Travel History


Neuro

2584 views

So I'm thinking, since this is a diverse community filled with people from all over the world, I'd create another word barf of a blog revolving around travel.

 

The following are places that I have visited around this wonderful world. The reviews are purely from personal experience. In no particular order:


Sweden. This country is beautiful inside and out. The architecture is amazing with the cobble stones and yellow buildings. There are some awesome museums there and the boat ride is a must in the summer otherwise prepare to freeze in the winter. There are charming hotels located everywhere and things are walking distance, but transportation is fairly easy to navigate. The country side is beautiful. My favorite are the Falu Red style homes. Many Swedes tend to keep to themselves and their social circles most of the time. Knowing the language can help when visiting smaller towns (obvi). The food is delicious, fresh, and healthy. Sweden plays a big role in science and invention. You may have heard of the Nobel Prizes. Or dynamite and Ikea. There’s this thing called “fika”! It’s like a coffee hour, where you relax and chat over some pastries and coffee. Prepare to get fat. Financially, you’ll want to save up a great deal if you plan on visiting here. You can see the northern lights in the...northern parts. I want to visit northern Sweden sometime and attend a reindeer race.


Norway. There is literally a bald border line between Norway and Sweden-no trees nothing. Otherwise it all looks the same- green forests and beautiful people. Until you get to the coast. Fjords will blow your mind. If you like seafood, you're in luck.


Thailand. The rural villages I saw were life changing. Riding elephants near Chang Mai was amazing. You’ve most definitely heard about this country’s diverse selection of food. If not, you’re in for a piece of heaven when you visit. The CURRY. VEGGIES. MEAT. THE SPICES. You’ll find temples all over Thailand! Buddhism is very much prevalent here and like they say, it’s not a religion, it’s a lifestyle. I’ve heard Phuket is a place to visit. Never been. Also heard it’s fairly dirty. Can’t forget about the islands! There are many. The one I went to had resorts all along the beach as well as restaurants and bars.


I may be a little biased, but California is the best state around. You’ll notice that it’s pretty diverse all around. All you need to do is follow the US 101 and you’ll see all kinds of good stuff. Or head over to Yosemite for some nature walks. Obviously you have to see San Francisco, the city by the bay. Don’t forget to hit up the beaches as you visit. Venice, Santa Monica, Carpinteria, San Diego and Santa Barbara are some great spots. When in SF, try the clam chowder. I have yet to visit sea glass beach in northern Cali.


New York. There is a lot to see there. Went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw The Thinker and some of Van Gogh. Walked the Brooklyn Bridge. Went to the top floor of the Empire State Building. The transportation via subway is good as long as you’re paying attention. It was freezing and windy when I was there, but the sun was out so it wasn’t all that bad. Gotta visit the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero memorial next time. The other part of NY I’ve seen is upstate. The Niagara Falls are a must see. Beware, make sure you have your passport so you can visit the Canadian side if you decide to drive there, it’s prettier. Otherwise you can walk without needing a passport.

 

Seattle. Hip and busy city. There are some good outdoor things to do like a walk through a modern art gallery and shop the market. Don’t forget to visit the first Starbucks. I was there for a wedding and it rained LOL.

 

Colorado has a lot to see. There's the dry desert east and the ski-town, agricultural west. One of the highlights you may have heard of, CO was one of the first to legalize marijuana. There is some great skiing here. You may have heard of Aspen, Vail, and Breckenridge.

 

Utah. No offense to the Mormons, but they ruin it. They chose a perfect place to settle themselves long ago. They do keep the city clean and trimmed I'll have to admit. So just ignore them and their views when you visit here for world renowned snow. There are I think about 5 resorts within 45 mins of the airport. There's also national parks in the southern parts (Moab and Zion are big ones).


Hawaii. Kauai is known as the Garden Island of the chain. It’s beautiful here. Again ABC stores are pretty pricey so save up folks. Jurassic Park was filmed here. Lots of beaches to snorkel and lounge at. Some are less touristy. The big island, Kona, has the volcanic parts and green parts. Be sure to buy a good tourist book that will help you find your way around these islands.

 

----------
Well folks, I’ve been to a few other places (Australia, London, Germany) but I was too young to remember all of the details. One day I’ll add photos of my travels to my gallery. Hope you enjoyed this! Let me know what you think. Where have you been?

California has a huge economy, with a larger GDP than most countries.
