Places I've Traveled and Want to Travel By: Jordan Loebel

California was first sighted by Spanish navigator Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1952. It became a U.S. territory in 1847. The capital of California is Sacramento. The largest cities in California are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, Oakland, Bakersfield, and Anaheim. There's a total of 278 state parks and beaches. Lawrence KS, is twenty five hours away from California, and 1,704 miles away.

I traveled to California last summer with my best friend Abbie. We went camping, sight seeing, and swimming at the beach. I really enjoyed experiencing all of this with her. We visited many different places in California that we've both never been to, this includes Yosemite, McWay Falls,and Mammoth Lakes.
Oregon was first sighted in the 1500s and 1600s by Spanish and English sailors. The capital of Oregon is Salem. The largest cities in Oregon are Portland, Eugene, Salem, Gresham, Hillsboro, Beaverton, Bend, Medford, Springfield, and Corvallis. There are a total of 231 state parks. Lawrence KS, is twenty three miles away from Oregon, and 1,641 miles away.
During the summer trip with my best friend, we also went to Oregon and visited Crater Lake, Multnomah Falls, and to the Astoria Column. These were places we've both never been to, it was a really great experience. I really want to go back here sometime soon. I would check this place out!!
Someday, I would like to visit Italy because it looks like a beautiful place, and it would be a great experience. When I go there I would like to visit the famous Colosseum and the Amalfi Coast because they are both well known places to go and I just think it would be a lot of fun.
In the future, I would really like to visit Germany because it sounds like a really fun place to go, and also, some of my grandparents live there ( I don't remember which part of Germany), so they could show me around some of the places they like going. But I also want to go to the Neuschwanstein Castle because it looks absolutely incredible there.
Switzerland is definitely one of the many places on my bucket list because it's incredibly beautiful. I think renting a cabin here for like a week would be awesome. In Switzerland I really want to visit the Rhine Falls and the Chillon Castle, these would be fun places to go check out. I can't wait to visit this place someday.
Another place to visit on my bucket list is New Zealand because it looks like a fun place to visit and also because I know someone who use to live there so I could go up there and visit them. When I go here someday I really would like to go to Milford Sound and Lake Wanaka. These are both very beautiful.
Above, are pictures of California and Oregon. Top left: Oregon, Top right: California, Bottom left: California, Bottom right: Oregon. When I went to California and Oregon I had a great experience. I went to many new places I have never gone before. My favorite out of the two would have to be Oregon just because of the weather and it rains more there, which I really like. Overall, I had a great time and I can't wait to go back soon.
