Ireland

blog6a copy

I want to go on a tour of castles in Ireland. I would love to experience Ireland, on my own but also through the help of a tour if that makes any sense. There is a tour called, Castle’s of Ireland self-drive tour, that allows you to do just that. You drive yourself to and from each destination and then a tour guide details the castle and its history. Besides places I want to go, history is certainly a common denominator all of my blog posts. I am sorry, I just cannot help it. Know that people once lived in these medieval castles just blows my mind. I wonder about all details of their lives, and compare them to my own. How different would my life be if I lived in a castle during that time?

Here is a map of where the tour takes you:

To me, this vacation would be a dream come true. The ability to drive and see this much of Ireland while on the way to yet another castle! Wow.If you want information about this tour, click here. I use the fact that I am part Irish to facilitate my obsession with castles and Ireland. I know that I have more pictures in this post than my others, but Ireland is just so beautiful and I cannot wait to show you. Imagine living here:

I will leave you with this, just think about it for a second, what would your life be like if you lived in the castle shown above? What would you do each morning and evening?

One day I will go to Ireland and I hope it’s better than my imaginary adventure.

Greece

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about Greece is the ocean, mountains, and shopping the local markets. The first time I realized that I wanted to go to Greece was when I watched the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Hilarious, I know. But I was in high school and I loved Blake Lively. Anyways, when I saw Greece, I was hooked.

Not only is Greece beautiful, but it is full of history. Which, if you have read any of my previous blogs, you already know that I love history. If I can get rich, historical information and the ocean, that’s the dream. Here are just a few of the historical sites in Greece:

I am not exactly sure how long I would have to stay in Greece to fully appreciate and experience all of its history, but there is no amount that would be too long. I would love to stay in Greece for many months, just absorbing and exploring. Writing this blog has
re-fueled my burning desire to go to Greece.

One day I will go to Greece and I hope it’s better than my imaginary adventure.
