Today's question: If you could wander anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why?
I would love to wander across the water to Great Britain.
I've always wanted to go to England and last summer I got the chance to go with a group from my college to spend two weeks looking at as many of the great literary sights as we could cram in. We saw Macbeth with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Hamlet in the Globe and Much Ado About Nothing in London starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate (The sight of my favorite Doctor wearing a pig nose, a blue wig, fishnet tights, high heeled boots, and a mini skirt is indelibly seared on my consciousness). We went to Shakespeare's house and CS Lewis' house and the Jane Austen Centre in Bath and so much more. We even got lost in Covent Garden in London.
I've been wanting to go back and visit again since the jet lag wore off after getting home the last time. I want to be able to spend more than two hours looking at Oxford. I want to actually get out of the bus to look at Stonehenge. I want to venture into Wales and Scotland and over to Ireland.
I might even get my wish. I may be able to spend, at least, part of my Junior year at the University of St. Andrews in St. Andrews, Scotland since my college has an exchange program with them.
What about you? Where would you like to wander?
