13 Places I’d Rather Be

//Reposted & Modified from October 2015

This post was originally posted in October 2015. After running across it the other day I decided to spruce it up and modify it a bit. Previously it had been 10 Places I’d Rather Be, now it’s 13! ? Being someone who loves to travel, but hardly has means I have a very large bucket list! I am a total dreamer, so on that note… here are 13 Places I’d rather be!

Photo Credits & Locations are listed under the following photo ?

Machu Picchu in Peru

This has been my number one place to visit for a very long time! I think I first learned about Machu Picchu in one of my Spanish classes in high school. I’ve just fallen in love with the scenery and history of the place. I’ve love to visit some time!

Florence, Italy

I’d honestly love to visit any place in Italy. It seems like such a wonderful and beautiful country. There’s so much history everywhere!

Paris, France

Ummm… Who wouldn’t rather be in Paris, France?! It’s the city of love! ❤ But, like I’ve said, it’s a city full of history! I’m kinda into the whole historical buildings and such. ?

Pettit Lake, Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho

I’ve heard that this is one of the most beautiful places in Idaho. It’s a hidden gem that not very many tourists know about. I’m hoping to visit within the next few years!! ?

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The architecture in this city is so unique! I just love the feeling of the cozy buildings along the water!! Amsterdam is definitely on my list of places to see.

Madrid, Spain

This street is absolutely spectacular! Madrid itself is a vibrant city full of Spanish culture. I’d love to get the chance to explore this city and all of it’s secrets.

Santorini, Greece

The architecture in this country just blows my mind. It’s spectacular, stunning, and romantic. It just seems so beautiful. I’ve love to photograph a place like this!

Prague, Czech Republic

I have connections with the Czech Republic and I’d love to visit and explore the culture some day. My ethnicity is very much Czech and I have a very good friend from Prague.

London, England

I’ve always, ALWAYS, wanted to go to England. London specifically has so many places to see! I would love to travel all over England some day! ❤

Lake Tekapo in New Zealand

I honestly just saw this photo and said I need to go there. I’m a lover of photography and this photo just gets me. It’s beautiful!!

Ayers Rock, Urulu in Australia

Growing up my Mom had always told me about her trip to Ayers Rock and since I’ve been absolutely obsessed! Everything about Australia has always been appealing to me!

The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland

The formations of the hexagonal volcanic stones are amazing and so intricate and unique! They provide a spectacular view and are definitely being added to my bucket list!

The Galapagos Islands

I had learned about the Galapagos Islands when I was younger. I had always been fascinated with the animals that inhibit the islands, especially the turtles!
