Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. This Week’s Topic: If you could wander anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why?
This question is really timely as I just copped to my extreme wanderlust in my last post. There’s so many options, it’s hard to know where to begin. A few places on my short list: the gardens of Versailles, Harrods department store, Yukon Territory (where I can view the Aurora Borealis from an outdoor hot tub), Hogwarts.
However, I have to go with The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. I’ve fantasized about roaming its galleries since I was little. Yes, I was that weird kid who actually wanted to go to the museum.
Museums are places where you can follow a creative and imaginative path through the breadth and width of humanity, directly connecting with the past. It sparks my own artistic drive and the desire to create something with a life that surpasses my own.
Just so you know, I’m fully prepared to drop to my knees and weep upon seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s Madonna Litta.
I’ll get there someday. Until then, this will have to do.
