I’m not certain where in this challenge this prompt came in…maybe #1, I don’t know, I entered on the 6th day…
Like I said though, I am attempting to go back and document the ones that I missed. 🙂
If we live truly, we shall see truly. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?

It’s true, not everyone wants to travel the world, and I am one of those. I don’t dream of white sanded beaches with tranquil and transparent ocean views. I don’t dream of hiking up mountains and camping at Yosemite Park! Not even the Grand Canyon strikes my fancy.
Odd, maybe, but I am a true and conditioned home body.
However, there is one place, maybe two, I would like to visit, if I could click my ruby shoes together I would LOVE to experience…
The Emerald Isle – Ireland – Donegal County, to be specific. Donegal is where my family is from, according to the research of my maiden name O’Donnell.
Isn’t she a beautiful land…green and miles and miles of serene beauty. I’d like to see her and possibly meet distant relatives from my Celtic Roots. With a bit of research I found this: Donegal Studies which told me that I am a descendant of Celtic royalty of sorts.
Not a girl of romance any more than I am a girl of travel…I found the information romantic and thrilling. Descending from Gaelic Royalty with Midieval Castles and wars and such just speaks to my primal love of all things midieval and celtic.
King Arthur and the Round Table tales, I dream of stories like these about my ancestors!
I truly don’t know how or when, but I intend to find my way to Ireland the home of my forefathers and foremothers.
Interesting fact…Celtic women were treated equally to Celtic men. They were warriors and mothers. I come from hardy stock!
