The Places I Would Like To Vacation Overseas

The first place on my list would have to be Dublin, Ireland. The reason is because I am Irish and I'd like to see the motherland. I want to be immersed in the culture and reconnect with a past that has captivated me since I was a wee lass. "Garden of Rememberance was designed by Daithi Hanly and dedicated to the memory of all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom.

The large sculpture by Oisin Kelly is based on the theme of the "Children of Lir". The garden is intended as a place of quiet remembrance and reflection." http://www.visitdublin.com/Asset/see_and_do/historic_sites/Garden_of_Remembrance


 The second destination would be Edinburgh, Scotland because I am also Scottish. I know you seen that one coming! I would have to see all of the amazing castles and historical sights. "Edinburgh Castle, one of Scotland's most iconic visitor attractions, sits on its own volcanic rock at the top of the Royal Mile. There’s much to see and admire at Edinburgh Castle, a mighty fortification and favoured residence of Scotland’s kings and queens. Make sure you look out for the Royal Palace, created in 1617 in honour of James VI, the Crown Room where the Scottish Crown Jewels are kept, and the Stone of Destiny where previous Scottish Monarchs were crowned. Listen out at 1pm as the One O'clock Gun is fired almost daily and has been since 1861." http://www.edinburgh.org/see-do/attractions/castles



 The third place would be London, England because I bet I am English too. I am interested in visiting the famous city and Buckingham Palace sounds awesome. "The world-famous "British Museum exhibits the works of man from prehistoric to modern times from around the world. Highlights include the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, and the mummies in the Ancient Egypt collection. Entry is free but special exhibitions require tickets." http://www.visitlondon.com/things-to-do/sightseeing/tourist-attraction/top-ten-attractions






I would also like to visit Madrid, Spain due to its rich history and ancient architecture.
"The Parque del Buen Retiro is the most popular park in Madrid. It can get crowded during weekends when many Madrilenian families go for a stroll in the park and street musicians, sidewalk painters, fortune tellers, jugglers and street performers animate the crowd." http://www.aviewoncities.com/madrid/parquedelretiro.htm


I would love to visit Rome, Italy due to its rich history that helped shaped western civilization. "Emperor Vespasian, founder of the Flavian Dynasty, started construction of the Colosseum in 72 AD. It was completed in 80 AD, the year after Vespasian's death.
The huge amphitheater was built on the site of an artificial lake, part of Nero's huge park in the center of Rome which also included the Golden House (Domus Aurea) and the nearby Colossus statue. This giant statue of Nero gave the building its current name." http://www.aviewoncities.com/rome/colosseo.htm
