First of all, hurray for Roger Federer who kind of made a fool of Del Potro by playing on his top level (oh yes, as good as in 2006!) during the Australian Open quarter finals. Next up is Andy Roddick in the semi-finals. Roddick has definitely become a better player during the last few months (well hello, where did those superb volleys suddenly came from?), but a good Roger can handle him easily. :)

Anyway - today was my first free day, and since most of my friends still haven't finished their exams, I had to spend some time on my own. Apart from watching loads of tennis (and some dumb, but really funny program in which two guys are competing each other with their talent in picking up girls), I've been reading a lot in this lovely book I got as a Christmas present. It's called "The Travel Book" and it contains all possible countries, all of them described by some distinctive attractions and beautiful pictures.
It made me think of how much of the world I have yet to explore. And I can't wait to do so! I made myself a list of places I definitely want to go to in the future. It's kind of an endless list, so I made you a more compact edition:
- NORWAY! My dream since I was a little girl, I've always had a strange fascination with this country.
- Russia (transsiberian route, please!)
- US (especially the San Fransisco area)
- the Baltic states
- Czech republic
- some countries I've already seen, but definitely want to give some further exploration: England, Scotland, Spain, Italy, Portugal...
- and so much more
How about you guys? Any travels YOU really want to do?
