Fun Facts Friday: Top Ten Places I want to Visit

So some of these places I have visited, and some of them I haven't.  But this is my list so I can do what I want.  

1.  Disney World

I am a child, clearly, because I've been to Disney World twice is recent history and yet I am still desperate to go back again. In fact, we're making plans to go back again. I just love it there; It's the happiest place on earth.  


2.  Oxford, UK

The second place on this list I have actually visited.  I miss those winding streets.  There are so many things I meant to do while I was there that I just... didn't.  So I want to go stay in a hostel and visit the museums I never went to, and also the ones I did.  Relive the golden days.  Please.  


3. Dublin, Ireland

The capitol of Ireland.  It is full of beautiful statues and parks, museums, shops, and pubs.  And drunk Irishmen.  I would love to go for St. Patrick's Day some year.  Meet my Irish roots and see the rolling hills of green.  Also, I would love to find a leprechaun and get a pot of gold.  


4.  Nice, France

Nice (pronounced "nees"), is on the south coast of France and has white sand beaches and azure blue waters on the Mediterranean.  The weather is apparently lovely almost always, and there is a Matisse museum, plus excellent shopping and places to visit.  


5.  Bruges, Belgium

Bruges is a canaled city in Belgium.  It is used frequently for historical films.  There are awesome museums, and even a hotel that was once a palace.  I would love to go around Christmas time when they have a wonderful Christmas market, complete with ice skating rink.  


6.  Paris, France

The Eiffel Tower, the Lourve, Notre Dame, The Paris opera house, and French pastries.  A stereotypical dream destination but I still want to go.  Sounds like fun, don't you think?  Maybe a nice French musician will sucumb to my American charms.  


7.  Venice, Italy 

So Venice is comprised of a group of small islands, full of canals, and is sinking into the sea.  So I would like to go see it now before it becomes one with the ocean.  Preferably with my imaginary husband by my side for a romantic gondola ride.  


8.  St. Petersburg, Russia

I want to see those gorgeous onion domes for myself.  I want to see the old palace and brave the cold of Northern Russia.  Maybe get a fur coat.  


9.  Edinburgh, Scotland

The Capitol city of Scotland, full of old buildings, winding streets, beautiful churches and museums, pubs, shops, etc.  Many wonderful sites to see.  


10. Chernobyl/Pripyat, Ukraine

I know this makes me a freak of nature but I really want to go see the falling apart city and watch nature taking over what man has created.  There's even a broken down carnival!
