So you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that young anymore

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. :)

Oh, and watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CteLDN7214

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!)
- Australia
- Sweden
- Finland
- Iceland
- Canada
- US (especially the San Fransisco area)
- Ireland
- the Baltic states
- Peru
- Japan
- China
- 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?


  1. Now that Murray is out, I hope Federer wins it. I like your list; I've actually been working on a similar idea for my blog for a while. And I hope the exams went well!

  2. Hey, how are you doing? Hope all is well.

  3. Jordan - 4 of my 5 exams went well, still have to get my results though! I'm looking forward to your list. :)
    And yeh, I thought Murray would've made it at least to the semi-finals, I was kind of looking forward to a Nadal/Murray match. But Federer is doing really well, I hope this will be his no°13!

    Leon - Hi! All is well with me, how are you? Thank you for stopping by my blog!
