I love traveling, seeing new places, learning more and more about different countries. However, I am a student. This means that I don’t have the time and the money to travel every week. This can’t stop me! Everyone of my friends and relatives has visited a country, city, village, or just a place that is impressive for them. I started interviewing them since I was curious to hear about those places.
At first I was not that encouraged. After I published my first post I was really excited from what I heard and read about Denmark. Then I started preparing every new post right after the publishing of the previous one. When I was writing my third and forth posts I was already thinking how amazing were these stories. I really want to go to all the places I wrote about. I want to visit the amazing Viking Ship Museum. I feel like going on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. I’d love to see the Great Toronto Area from the CN Tower.
I felt like I was visiting all the places just from listening and writing about them. When I saw the pictures of the gingerbread houses in Martha’s Vineyard I played the interview with Yana talking about them. I realized I shared Yana’s opinion. I thought
“Martha’s Vineyard is not America, it’s a little piece of heaven in America,” just like she said.
I visited Spain several years ago. I decided to share my experience with the readers of my blog. I didn’t think that Spain is such an adventure before writing about the country. I want to go back there and see even more.
To be honest, it was never my dream to go to Canada…until my brother told me about his trip.
“It was very shocking the first time,”
he said after going to the CN Tower. Later, when I saw his pictures, I was astonished just by looking at the photos. It completely changed my mind about not going to Canada.
The post after Canada was for Bulgaria. Bulgaria is my home country and I love it very much. It also has so much to offer to all the travelers and tourists. After I learned about the 5-shot video sequence in my journalism class, I decided my video to be about something that happened on my sightseeing trip in Bulgaria. The video is of a friend of mine tasting wine in Melnik. Melnik is famous for the most delicious and exquisite red wine. I also decided to tell my readers about Rila Monastery. It is one of the oldest monasteries in Bulgaria.
I think this every time I see picture of the place or think about it. Furthermore, next week I’ll visit it again.
It is already the middle of the semester for me. For two months I have “visited” so many beautiful places through the eyes of other people. I learned so many things about the places I visited as well as many things about journalism and my major as a whole. It’s been an incredible new kind of a journey for me.
Here a small video summarizing my experience:
