Where In The World......

would I like to be right now?

If money were no object, I would love to go to Europe. Not just one country, but lots of them...Portugal, Spain, Germany, France, Switzerland, Ireland, Austria, and Italy. I would also love to go to Israel.

I want to walk on streets where history was made. I want to see the ports the navigators sailed from, praying they wouldn't fall off the edge of the Earth. I want to see the site where the Berlin wall once stood. I want to see the Eiffel Tower and the vineyards of France. I want to see the Swiss Alps. I want to see the rolling green of Ireland and kiss the Blarney Stone. I would love to visit Rome and see the ancient ruins. And I would love to visit Israel and see firsthand where the Biblical accounts actually happened! How cool would that be?

Alas, these are but pipe dreams, as there is no way I could ever afford it. So, instead, I fix my eyes on Heaven, which no doubt is infinitely more beautiful than anything we could ever hope to see on Earth.

Have you seen the blarney stone? I would want to kiss it, but don't think I could! You have to lie on your back and hang out off of a drop. Here's pictures:
Well, anyway, nice post and I would love to be any of those places myself.

I have often thought that we'll eventually do some of this travel together. At least to Portugal!
