I recently followed Insider Travel on Facebook, and it got me thinking about everywhere I want to visit after I graduate college. I may not be able to go there right now, but a girl can dream, right?

Oui, my first choice is Paris. The architecture, the fashion…a true city of lights and love. I’ve been saving up to go for years, but finally opened up a savings account specifically for it. No excuses now!

Amsterdam, Netherlands

A prime getaway for culture and a good bike ride, Amsterdam is second on my list. It’s so beautiful, and I think it would be awesome to stay on a house boat for a few days and explore the labyrinth of streets.

Probably the only place in the world you’ll find Disney crammed next to Temples. A massive city in China, Hong Kong should be on your list for it’s diverse Chinese culture.

Though this will be one of your more expensive destinations, no matter the time of year, Zurich is a breath of Dark Ages air, but instead of plague you are embraced with high-end shops, local wine, and delectable Swiss chocolates – all while walking the street of medieval times.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Host to the 2016 Olympics and thriving with attractions and festivals, Rio is a great place to get your party on. See the Christ the Redeemer statue and eat at some decadent restaurants.
