Shakespeare and Company, Paris - 1288 km (800 miles)
Even if I'm struggling with French (I'm studying it for uni completely by myself), Paris is definitely a place to visit (and my former housemate Ilaria is living there, so it would be amazing to meet her). Shakespeare and Company would be my first stop if I'd have the chance to leave for France in this moment. If you don't know, S&C is an English language bookstore situated on the rive gauche (37 rue de la Bûcherie, Paris V), but it's not your regular bookstore. And for a bookworm like me, it's sound like haven itself. It is really famous, but if you want to know more, here some links: the official site and the Wikipedia page.
And on the Rookie photoset you can read a first hand experience of working and sleeping (yes, sleeping) in S&C.
Bonus: the bookstore has also a part in the film Before Sunset, the second of a trilogy with Before Sunrise and Before Midnight. If you hadn't already, watch them asap.
Anne Frank House, Amsterdam - 1523 km (946 miles)
I read the Diary of Anne Frank for the first time when I was 8. At the time, I had not studied the IIWW, I had only vague ideas about what the holocaust was and "jew" didn't mean much, a part for the fact that Jesus was one. I didn't remember what I thought that first time, probably I cried as I do every time I re-read it, but according to the 11 yo still alive in one of my own diaries, in the years Anne became to me the symbol of all who have been persecuted and discriminated in the history for something they had no control on, for what they are. I've never been able to stand injustices and that seemed to me to worst injustice ever. I now know that I'm so lucky to have never experienced on my skin what persecution is and Anne Frank is still one of the person I remember when I'm discourage and think that I can't do much to fight against the "bad". Make the World a better place is hard work, for sure, but people are still discriminated and murdered because someone decided arbitrarily that there is something wrong in them, and I will not stand that.
Central Park, New York - 6871 km (4269 miles)
Having spent a large part of my life watching american films and tv shows, New York is definitely one of the top of this list (along with many other us cities). And the idea of this huge park in the middle of Manhattan really fascinated me.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Orlando - 8256 km (5130)
Ueno Park, Tokyo - 9663 km (6004 miles)
Ueno Park is one of the most famous parks in Japan, known in particular for the celebration of the Hanami. The Hanami comes from a Japanese tradition which consist of enjoying the beauty of flowers, usually cherry blossoms (sakura). Today thousands of people fill the parks and organize parties under the sakura at night. I watched many anime growing up and it always looked like a magical moment I'd love to live myself.
