Writer's Workshop


Okay, Europe is not a country. I find it very difficult to pick just one country there. I was watching a movie last night & thinking that I should be living in London. Or somewhere in the English countryside. Of course, movies depict the landscapes of other countries beautifully. I don't think the editing makes the places look better, I believe that's how they look in the location the movie is shot. Location, location, location, right?

All of these countries are just a stones throw from one another - how is that not awesome? My brother has been to Europe a couple of times & he said they are so close together it's almost like driving from town to town in any state in the US. I'm sure that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I get what he's saying. If I had to choose a place to begin my journey - I would choose Italy.

The Boot

Most of Europe has a ton of places to visit in each country, landmarks, historical attractions, dining experiences, etc. Something about Italy, though, just makes me want to go there & soak up the culture, the scenery, the absolute beauty of the place. The wonders to see, too!! The Roman Colosseum - wow - I want to go there & feel the brutal history of that place. I imagine the spirits of it still angry & full of fight. I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

And Venice!! The water canals of streets, the amazing architecture that is centuries old! The romantic fountains and colorful shorelines, and I'm sure there are several rustic cafes all over every city in Italy; oh and who can forget the Tuscan Countryside.

If I ever make it to Europe, I hope I have at least a year to do everything I want to do there and that may not even be enough time. Maybe in another life? Maybe before I die...I will know when it happens.

This is my project for Mama Kat's

Great post! I LOVE the pictures. :)My little sis went to school in Scotland and did many trips to many European countries... you can cover so many in such a short amount of time!

I love how colourful Venice always seems to be... I'm afraid to actually go there for fear it won't be exactly like I picture and I'll be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Top of my list of European countries to visit, too! Every year, we talk about it, but somehow, it never works out. "Maybe next year." Hopefully, someday you will get to go!

I think Venice would be just as beautiful as it is in pictures if not more.

I would also like to see Rome.

DD2 went to Paris and Italy while she was in London. It can be easier to do when you are already there, a good Post!

Nice post. These pictures make me want to hop on a flight and be there like now. I have to say that of all the places you mentioned, Venice would draw me the most...something about stepping out my front door into a boat sounds very cool.
