get up and go

I've been having one of those restless feelings of wanting to go away somewhere, anywhere, just for the sake of being in another place. Possibly due to the fact that I had to decline a friend's invitation to go away to Brisbane this week. All it did was make me miss all my old friends there (I used to live in Brisbane during Uni a few years ago) more than ever, and wishing that I could be there right now. Or at least somewhere else exciting enough to justify my decision to not go and take my mind off things.

So, here's a question:
If you could revisit any place right now, where do you want to go?  
(note the word REvisit!)

Sunset beach Hawaii, sitting on the beach drinking a beer with newly made friends, It sure beats sitting here on the computer

Natalia Komis said...

India...Manali..! jamming away on stage with lots of like minded people, showering in waterfalls and then siting in the hot springs....aa I wish I was there, and not in groggyness land. love the memories though..

Kirsten said...

Launceston, Tasmania. I love the cute houses near the city and swimming in the freezing cold gorge on a sunny day, when I was little with my cousins...

rizky said...

Melbourne!! so that I can explore the city and other tourist destination with my best friend once again..

wallflowersforjane said...

mmm, for me, i would say new zealand. i want to be driving on the roads, admiring the scenery, dreaming that any moment a Lord of the Rings battle would break out right in front my eyes.

Berlin! With no doubt!

Menna Tarek said...

Paris!
I've been to Paris a couple of times and the last was with my college friends after graduatiing.
how i wish to go there again!

Claire Kiefer said...

I'd have to second Paris. Oh, to be sitting outside at a dreamy cafe with a glass of wine, not knowing where the night was headed. I love Paris, and it's been too long since I've visited!

abigail oliveros said...

great photos! thanks for sharing.

Laura said...

Maybe New York, i think it'd be beautiful in the Autumn... ah.

Ally said...

Fernie, in British Columbia, Canada. It's coming up to winter, so that means I can go boarding there again. I miss it so much...

blue eyed night owl said...

Tokyo and this time round I would shop more...

sara said...

i honestly get that feeling so, so often. i wish is was possible to just get up and take off.
right now? new york city. in a heartbeat i would go.

L said...

totally agreed with blue eyed night owl! Tokyo coz i havent had enough of it! :D

Lovely pictures! Well, the place that I'd love to revisit is California because my fiance lives there, hehe, but given the fact that I'll be moving there before the end of the year, I'll choose England. It's the only place in the world where I felt that I could fit in, you know. I went alone when I was 15, that was my very first long trip alone and never felt lonely, scared ... all the feelings and experiences were absolutely positive! Plus, I love the way the British speak!

Don't regret your decision, Anna! I'm sure you reached it based on smart thiking. Oh, and if you've never been to Buenos Aires, I highly recommend it! Seriously =).

Cheers!

Miki.

The Breede River in South Africa. I once spent a few days in a cottage there. It was the only house for miles. At night we would lay by the riverside and look at the stars.

See Hear Say said...

oh my gosh i have quite a long list for this! as much as i want to go see other places around the world, there are also other places that i want to revisit including paris, barcelona and new york.

but more than anything i'd also love to go to rotterdam, i spent 3 yrs living there for uni and as small city as it is which i think could be quite boring (no offence if anyone reading this is from rotterdam!), i've had a great time when i was there too.

C.Elizabeth said...

If it's just to visit, I'd have to see Miami, Florida. Spent so much time there when I was younger and I miss it like crazy!
Though, what I really want is to move back home (Canada) and be with my family! Living abroad is a very experience but after so long, it gets tiring to miss everybody and everything!

Flora said...

Chamonix, France, living in a hectic city makes me miss the fresh, clean air of the french Alps and that lovely town at the bottom of the Mont Blanc.

Alice said...

Beautfiul Pictures. I love the last one. xx, Alice from bells and whistles :)

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Italy. Or Greece. I can't decide. Perhaps just the Mediterranean coast in general :)

Jen said...

Oh, I don't know. Probably some parts in San Diego I remember my family and I went to when I was young.

Lovely photos!

Sarah Knight said...

I would just want to go somewhere beautiful where I could wander around endlessly and take pictures
: )

diane said...

Paris, definitely. Because during my first trip I didn't get to do much and explore. And I just love the language so much!

justineful said...

The streets of Singapore. I definitely didn't do enough exploring when I was there over the summer.

Charlotte. said...

love the picture with the antler!

i'd love to revisit venice, i went there when i was a lot younger & didn't truly explore as much as i could have.

oh boy - so many places i'd love to visit again! St Croix was just beautiful - wouldn't mind chilling out on the beach. And we really want to go back to Australia! so much more we want to see!

honestly said...

Rotorua actually. I'm a swede and I lived in NZ 2008 as an exchange student, however not in Rotorua. But in Rotorua happend a lot of wonderful things and I met lovely people I'll never forget, both kiwis and international students <3

Mirabel said...

The Orkney islands! I visted them with my grandparents when I was 13 and it was just the most wonderful month!

Olivianne said...

Hrmm... I would most likely go to England or Paris. I dream to photograph the buildings of Paris, and the Eiffel tower (obviously). England has such beautiful scenery. I'd like to go there to paint... Even though I have no painting capability. But wouldn't it be lovely to go to England, to paint? Ahh. I babble.

Claggie said...

I've been feeling the same way! I've been craving an adventure. I'd really like to just throw a dart at a map and go wherever it lands. I really love your blog! <3

stayunderthestars said...

I've been missing Queenstown quite a lot recently, acutally New Zealand in general, so I would revisit NZ right now, if I could.

Norah Salvatore said...

Back home to Canby, Oregon.

I miss the tall trees, the color and the spirit of the town. Where I am now is dead in comparison.

This post really got me thinking about my definition of home, so I thank you for that. I desperately want to be somewhere, to go away and to just be for a while.

You're wonderful.

Yours,
Norah of Lets run away

Love these photos!
Revisit? Ruidoso, NM. Love the moutains(even if they are a little small)!

A Flourishing Perspective said...

Oooh! I am in love with the first photo--and it makes me want to get some high tops. :)

Oh darling, yes! I have been longing to travel as well. But to places I've never been--Europe to be precise. But a place to revisit would be Destin, Florida--the beaches were beautiful!

XOXO-
