As a child I always visioned that I’d be traveling around the world.
Oh how I was wrong.
As a child I did not realise that travelling cost money.
So I got a job… but then, this weird annoying, thing called “direct debits” decided to enter my life and money became quite hard to keep hold of.
Urh. Being an adult.
So here is a list of places that I would like to visit.
It is also the result of £100 coming out of wage and straight into my savings each month, so that one day, this responsible adult can actually do a bit of traveling. Unless I do something stupid like crash my car and end up using all that money…

I know, it’s like the most typical thing for any young adult to say where they want to go. But I grew up watching Friends. Is that a good reason to go?
It’s just always been one of those places that I want to visit.
I want to sit in Central Park and watch the world dance right in front of my eyes.

I am half Turkish. I once spent 6 weeks in Bodrum and it was so amazing. It was where my love of opera originated. I saw Jose Carreras in Turgutreis Marina, I think I sat in awe for the entire show. The man did one song after another. Simply incredible.
And well, now I want to explore more of my Turkish heritage.

If you’ve ever read my blog before you’ll know I have a deep love for opera, I mean, you totally wouldn’t think it, but yep this guy loves opera and classical music.
So I totally want to be a cliché and go to Rome and listen to some amazing classical music.
What more can a 21 year old guy ask for?!
So, I kind of have already been… twice… but I want to go again.
I love Amsterdam, it has to be one of my favourite places.
And it’s not what you’re automatically thinking… I know you’re out there. Thinking. Well, it is a little, because hey, it’s legal, but it’s also just how amazing the place is. I never tire of walking around the canals, or the museums. They have some seriously incredible museums.
And I kind of like the cafes. Just a little bit.

The bad thing is, I genuinely do not know why I want to visit Peru. I don’t know any of the history of the place, I don’t know anything currently about it. I simply do not know a thing about Peru.
But… It’s pretty. Like super pretty. The scenery has just always been a draw to me. Something I’ve wanted to experience with my own eye.
So, there you have it, 5 places this skint 21 year old blogger wants to visit.
In my dreams… in my dreams.
