My first post on my “Destination” series! Typically, these are the places I wanna go to – slash – will probably go to in the near future, hopefully.
First on my list, is the non-typical Romania. When I tell people that I’d love to jump on an airplane headed to Romania they just end up staring at me and saying “lol what?’, I know it’s not a typical dream destination but I don’t know. There’s something about medieval-vampire-castle-filled places that draw me near. That, and I actually want to spend time volunteering in one of the orphanages in the rural areas of the country. Trust me, I’m no philanthropist but it’s always nice to visit a place knowing you’ve got a mission to do and leaving it with good memories. And I’m just really drawn to the castles!
I read this booked called Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey, and boy, was it something. Basically it’s about vampires which normally would stay clear of because I have no interest in such things but it was also about a monarchy, a destiny and a place that is filled with history. I was hooked, and funny thing was I fell in love with Romania even though the setting was in the States. Go read the book, you’ll understand what I’m talking about more.
