Journal Day 3; Aug 3, 2016

Day 3: List about five places that you really want to visit and why. 


And we're already on the third day of the 30-Days Journal Challenge! Wooooooo! And it's another list. Well, I really don't have much to say beforehand, so let's just get straight to the point.

Thank you for reading this post, and I hope you'd read the following days' topics. :)
Enjoy reading!

The following list is in no specific order.

Five Places That I Really Want To Visit And Why

Holy mother of... Look at all those books! *faints*
1. The British Library
If I had the chance to travel to London, England, the first place I'd want NEED to visit is this library. It's located in London, and houses more than 170 million items—13.9 million of this which are books! That's a lifetime worth of reading!

I want to visit this library to gather up all sorts of inspiration from all the kinds of books they have there. Perhaps learn more than I can about literature. Or maybe read up some tall tales and mythologies and legends. Or maybe I can just read some manuscripts to expand my knowledge. Who knows what information they yield?

One of the many flower fields of Hokkaido.
2. Hokkaido, Japan
Japan has always been one of my top countries to visit ever since I was a kid. But the only place in the country that has won my heart is the island of Hokkaido, the northmost main island of the Japanese archipelago.

Hokkaido is simply breathtaking. I mean, just look at those fields! It's a perfect getaway or for a honeymoon. :3 Not only does it have such a landscape, Hokkaido is also filled with lush flowers of different species. The air must be perfect there. No pollution, all quiet, definitely my kind of place to be.

Even the building itself is a work of art!
3. The Louvre
Located in Paris, France, from outside, it looks like any mediocre glass pyramid. Inside, however, is where famous artworks like Mona Lisa, by Leonardo da Vinci is exhibited. Oh, did I forget to mention they are all the real things?

I want to visit this place just to stare and marvel at all the paintings and sculptures—especially Mona Lisa. Even sculptures like Venus de Milo and artifacts such as The Code of Hammurabi way from Mesopotamia are situated there. It baffles me to think how these works can be preserved for so long in perfect condition.

4. Yellowstone National Park
One of the most famous and iconic national parks in the world. It's located in Wyoming, USA, and known for its multiple geysers shooting steaming water into the air. The park is also huge, occupying parts of both Indiana and Montana.

Yellowstone is one of the places I really want to visit because of its uniqueness. Geysers, springs, serene atmosphere and landscape, clean air—need I say more? I could just rest under one of the trees there and write, with the sounds of gushing water undulating my thoughts.

The topic didn't specify it had to be a real location...
5. The Kingdom of Seriquas
The Kingdom of Seriquas is my fictional world that I had created for my novel series, Seriquan Magiwarrior. From great forests to mountain ranges to wide open plateaus to human settlements, the kingdom has much to offer than what the eye can see. Technically, it's not a real location, but hey! The topic didn't say it had to be a real place, right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It may come out as awkward, but I want to visit my own world because I love to get a feel of how it is like of what I created. Writing it (or giving it life) for my characters' adventures is fun and all, but nothing would beat living in my own world, even if I weren't a ruler. If it only were true... if it only were true...

  1. There's a supervolcano at Yellowstone!

    1. I know right? As if geysers weren't enough, it had to be on top of a supervolcano. Let's just hope it doesn't erupt... :P

    2. Well it has been quite a while since it last did (millions of years ago )

    3. I hope it doesn't erupt until the next millions of years.

    4. I don't think we'll ever know when it does.

  2. The Kingdom of Seriquas. If only it exists, I would definitely go there!

    1. That's strange... What about Seriquas that makes you want to go there?

    2. I read about the novel that you wrote. According to your novel, Seriquas is a wonderful place, covered with beautiful forests and mountain ranges. It's a place where I can enjoy nature. I would also love to meet the characters in The Kingdom of Seriquas!

    3. I'm glad that you read a piece of my novel that I shared on Facebook! But beware of creatures lurking around. :P

  3. There must be a reason why you choose Seriquas as your imaginary kingdom (did I say imaginary?). With all the forests and mountains, it sounds like the Twilight Saga's setting (no offense)I am a fan of that sagas and purposely bought 4 novels before they were transformed into movies. Hmm, mountains...make me to recall my recent memories when I went back to my hometown.

    1. I wanted Seriquas to have multiple biomes, yet all fit together and makes sense for such climate to happen. And turns out, it works perfectly (with all the lores and stuff)!

      Stephenie Meyer's Twilight is definitely better written than portrayed in the movies. No shame in buying more books than you can read at one time--I do it all the time!
