I don’t understand people who are content with staying in one place their whole life. I want to travel. I want to get out of Missouri, get on a plane, and see the world. I want to live in different cities and study abroad and go explore new and foreign places.
I look at my parents who have never been out of the continental United States, and I fear their stationary lives will continue onto me. I’ve been on vacation once, to New York City, and I absolutely loved it. The itch to travel has been overwhelming since that trip, bubbling up inside me over the last 3 and a half years.
If I could go anywhere in the world with nothing to restrain me, these would be the top destinations on my list (in no particular order):
1. London, England
2. Paris, France
3. Reykjavik, Iceland
4. Seattle, Washington
6. Los Angeles, California
7. Chicago, Illinois
