“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.”
― John Lennon
My daughter is helping me out this week! She’s got mum and dad’s love for travel, so it seemed appropriate for her to take over the blog today with this week’s theme A continent / country / city you’ve always wanted to visit … and why.
PS – She’s 12.
If I could go to any continent/country or city I would choose to go to Europe. I would travel all around Europe because of its history and icons like the Eiffel tower, coliseum and the leaning tower of Pisa. I find it fascinating that mankind made such beautiful buildings and artefacts like the Mona Lisa. I think the people who built the coliseum put in so much detail into the building and now days the architects put so little time putting in detail to make it look it so much better. One of the main countries in Europe I would love to go to is Greece because of all of the old buildings that the Greeks built with so much work and effort in them. I would also like to see who people who live on the Venice River get to places and how they live with a river on their front door step and I would also like to go on a cruise on the Rhine river and see all the castles in the hills and their beauty. I would also like to go in the snow and go snow sledding down the hill because we don’t get much snow down here in Australia or though I have seen snow in America but my hands got so cold I started crying. I would also like to go to one of the many great big festivals where you wear the masks and only reveal yourself to everyone at midnight and I would love to ride one of the double-decker buses in London. I would also like to go to London and go down Portobello road with all the markets and I would spend the whole day there looking at all the little stalls that people have made up and I would buy so much that I would have to buy more suitcases. If I went to Paris I would go to the Art Gallery and see the Mona Lisa and see if her eyes actually followed me around the room and I would love to go on the six lane roundabout and see how long it takes me to get from the middle to the outside.
