Blog Challenge – Day 28: Somewhere I’d Like to Move to or Visit

Well, I guess it’d be pointless to say New Zealand because I’m already here. But seriously, go to New Zealand on your next vacation.

OK, now that that’s out of the way: good question.

There are places I visited when I was younger that I think I would better appreciate with a few more years on me: namely Italy, France and England.

I’d love to go back to Norway. It case you were wondering where my strange surname comes from, that’s where. My family comes from an island called Idse there. Sweden also seems like a fun place.

Considering how close I grew up to it, I have made embarrassingly few trips to Canada. But all three times I had great experiences, and I would like to return.

The pictures I’ve seen of Greece and Turkey make me nearly drool.

And, naturally, there is something about living abroad that makes one appreciate one’s home country. I’ve been to more countries than I have states. Last summer my mom and I embarked on a road trip throughout Washington, and it was amazing to see all the places in my home state I’d either never been to or haven’t even heard of. There’s something to be said for exploring what’s in your own backyard.

  1. I’ll make you a deal. I’ll come visit you in NZ if you come visit me in England.

  2. Andrea Idso says:

    Debating … It really depends on how much money I have at that point. But I think I’d be homesick if I were away from the family on Christmas.
