Hey hey it's Wednesday!! For the Wednesday Wonderfuls today it's all about adventures! I seem to have what my mom calls the "travel lust" so I have a lot of places I want to go and a lot of things I want to do. According to my mom my Grandma also have the travel lust as well so I must have got it from her. She has been to many more places than me but I have plenty of time to do everything I want to do. I absolutely loved having her with us on our trip around Europe and it was amazing that she was able to out walk all of the other people in the group and she was the oldest in our group! I am sure she will love this post! Maybe not all the places and things I would like to do though...
This all comes from a book that I got for Christmas this year which is put out by National Geographic, which is one of my personal favorite when learning about places to travel to. The book is Journey's of a Lifetime 500 of the World's Greatest Trips. It is so informative and interesting and it even puts the trips into categories such as trips to take on foot or by road. I LOVE it!!! So let's talk about the top 10 adventures I want to go on one day from this book! And as usual they are not in any particular order. And all the titles come straight from the book.
1. Eastern Caribbean Cruise! "A cruise through the breathtaking waters of the Caribbean offers luxury, shopping, and outdoor fun." I have been on a cruise to the northern islands of the Caribbean but going on this one would be wonderful!! You get to cruise through all the Virgin Islands and the Leeward Islands where the water is just so amazing and clear! My parents once went to St. Thomas when I was younger and they left me behind. I would love to go see that island now. Booking a cruise at the last minute is likely to save you money and most of the cruises are about a week. Can we say FABULOUS?!? The picture below is St. Thomas.
2. Waterways of the Tsars! "Experience the grandeur of Imperial Russia as you cruise along the waterways of St. Petersburg." I never though I would want to ever go to Russia until reading about this trip and looking at the architecture of St. Petersburg. It looks so different from anything that we see here or that is over in Europe. I would also love to learn more about the history behind Russia. This cruise is only a few hours long but I would love to walk around and just sight see around the city!
3. The Romantic Road of Bavaria! "With castle-crowned mountains and glorious churches and palaces, this route explores the heartland of German fairy tales, music, and art." This is my ideal driving trip in Europe! I have seen parts of Germany from the Rhine River but I would love to just be driving through the country sides and seeing all the castles up on the the hills. Since I was little I have wanted to live in a castle like a princess. For me I would totally pick out which one I would live in if I got to live in it. This goes from about mid Germany down to the border of Austria and would take about a week which would be totally fine with me!
4. The Bolshoi Express! "Ride Russia in style on the Grand Express between St. Petersburg and Moscow." This one I would do at the same time as the cruise around St. Petersburg. I love seeing the countryside's of different countries and this would take me right through the country between the two biggest cities in Russia. And I have always wanted to experience sleeping overnight on a train for whatever reason and with this I would be able to do that because the train ride allows one night on board but I would stay more time in each city so that I could see the cultures and historical places!
