Top Three Places I Hope to Visit

...Because their coolness is just so awesome. When I was still a wee young thing, I only dreamed of Disney World, Disney Land, anywhere where I could find a real Snow White or Donald duck (I will always hate Mickey). Then I grew up and went into that phase of being a weeboe and dreamed of only going to Japan. Now I'm nineteen, I became philosophical about the world and losing interest in humanity, I decided to delve into history, Now I present to you the top three places I want to visit someday:

3.Potala Castle
Located at Lhasa, Tibet, the palace was intended for Songtsan Gambo's then fiance, Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty. The palace then went several rebuildings and expansions for many years. Over the past three centuries, the palace gradually became a place where the Dalai Lama lived. Nowadays, it has been turned into a musuem, with huge number of tourists coming to visit each day.
I just think it as an amazing castle, it is not the usual type, but it had stood firm, from old asian royalties, to Tibetan monks, to Chinese, it transcends time. Plus it looks grand, I could already imagine Uruk-Hai  marching from the distance XD

2. Mont St. Micheal
This tidal island is oozing with awesomeness and historical importance that it was part of UNESCO's World Heritage List.
There was this known legend about this place:
"Archangel Michael appeared to St. Aubert, bishop of Avranches, in 708 and instructed him to build a church on the rocky islet. Aubert repeatedly ignored the angel's instruction, until Michael burned a hole in the bishop's skull with his finger"
I don't know if Micheal was truly as evil or whatever, but I sure want to go there ( Any other World Heritage site is worth visiting). *sigh

Be-Cause. I mean just stare at this beotch. It's serious, it puts Disney Castle to second place by just being its main inspiration. Located in Bavaria, Germany. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for King Ludwig as well as a homage to composer Richard Wagner and his creations. However it was opened to the paying public immediately after the king's death in 1886.
Now it is one of the most visited places in Germany, as well as one of the most popular destination in all of Europe. The attention it truly deserves.
