Dreaming Europe ^___^

When I was still in my fourth grade, my father brought home a glossy, life size calendar featuring some of the best holiday destinations in Europe. My 10-year-old mind glued on the breathtaking sight of Veyvey,which I found, a milk dominated farm in Eastern Switzerland (home of Nestle Food Company, known as Societe de Produits Nestle in their local tongue).

The magnificent sight features cows and sheep gnawing green grass on the scallop mountain. It was a childhood fascination that triggered my innocent mind to discover the other side of the planet, well, EUROPE in particular.

I started clipping articles, pictures or anything I found in my father's desk (much to his fury) that has Europe in it. Until I become of age, this European thing fascination evolved into another layer of dream. To really travel to the continent. The rocky mountains of Switzerland, the mystical region of Burgundy in France, the romantic surrounding of Tuscany in Italy, the breathtaking scenery of  Cornwall in England and the romantic beaches in Greece and Monaco are just some of my childhood dreamed holiday escapes. 

London is an exciting city, I supposed, with all its splendor and sophistication it's hardly a boring place to visit.The Big Ben, Buckingham palace, Westminster Abbey, Parks and the Tower of London are just few of England's enthralling landmarks, STONEHENGE in Wiltshire, across the Salisbury plains is a breathtaking ancient wonders. Windor Castle, which Samuel Pepys (a 17th century diarist)described as the most romantic castle in the world, is a cobbled fortress located in Royal Berkshire above the placid Thames river, it's an ancient symbol of the British Monarchy and the weekend residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the current head of the Royal House of Windsor. Across the English Channel lies France, Paris, its capital, is said to be the most romantic city in the world (I'm yet to discover why)as the old adage goes:come to Paris and discover romance.

Then there's Monaco, a tiny principality ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, it is often a favorite honeymoon destination of the rich and the famous, the privilege and the glamorous cavorting to the classy resort of Cote de Azur.Well, well considering the high price (a whopping 6 digit figures in euro)you'll spend by taking a single step there, it's a bit challenging-financially.

Why not take on the nearest border, Italy, of course, still romantic as Monaco.The region of Tuscany is just as captivating as Burgundy in France with its vast winery vineyard overlooking the artistic city of Florence.Venice on the northern part is famous for Gondola, many exciting couples eagerly waiting for a dreamy vacation, find a boat ride in the Venetian wide canal, a worthwhile experience.

Traveling to Scandinavian peninsula maybe not be a perfect idea, but Norway in particular is a sort of paradise, known to travelers as the Land of Midnight Sun, it's a place rarely visited by Diana or Artemis or Apollo.Fjord in the countryside is refreshing as the English Lake District, Grasmere (home of the poet William Wordsworth) where beautifully cultivated Hangerias sprouted.

Above all, I still consider Scotland,in the British isle, as the best place to explore where pageantry and history blended regally. The ancient castles of the early Scottish royals still stood imposing. The Culloden Moor (the last battle ground of English and Scottish wars where the Bonnie King, Charlie Stuart, defeated by the advancing army of the English King, Edward II). It offers scenic views of the historical ground of Fort William and Loch Ness, where hunting expedition of the European aristocrats usually held.

Isle of Skye in Oarkney Island is a spectacular boating and fishing destination that would not be missed. Glasgow (Scotland's biggest city)is the most orderly and beautifully governed city in the world(according to Compton Encyclopedia),hardly no beggars, street children and sidewalk vendors. Lifestlye in Glasgow, is far from radical or liberated.Scotland, I think is a lot safer than England.Terrorists might think twice in detonating bombs in the hinterlands, they'll not spend a huge amount anyway if only geese and bushes are the victims.

Philippines is still a paradise country to live, but isn't it a wonderful lifetime journey if we could, even once, visit another land, not to work (and endure the rant of bully employers),but to taste the life of just being there, sipping champagne, dining regional foods, walking around, rubbing elbows with fellow travelers and the good feeling of experiencing life itself.
