The World is Never Ending

I think I'm obsessed. Honestly, I am. With traveling. It's like I have a traveler's itch. I've been back from my ventures across the Middle East for only 3-4 months now and I'm ready to fly out somewhere else.

So I bought the Lonely Planet Europe on a Shoestring. This book is over 1,000 pages of pure amazingness. I asked my parents if I could get permission to go backpacking across Europe for my college graduation. They would pay for my flight and I would pay for everything else. My mom gave me permission so long as she knew my completely itinerary. Then my dad just last week told me some old Asian fable at the dinner table about this man dreaming about something that would never be. Something about goats, milk, and land. I think he was trying to hint something at me but I'm currently choosing to ignore it.

Anyhow here's the list of countries I want to tackle at least: UK, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, and Turkey.

I keep highlighting places I'll go and the buses I'll take from country to country. I should probably stop but I can't help it.

A girl can dream can't she?

In other news...I started reading graphic novels. My sisters and I discovered a plethora of them at the library and ended up borrowing about 10 all together. We're crazy. Ohh and we watched the movie 'Up' which was one of the cutest movies ever. When the wife died in the beginining I was so upset that I almost stopped watching it.

Anyhow, this is random but I came across this awesome video on this website I absolutely LOVE.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Ok but im serious. Read Maus. I mean its not that great. I dunno. It was the first GN I read so I loved it...but that was like 3 years ago.

CA and Cheryl- so long as you guys are spontaneous and fun I'm down with taking you along =D
roo- I hope so too inshaAllah
Mrs.Cullens- I read MAUS back in high school...it was pretty good. I'll cover Superman and Watchmen in my next set inshaAllah. I got Jane Eyre ...its so much better as a graphic novel :)

I am obsessed with graphic novels. I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. its completely amazing.. you won't put it down. i have PLENTY of other recommendations because i've been reading comic books since forever, so hit me up if you want more books :)

lol your title confused be.. i was like "what? the world is ending..."

also, subhanallah mA you are lucky to travel... i probably will not be able to until i'm past my life's prime, if ever. well, inshallah i will.

but personally i'd rather go into space then see the world-- that can wait. the first thing i'll do when i'm rich is take a trip on a space ship.

Mrs. Cullen said...

Provoking--how could you afford a trip to space? That would be SO COOL. But you would have to be super rich. And if you were super rich then I suggest you use that money on more important things like saving the world!!!!

provoking invoking said...

mrs. C ur right... but i can still dream! i think going to space is the cost of a house, like $400,000 or something.. people do spend on crazier things.. if i had a choice though between travelling around the entire world vs. going into space and seeing the earth from space, i'd pick the latter.

I wanna travel too oh so bad!! The sights to see, omg. I want to go to Europe too.

Ladies I love your blog so much!! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!!! =)

Youthful Wisdom said...

PI- I would love to go to space! MC you should join!! How baller would that be... flying out there and looking at the earth from the outside?? Now that would be "SubHanAllah" moment!
Melanie- thanks, you too!
