Hello everybody!

My name is Lena and this is my first article. I thought I should post a get-to-know-me article but I figured I should start with something nice and chill. So here are the places that I want to visit before I turn 40 (I'm 17).

  • Switzerand

Lucky me, I've been there twice! It was an educational school trip (two years in a row) but it happened, it was beautiful and I ate so much chocolate I gained 5 pounds! I visited Geneva, Bern, and Luzern.
TIP: If you ever visit Geneva you have to visit the Café de Paris or Le Relais de l'Entrecôte. It may be a tad bit pricy but the food is awesome! (The meat with the green sauce and the fries is on my top 10 favourite savory foods ever!).

  • Paris

I don't know about you, but Paris has been one of my fave places. It's so beautiful! The food is great (notice the pattern of food in my picks?), the culture is so rich, it's a fashion capital and Disneyworld has been on my bucket list since I was a tiny little pumpkin of a girl, but my parents never took me though they promised they would. Long story short my father passed 1.5 ago and never took me on a family trip abroad like he promised and wanted to, which is a shame because among other things I wanted to laugh in his face and tell him he should have taken me to Paris when I was 10 instead of 17-18. So there you go! Bonus storytime for yall!

  • New York City

I would say that the Big Apple is a place that almost everyone wants to visit at least once. Me being one of them. My mom being one of the others that doesn't like America as much as Europe when it comes to travelling and would rather go to Paris than NYC. Either way, it's right on my list and I want to go. Plus Fashion Week. Need I say more?

  • London

This GIF perfectly captures London In my opinion so you only get this and not 4 pictures.

London is another traveller's top 10 location. It's beautiful, there are so many things to see and do. The permanently gloomy weather gives this city a vibe I can only describe as "moody", interpret as you wish. The only downside is that my hair will frizz so much I will look like I stuck a fork in the hotel room plug. Also Harry Potter soooo.....

  • Los Angeles

As an aspiring actress Hollywood is where I want to be. Los Angeles is an amazing city full of glamorous sights and cool activities. Going to LA is one goal, but staying there and making it in the film and/or television industry is another. Still, visiting the hot, palm tree adorned, star studded city is my dream. Also don't question my choice of image of the Hollywoos sign. The Hollyweed prank was EPIC!

These are the cities I ABSOLUTELY AND UNDOUBTEDLY want to visit before I am 25.

BUT there are some more places I want to visit before I am 40. Let's take a look, shall we?

  • Tokyo
  • Berlin
  • Hong Kong
  • Miami
  • Norway
  • Turkey
  • Hawaii
  • Egypt
  • Moscow

And..... GREECE!
Fun fact: I live in Greec. BUT I have not visited a LOT of wonerful places here. So, bonus points, you get to read all the places I am planning on going to in the next summer or two:

  • Mykonos

The infamous island that everone goes to and parties all day and all night. No, I have not been there YET. But I will go this summer.
  • Paros

A much less popular destination than Mykonos and Santorini, with beautiful beaches, a place to wind down, with night life for the party people.
  • Santorini

If so many celebrities go there, it must be awesome, right? It is. Views, volcano, sunsets, food, sea, light. Calm and powerful.
  • Spetses

This quaint island is so adorable! it's tiny, yet it has a rich history. The carriages with the horses taking you on rides are the trademark of the island. It has recently started being more popular and I am so NOT mad about it!

Our little journey around the world and around Greece is finished in theory. All that is left now is to really travel there. Thank you for taking time to read this, have a great day!
