I have always been one to marvel at historic sites. Not necessarily museums, but rather buildings and locations that have been preserved for many years and are still avaliable for people to see or become a part of. For example, in St. Catherines there is a carousel at Port Dalhousie that has been preserved over a hundred years and the price is still just 5 cents a ride! Also, in Hamilton, Dundurn castle is still open to the public to visit. Many people even hold their weddings there!
If I were able to go anywhere in the world, I would want to go to a country with a rich culture and a rich history. One with a unique language, delectable cuisine and gorgeous architecture; all masters at leaving the viewer in awe with the crave to return.
Italy would be my first choice when deciding on where I could go if I could go anywhere in the world. The old brick or stone roads, the cafes, the essence of bargaining in the markets, the gondola rides in the one and only Venice, the lost empire of Rome and the old villas in Tuscany. I would definitely take with me my three best friends. They would enjoy the new atmosphere and the fresh culture of people who not only speak through a language but also through their gestures. Going on a trip with them to another country would be exhilertaing, full of lots of laughs and great for making memories to cherish for the rest of our lives. Italy is full of places worth sightseeing and full of a rich culture and history.
The people in Italy love it when tourists attempt to speak the language and encourage their efforts. They pride their achievements in cuisine and their food is well known across the world such as famous dishes like pizza and pasta. Visiting Italy would be pointless if you did not try the food in the cafes at the side of the street. Having your friends with you would make the experience that much brighter and joyful.
