As with most spending a semester abroad, I’ll be taking advantage of being in the UK and so close to the European mainland to do some traveling. I’ve also had developed a case of wanderlust and it’s only grown since I’ve arrived in London. I did have a bit of reality check though–I will definitely not be able to visit everywhere I would like to. Just a reason to come back, no? After rearranging my schedule quite a bit, I’ve come up with a (hopefully) definitive list of some of the places I’ll be going.
The Travel List
Colchester, Oxford, Cardiff, York, Brighton, Vinna
Scotland, Amsterdam, Paris,
Santorini Greece (already booked–eek!)
END OF TERM
Munich, Prague, Budapest, Paris & Southern France
Looking at it all laid out, I’ve realized it is quite a list. It’s hard for me not to shake my head at myself when I realize how many places I originally had listed to visit. I tried to pick places that would be wallet friendly but when I was laying out my budget, I realized I’d be spending just about all the money I saved up for this semester. But I guess that was the point, wasn’t it? I’d much rather spend on experiences rather than things. (Although I’m sure I’ll come home with a few things as well–I don’t have that much self control).
Ah well, I truly think I’ll always want to travel and experience things. It’s probably accurate to say that this “case” of wanderlust is a permanent one.
