Welcome to the feature where every fortnight we will explore different topics that are listed in the book A List A Day by Paperchase. They range from food, music and travel to really random topics so I thought it wold be a fun one to talk about throughout the year!
Today’s List: Iconic Sites I Want to Visit
There are so many places I want to visit in the world, however today I thought I would talk about a few that stick in my mind when I am writing this. I love travelling and these are some of the places on the top of my list I want to visit.
The rock sculpture of Decebalus, Border of Romania / Serbia – I had one of Jane McDonalds cruise shows in the background one day where she was travelling down the Danube and this sculpture came on and I found it completely fascinating. Apparently it is on the border of Romania and Serbia and it is carved into the rocks. It was commissioned by Romanian businessman Iosif Constantin Drăgan and it took 10 years for twelve sculptors to complete it.
Yosemite National Park, United States – I have heard nothing but good things about Yosemite and would love to visit this national park. I know that this is huge and that there is a lot to see but I have also heard that it is really beautiful.
Reichenbach Falls, Switzerland – I am fascinated by the world of Sherlock Holmes and when I found out that the Reichenbach Falls was a real place, I knew that I would want to go there. I have travelled a lot of Switzerland but when I did that it was the winter so it was not the right time to go here but I still aim to visit this at some time and really paint the stories narrative and bring it to life.
Eiffel Tower, Paris – I have visited a lot of France but there is one place that I still have not visited yet and that is Paris. I would love to go to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, it is not about the romance or the love evolved around the capital but actually the construction. It is a magnificent building and the way it was built is fascinating and to see this up close would be pretty special.
