If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would go to some place like the Arches National Park in Utah. It has some really cool geologic formations. It’s interesting to think about the erosion that had to occur to cause that formation. However, I think I would actually go to a coral reef somewhere. I would like to check out the Great Barrier Reef, or some other reef before it becomes too bleached. We have a cool saltwater fish tank at home, with a few corals, and actually being able to swim near a group of them that stretches on for miles would be incredible. The diversity of life within coral reefs is also amazing, so it would be great to see all those fish.

If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would choose to go to Iceland. Initially, I always wanted to go to Ireland because of the historical structures and the greenery. But recently, someone showed me some beautiful, natural landscapes of Iceland, which I believe far exceed Ireland. I’ve always appreciated places with mountains and forests, and Iceland certainly reflects that.

If I could go anywhere in the world at the current moment, I think I would love to go to New England. Specifically Cape Cod and the small towns up in that area. I love the New England style of old money and rocky beaches and the small towns up there are beautiful. It’s not super hot during the summer, and the scenery is perfectly calm and serene. I’ve always loved the look of that area and been drawn to it.

If I had the choice to go anywhere in the world to go on a vacation, I would probably like to go to Los Angeles, California. Seeing all of beautiful sites that California has to offer, like the Hollywood Sign, it would be beautiful site to see. Although I would never like to live there, I think that visiting there would be a great time and also would be interesting to be in the same place as many stars. Los Angeles has beautiful scenery and a wonderful ocean for which I would like to see one time in my life. Going to Los Angeles would also be a dream come true because I would be in the home of my favorite football team, the Los Angeles Rams.

If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would travel to Bolivia. The reason I want to go there is because of the salts flats. When you are there it is a reflection of the sky and whatever else is above the flats. Not only the salt flats but the natural beauty of the country in general is amazing. Another place to go there is Valle de la Luna, which is a large rock formation that has eroded over time. Overall, the natural beauty of Bolivia makes me want to travel there.

If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would travel to Paris, France. Ever since I was little I’ve wanted to go to Paris. I’ve had a Paris-themed birthday party, Paris-themed room, only took French for the wholesome fact I want to go to Paris. Mostly everything dream of mine has been revolved around Paris. I should be going summer 2024 with my brother when we travel Europe together and I am so excited.

If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would take a trip to Italy. My family is largely Italian, and I’ve spent much of my life around Italian culture. I would like to have the chance to experience it in full, and from its source. I would like to visit Sicily so that I could see the place much of my family comes from. My great-grandfather and great-grandmother came to America from Sicily, so I can draw a line directly back to Italy.

If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would go to Sweden. I have always wanted to go to Sweden because of all of the beautiful landscapes that I see from various pictures. Also, I would enjoy going to see the big naval museum they have in Stockholm. I feel like I would enjoy Sweden the most because I know the most about it compared to any other Nordic country. In addition, the fact that most of my favorite hockey players are from Sweden just adds to my wish to go there.
