Places I’d love to go before I’m old...  
These are kind of in order, but I want to see each and their surrounding areas pretty damn bad! There are some beautiful sights to see and some really lovely hotels to stay at. It took my breath away just to look at pictures of the Grande Bretagne in Athens. Barcelona is particularly gorgeous, as is Stockholm and Dublin has unbeatable charm! They all seem amazing :) Hopefully I'll get to cross a few off soon.

  1. Stockholm, Sweden
  2. Dublin, Ireland
  3. Amsterdam, Netherlands
  4. Berlin, Germany
  5. Heiligendamm, Germany
  6. Krakow, Poland
  7. Zurich, Switzerland
  8. Adelaide, Australia
  9. Sydney, Australia
  10. Wellington, New Zealand
  11. Barcelona, Spain
  12. Athens, Greece
  13. Prague, Czech Republic
  14. Copenhagen, Denmark
  15. Hong Kong, China / Tokyo, Japan
Any advice, suggestions, things I have to see?

Just like everywhere else :) If you live there, it's not that interesting because it's just home. I'm always asked how California is and told how much people want to visit and live here and I always wonder why! But I like the hotels I found and some of the old architecture and history, too.

I think you should also visit moscow:)
Randidusty_memories on October 2nd, 2007 07:30 pm (UTC)

supc4ik: magicsupc4ik on October 2nd, 2007 07:36 pm (UTC)

I see you plan on touring the USA extensively LOL.

I'd also like to see Stockholm, Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin, Sydney, Prague, and Copenhagen. My list would also include Reykjavik, New York City, Glasgow, and Helsinki.

My favourite cities I've been to are Vancouver, St. Petersburg (Russia), Cologne, and London.

I´m from Czech Republic and Praque is really unique. I´ve been at many places of Europe and I would like to travel to USA and some island in the Asia.

I've never been much for traveling, but the first 5 on your list are Dream Vacations. Sweden and Germany are just so beautiful.

Now..I don't see any Italian city and it's a shame because NOBODY should live all their life without visiting at least 1 Italian city (!!), so I'd suggest Rome (at least), or Naples (ok, I'm partial as I live there but it's worth visting, believe me!), or Florence, or Venice...:)

P.S. I've been to Athens..it's great! :) I've also visited some parts of Germany and it is interesting too! :)

I lived in Krakow for a semester (and Warsaw for another) and it's just a fantastic city ( I consider it a second home, actually). The salt mines in Wieliczka are a must-see, as is Wawel Castle, I think, and the Communism Tour of Nowa Huta is probably in my Top Five of Interesting Tours I've Been On (and I've been on a lot). Mostly though, Krakow's just a gorgeous cityin which to walk around. Poland in general is just a really beautiful country (I'd encourage trips to Gdansk/Sopot/Gdynia and Warsaw as well), and the people are splendid.

I haven't been to Zurich, but I'd love to (actually, I'd love to go to all the places on your list, even the ones I've already been to [which are only Prague and Berlin, as it were]), but Bern, Switzerland is one of the most gorgeous little cities I've ever seen.
Wouldn't you like to knowblondychik1 on October 2nd, 2007 11:35 pm (UTC)
Awesome picks. I would love to visit all those places too. Hey! We should totally start a LiveJournal vacation group. Who wouldn't want to tour the world with people they only know through their computer screen? haha

It's awesome that you wanna come to Australia, it's an awesome place. I recommend going to the centre, and seeing Ayers Rock. That's something that I'd love to do.

i´m from czech republic and I´ve been to prague more than 10000000 times :D trust me.. you should rather go to any other place in Europe...
my fav. place is surely London
********accionargles on October 3rd, 2007 08:11 pm (UTC)
im surprised France isnt on your list! lol, but Hong Kong is a really nice place to go - there's a lot of bargains =) but you must watch out for some people who sell stuff to you. my dad got ripped off from buying a camera. lol he was really mad.
Maniac: breatheeluminat on October 4th, 2007 11:56 am (UTC)
why uk is not on the list?
pretty_memoriespretty_memories on October 5th, 2007 03:28 am (UTC)
WOW, really really amazing places.I think that when you arrive at those places you forget all the bad stuff.
zvezdy_y_nebozvezdy_y_nebo on October 7th, 2007 02:06 am (UTC)
I think you should move Prague to the top of your list. I went there once, and it's beautiful. Absolutely amazing, and I would have loved to live there. I almost did, in fact. Anyway, if you ever go, be sure to visit the 12 Apostles Castle thingy (duh!)

PS- I LOVE your resources, so I thought I'd post.

I'm a fan of your icons and I wondered if you'd like to join my icon sharing community. ^_^


Oh and I'd love to travel but most the places I want to go to are in Asia. ^__^
Helene: Rosie Huntington-Whiteleyanothersilence on October 24th, 2007 03:13 pm (UTC)
I live in Denmark, actually near Copenhagen (15 minutes)..
I suggest to see:
- The Little Mermaid (whose head has been cut off several times, lol). I don't know why it is so interesting, but it's probably because I live here. :P
- Tivoli which is an amusement park. A very funny place to be.. (Not open the whole year) It is open summer and winter and sometimes in some vacations ;) If you don't like to try wild things there are always booths and shops. Very pleasant.

All right.. There are other places but I can't remember anywhere else right now :)

I'm in love with your icons and other works and that's why I just friended you ;)

You should really visit Brazil. It's very beautiful here, everywhere, every state. It's a must-go :)
Aureliaaurelia on November 21st, 2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
I really, REALLY want to go to Brazil, hopefully in 2008 or 09. It does look beautiful.
Aureliaaurelia on November 21st, 2007 06:56 pm (UTC)
I was born in Prague (I could look at the astronomical clock forever) and lived in Ireland. You definitely want to go to both and you DEFINITELY want to stay at Grande Bretagne and see as much of Athens as you can. Berlin isn't as exciting as it looks in pictures, well it wasn't for me. Other parts of Germany weren't bad. Barcelona is gorgeous. Amsterdam, lol, it's an experience.

I'm going to Wellington next year and seeing a lot NZ. I'm really excited to see it, looks beautiful.

Also, I agree, you should go to Moscow. At least once when it's snowing and then when it's not.

Prague and Berlin are pretty spectacular... Dresden, Germany is also pretty amazing...

I live in a small town about an hour south of Stockholm and I have been there many times since I worked there for a year.
You really should visit Sweden sometime. It's really beautiful, especially in the summer.
I haven't seen nearly as much of Stockholm as I would like.

Have you checked out this site? http://www.stockholmtown.com/templates/page____9937.aspx

It's a great site with a lot of interesting information, beautful pictures and even a virtual tour of Stockholm. I really liked that one.

i hope you can find something you like on the site and I really hope you get to visit Stockholm someday in the near future.
