Getting Away – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

So, today’s Stream of Consciouness prompt is “getting away”. What’s the first thing that comes to my mind? The Offspring’s song, Gotta Get Away  🙂

Then I think of how I got away from it all for a week when I went on a trip to Ireland about 10 years ago. I had such a good time there, and wish I could go back again. It was so beautiful there, and I wished I could have stayed longer than the week that was scheduled for the trip. I’d went as part of a study abroad trip with a group of teachers and students at the community college. Pretty bold of me, since I didn’t know anyone there, and was only familiar with the lead teacher in the group because my mother had taken a couple of her classes  a couple years earlier (and had even done a similar trip then, also).  The trip was also my first time on a plane, so I was really feeling bold then. I had decided to go to celebrate having paid off my student loan (not the community college, I wasn’t a student there, per se; I’d only been taking a class or two there for fun).

It was such a fun trip, visiting different places in southern Ireland. Dublin, the Ring of Kerry, Dingle, Kilkenny Castle, the Rock of Cashel, the Titanic museum – all of it was so much fun. And I had the best fish and chips at a riverside restaurant there.  Oh, I really wish I could go back some day and see more!

I do enjoy traveling, I just can’t really afford to do as much as I would like. If I ever win the lottery or hit it big publishing, I would go back to Ireland. I’d also like to visit England and Scotland. And I want to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, too 🙂 Some other dream places I’d like to see would be Japan, the Pyramids, and the Winter Palace and Hermitage Museum.

Where would you like to go to get away from it all, if you could?
