I was cleaning up, and found an old piece of paper – I had written a top ten list of countries to visit. It was a bit funny, because I have visited some of the countries on that list since I wrote it. But it gave me inspiration to write a new one… the question is; should I include those countries I already have visited, or should I write some new destinations? I mean, I’ve always dreamt of visiting Iceland, and now I’ve been there – because my plane couldn’t land in the Faroes. Does those hours in Iceland count? I don’t think so 😉 Anyway – the list of countries is the same – here goes:

– Canada
– Iceland
– Ireland
– Scotland
– England
– New Zealand
– Australia
– Italy
– India

And here is a bit about why I’m dreaming of these places. Some may have noticed one thing all of them have in common: beautiful landscapes and they all have coastlines. And those of you who know me well, know that I love hiking, sailing, kayaking, fishing.. anything that has something to do with nature and beautiful sceneries. I’d like to say a few words about some of them…

Theres one major problem with Canada and the USA – they’re freaking big! Where to start? What to see? It would take at least two or three weeks to zip around, and see just some of it! But again – mountains, lakes, forests… and awesome fishing spots.. Canada has it all. One big dream is to go kayaking somewhere.. and now I have to stop writing, or I forget everything about this blog, and purcase tickets instead!

Before I met my boyfriend, I was sitting with some important papers – if I signed them, and sent them, I would have ended up at a university in Iceland, and I would live there for 6 months maybe more. The rough nature, volcanoes, geysers (is that the right word in English? lol!), mountains, glaciers.. But then – while considering all that – I met this incredible, warm hearted Faroese man, who grabbed my hands and my heart, asking me to be his woman. Soo I chose to study him instead, and that was one of the better choices I made. But I still havn’t been to Iceland for a vacation.

Ireland has always fascinated me – incredible landscape (and people, I’ve heard). Some people say, that the Faroe Islands and Ireland are similar to each other.. grass covered basalt cliffs, and all that.. Which reminds me; the first inhabitants in the Faroe Islands were Irish! So my boyfriend may even have Irish blood in him, lol. I’m going to Ireland next summer, to meet a fellow Hodgson fan Mick.. what can I say? I simply can’t wait!!

Take a jumbo cross the water… yes I’d like to see America. But again… where to begin? Give me three months off work, and I’ll travel around the states and have lots of fun. The trip could begin in Ohio, since some of my relatives lives there. And then I’ll have to meet all my internet friends, that I’ve met over the years 😀

I found this blogthing, and I must say it’s true what it says.. even though I travel for adventure, not to relax all the time. 😉

Your Travel Personality Is: Easygoing

You’re not one to make lots of plans when you travel. You just follow whatever path seems right.
