25 Things Before 25: Number 13 Languages

Bonjour, mes amies!

You guessed it! I am going to learn greetings, phrases, or words in 25 different languages!

International Traveler

Those of you who know me know I love to travel. One of my big goals is to become an international traveler. I want to see the world and all it has to offer. I know that is unattainable, but I would at least like to try! I haven’t been to any foreign countries besides Canada and Mexico (and some islands in the Bahamas) and I am craving the experience of other cultures.

Where I Want to Go

Where I’d love to start is Northern Europe! My heritage is Scandinavian and many of my relatives have done trips to Norway, Sweden, and Finland. They have all given amazing reviews and had a great time! On another note, I have had this idea of going to Iceland to see the Northern Lights for years! I, honestly, think this will be the first international trip I will take because I have been trying to go for so long and that would be another hypothetical bucket list item checked off!

On the other hand, I would love to see England for all of the amazing history and beautiful buildings. Then, I would love to visit France–I took French all throughout middle school and high school and would love to see the place I have learned so much about! Next in Europe I would have to see all of the countries along the Mediterranean! Not just because of the beauty, but because of their rich history and spiritual connection.

This is only the beginning! I, also, have places in mind for travels to Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia! Stay tuned to learn with me as I complete this challenge!

One Year?

As a go-getter type of girl, there isn’t much I would say I couldn’t do. That being said, with my plans to travel to 25 different states in my 25 Things Before 25 challenge, I don’t think I could squeeze in 25 countries. Plus, everyone I have talked to has said that you could really use about 2 to 3 weeks for each European country, and I don’t want to rush through these travels.

Alternative

I figure a good alternative to traveling to these countries would be to learn as much as I can before I eventually go; including learning some key words or phrases that are used in each country! I definitely do not plan on learning 25 different languages in one year, but this is a good way to kick start my research on places I want to visit!

What’s a MUST on your travel log (outside of the U.S.)?

Let me know in the comments!

XO,
