We all have dreams. Me too, despite that I have been able to see much of the world, even I have an infinite wishlist with spots I dream about. I will occasionally share my travel wishlist with you, ranging from countries to cities and from hotels to activities. All pieces of Earth and special places I once want to see with my own eyes.
Travelwish #1: Winter sports in France
This is quite achievable, right? I have to admit: I have never had something with winter sports. Not even with winter itself, actually. Sometimes I was in snowy places, but I always preferred a sunny holiday. However, I was getting more curious after enthusiastic stories of friends and fellow bloggers. When I stood on a mountain full of snow in Poland last year with my boyfriend I realized that it’s not at all so bad to go on a cold trip. Beautiful even. Charming. And snowboarding seems really fantastic to me. Maybe we’ll go try this one day. The French Alps are wonderful, I have been there quite regularly during the summer. In the winter it turns into a winter sports paradise and I came across a particularly romantic town I’d like to visit. Now is a good time to go, it’s a lot quieter after the holidays and the sun shines longer. You can enjoy a winter sports trip until the end of May and in the spring many fun festivals are organised, ideal! I would like to explore the French slopes. So I discovered this site about skiing in France in the spring and now I want to travel to the village of Megève, this authentic village lies in the middle of a beautiful ski resort in France. Extremely good restaurants such as L’Ékrin are located here, but what I really find amazing is the way you get to the piste: by horse and cart. Romantic. Or the village of Châtel, where high-rise has been banned and only wooden cabins and ancient chapels are allowed. Also a husky tour seems very special to me. Warm cuddles under a blanket in a sled, petting dogs and throwing snowballs as the sun sinks slowly behind the mountains. Many cheese bites, sipping a vin chaud together (warm French red wine) around a fire after snowboarding, dining in an igloo, sleeping in a yurt, enjoying a hot sauna (and then making a snow angel!)
…Yes, I want to go together on a winter sports trip to France. Even though I’ll need a winter coat then.
Travelwish #2: Japan
Japan. And then the fun news: I’ll be going here in november! It’s a little countdown, but Japan has already been on my travel wishlist for a long time and finally I’ll travel to the extraordinary Japan this year. I think this country speaks to everyone’s imagination. Ancient traditions, temples and cherry blossom. Gardens and tea, port cities and volcanoes, pilgrimage routes and hot springs. The dance of the geisha. Kyoto with it’s Geisha and ancient traditions, more than two thousand temples and shrines. Tokyo, which gives me an incredible impression even though I am not really a big fan of cities. The Henro pilgrimage route with her eighty-eight temples. Aso, one of the largest volcanoes in the world. Miyajima. The infinite paths with cherry blossom. Nature in Sandankyo with its rock formations. White beaches in Okinawa. There is so much to discover, and it is very fascinating to me. We unfortunately won’t be able to stay for a very long time and we will focus especially on Tokyo, Kyoto and everything in between, but I can’t wait to go to the land of the rising sun.
Travelwish #3: Tasmania (Australia)
Yes. That is a bit further away. And I as purebred travel blogger have never been to that corner of the world. Such a shame. The point is that when I would go in that direction, I would like to go for a long time. At least three months. That is a feeling that I have and I hope I will soon to be able to go on a long, really long trip. Tasmania is famous for its many national parks, green rugged landscapes and the great “Tasmanian devil”. The island is mainly untouched and pure, has beautiful nature, waterfalls and mountains. The coastline of Tasmania consists of mountains with some white sandy beaches. Diving and snorkeling must be fantastic over there in the colorful marine life. The Tasmanian flora and fauna are unique. It’s really a rough State and it is considered as one of the most beautiful parts of Australia, while it is often skipped. It’s still incredibly pure and real. Here you can discover animals, birds and plants you can’t come across anywhere else in the world. And. I. Want. To. Stroke. A. Tasmanian. Devil. And cuddle a koala.
