Where In The World...
Okay so we're doing yet another writing prompt. Just trying to have a little fun while hanging out with my mom and son as well as packing. Something to take my mind off of it all.
So with that being said, here's my next prompt:
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Personally, I've got dozens of places I want to go. However, first on my list would be Scotland. I'm half Scotch-Irish. I absolutely LOVE the sound of bagpipes. They stir my blood and call me to battle. They help me to remember my ancestors. I'd love to see where my Clansmen came from.
My other half is Dutch. I'm second generation Dutch in America on my mother's side and have our family tree documented back to the 1600's in the Netherlands. I'd visit the Netherlands next. I could really get back to my roots there. My mother is the youngest of 11 children and I am the youngest of 53 grandchildren. That's right. 53. My sister and I were looking through our family tree once and figured out we have at least 2 first, second and third cousins in every state, if not more. Huge!
I'd also like to visit England, as I have friends over there. Germany as well, for the same reasons. I'd like to visit France, but I can't honestly claim that is all for me, my daughter would like to go someday. Ireland would be on that list as would Greece and Australia. I bet I have family in Australia. New Zealand of course would be right there and I would have to go there too! Last stop would be China.
If I absolutely had to pick just one place... just ONE... it would be Scotland.
How about you? Where would you go?
