can tell, this small country has succeeded in both keeping and holding on to their old customs and managed to enter the 21 century.

2. Sri Lanka. The scenery is (as far as I can tell) beautiful, the culture interesting and I believe most people speak at least some English. I have read that the hotels offer delicious breakfasts consisting entirely of fruit. Here too, there are plenty of interesting old buildings to visit.

3. Italy. Perhaps I don’t even need to go into details about this country. Most people have probably been here several times and find it boring by now. I haven’t been to Italy even once and I would still really like to go. This may sound like more of the same, but I think the scenery, especially in Tuscany and Umbria, is beautiful. Naturally, there are plenty of interesting history (and archaeology) to check out.
