my traveling dreams

In April, I will embark on my first trip outside the United States! I will be going to Sicily with my school, and my grandpa will be coming along with me. I keep having to pinch myself because I can’t believe that I’m actually going. I’ve wanted to travel internationally for forever, and I feel so grateful that I’m getting the chance to this year. It certainly won’t be the last time!

Now that traveling is on my mind, I found a writing prompt (that isn’t really a writing prompt…) that went something like this: list ten places you’ve been and ten places you want to go.

I’ll start off with ten places I’ve been in the US:

  1. Seattle, Washington
  2. Phoenix, Arizona
  3. Burlington, Vermont
  4. New York City
  5. Portland, Maine
  6. Anaheim, California (but only Disney Land 🙂 )
  7. Provincetown, Massachusetts
  8. Niantic, Connecticut
  9. Boston, Massachusetts
  10. Northampton, Massachusetts

And now for ten general places I’d like to visit, most of which are outside the US (and in no particular order!):

  1. Italy
  2. Nantucket, Massachusetts
  3. Iceland
  4. Haiti
  5. Sweden
  6. Australia
  7. India
  8. Thailand
  9. Peru
  10. Portland, Oregon

I feel so lucky that I’ll soon be able to cross off #1 from my list! I’m hoping to write a lot about my Sicily trip, either while I’m there or after I return. I’m currently taking Italian I at my school to prepare for it. I have taken Spanish for the past four years, so it isn’t a huge change, but I forgot how cool starting to learn a new language is! My goal is to become fluent in at least two other languages by the time I turn 30. Perhaps Italian will be one of the two!

Arrivederci!
