Fun Friday #3: Travel Dreams

We’re going to play a game. You know this one. Someone gives you a round trip ticket to anywhere in the world for free, where would you go? There is no backing out because of work, family, responsibilities. The universe has aligned in your favor to allow you to go somewhere that you’ve always wanted to go.

I’ll go first and I’m going to cheat a little bit by saying Europe. Yes, I know there are how many different countries in Europe, but like I said, I’m cheating. 😉 There are 3 places in particular that I’d love to visit someday.

#1: London

The home of the BBC. The place where Doctor Who was born and Sherlock solves crimes. The country that keeps popping out all these sexy actors with even sexier accents. Of course there are landmarks that would be fabulous to see.

2. Ireland

The setting of many romantic historical novels. I have ancestors from Ireland. I’m not sure how far back, that would be my mom’s area of expertise. I tend to stick to fictional things. One of my favorite books is Irish Hearts (Irish Hearts #1 & #2) by the amazing Nora Roberts. Ever since I read it (when I was probably too young to be reading romances), I’ve wanted to go to Ireland to see the rugged landscape. Maybe even find a fairy or a leprechaun.

3. Scotland

Castles. Kilts. David Tennant. Need I say more? Okay, fine. Many people group Ireland and Scotland together, but they are soooo different! Ireland is known for software and potatoes, Scotland is known for its banking. They both are known for kilts, but the styles are completely different. Scottish kilts are usually a plaid, while Irish kilts are solid. The castles are what I would really love to see. These large, proud fortresses, crumbling from time and weather. Imagine the stories they could tell if they could talk…
