I know you see all those Instagram hashtags that say #travelmore and you are like, with what money? Or those Instagram travel vloggers who just live their lives and experience the world. I always see these things around, and I am still like “FML” because I can’t afford shit. Well during all those years of jealousy, I thought about the five most precious places that I will love to travel to and decided to share it with you.

1. Munich, Germany

The main reason, I want to explore Munich, is because it’s the only place I can afford. I have family there which is fantastic because I will have a place to crash, food to eat and people to explore with plus the place is beautiful (only seen through pictures).

2. Toronto, Canada

This one is kind of stupid because I live in Canada and can go to Toronto anytime. I live 2 hours away from the place. Rather than money, I think this is the fault of laziness and the unwillingness to do things to better my life.

3. Paris, France

Love Love Love. All you need is love.
When I think of Paris like everybody else, I think of love, fashion, and Kalash (French rapper) but mostly love. I am not an unrealistic person; I don’t think I will fall in love and have magical babies with a non-homophobic intelligent heterosexual man. Shit like that only happens in movies. The kind of love I speak of is the love of oneself.

Short story time – When my friend came back from “Paris” ( P.S, I know, like Paris is her backyard or something) she had this serenity in her that I wanted so badly. Someone ate her sandwich at work; she said: “that’s okay.” Professor said she would fail, “she smiled and thanked the professor for the semester.”
For some reason, she was at peace and in love with herself (p.s I don’t know if they sell a portion for self-peace and love in Paris, but I want to go and check for myself 😉 ).

4. Lagos, Nigeria

The main reason, I want to travel to Lagos Nigeria is because of the people, culture, and food. I have been to Lagos before, but I have never experienced it. I want to go the beaches, I want to see the museums, I want to experience Lagos Nightlife, and the most important aspect “the street food.”

5. Havana, Cuba

“Havana, ooh na-na (ay)” Combined with the culture and the people, this place is incredible (also only seen through pictures). I also want to look at the splash of colours and the beautiful buildings. Plus it’s within my price range which is impressive and vital.
I hope you enjoyed the list of places I want to visit and can’t afford.

Like if you love my selection.
