First place

If I could visit any country, I would go to Italy. There is lots of water and I would like to go on a gondola. My parents told me that there are a lot of beautiful museums and galleries with nice pictures. The pictures were made by one of the famous artist Michelangelo. Their food is delicious. They have the best pizza and pasta in the world. It's wonderful to go shopping because they have fancy designers. Everything is so beautiful and looks like a nice dream. Everywhere you can hear music. I would like to go to Italy every year with my family to share the beautiful things in this country.

Second place

I would like to go to Rome, Italy. I would like to go there because of the pizza, pasta and all of the delicious Italian food. I would also like to go there because of all the historical landmarks, artifacts and statues. My dad travels all around the world and once he went to Rome. One day I hope he would take me to Rome or Paris, France. I'm a Europe fanatic! Thank you Europe!

Third place

If I ever have a chance to go anywhere in the world, I would go to El Salvador. I would go there because that's where my mom is from and that's very important to me and my culture. I always wanted to go there since I was a little girl. It would be a pleasure to me to get to know more where my family is from. My mom always tells me beautiful stories from when she was younger, and how she described it, it sounded like it was a beautiful land, with beautiful, different fruity plants and flowers, big waterfalls, lakes, ponds, beautiful houses and all kinds of animals. It's a really beautiful place and it means a lot to me, and that's why I would like to visit El Salvador.

If I could visit any country I would go to Scotland and Ireland. There are Scottish homes there. The houses have clear white paint on them. The foods in Ireland are delicious. The bread is wonderful. The last reason why I want to go to Ireland and Scotland is my family is from there. I hope I can go there one day with my family.

Well, I would like to go to Mexico. Why? So I could visit my cousins, grandparents, uncles and aunts. I could even go to the oceans there. Also I could go to the capital so I could visit the president. Me and my family would have to take care of the barn animals such as pigs, horses and more. However I would even help my grandma do dinner and breakfast.

I would go to Canada because I want to visit my grandfather and to have lots of fun, see what it looks like, the beautiful rivers and stuff. I would want to know how to talk Canadian. I'd like to see new birds like a bluebird and a robin. I'd like to see what the cities look like.

I would go to the country France. I will go to the tower and learn how to speak French and go to school and eat pasta. I would go to fairs and ride on many rides and learn about
the money and how
much it's worth.

I would like to visit Germany so I can see the leaning tower. I would love to go into it before it collapses to the ground. I would also learn how to speak their language and when I come back I would teach everyone how to speak German.

I'd go to Europe because I like seeing old stuff, other people and learning their culture. I love learning other cultures and respecting their culture because they respect us so we should too. I like to see old stuff because I never got to see them before. Also, they are very valuable. The people who I never met at Europe probably might speak funny but it is their language. They might not understand me, but when they do I will be happy for them.

I would go to Japan. Gonichiwa, everyone, that's Japanese for hi! I love Japan because it has great tasting food! Sushi, bento, dumplings ... dumplings bento and all those other foods are very traditional in Japan. Plus it is very beautiful in Japan. There are lots of water and food markets and lots of yarn sown clothes and accessories. I also love Japan for cool celebrations. Lots of exploding mixes of color in the air and special games and dances. I love Japan!

I would love to go to Antartica because I love the snow and I have never been to the snow before in my entire life. But I would have to bring a lot of warm stuff if I ever go. But if I don't I still probably will when I'm older.

I would like to visit the Antarctic because it is cold there. I think visiting new places like Antarctica and China would be fun. It is not fun just staying in the same place, like me, I have never visited the Antacrtic or China. I have seen it in pictures, but I have never seen it in real life.

I'll go to Mexico because my grandma is there and even my little cousin. My grandma sent me a doll. She even sent us a video of my little cousin's birthday. And I miss my grandma a lot. I wish she was right here. And my little cousin is so cute. I miss my grandma and cousin.

I would go to Italy because I could see beautiful places. I could also listen to Italian music and go on a gondola ride. Another reason is because my great-grandma is from Italy and I would love to see where she grew up. I could also see great monuments like the leaning tower of Pisa. These monuments also mean a lot to me because my ancestors also loved these great places.

I would go to Japan because I would like to buy many artifacts there, like Japanese swords and maybe gems. I also have wanted to take lessons on how to speak Japanese, so maybe I could take a class. Many cartoons that I like have also been created in Japan. I could buy toys and video games there too. That is where I want to go and why.

If I could go anywhere in the world it would be Lebanon. But why would I choose Lebanon? Because of how you would wake up in the morning and of the divine beaches. When you wake up in the morning the sun radiates on your face and says, "Today is a new day!" The beaches are also great. Especially the by-passing fish in the distance. As you walk down the ocean path you feel the sand grabbing your feet and clinging to your shoes. When you lie down on your towel and see the ravishing sun disappear in the far range, you fall asleep and let the moonlight coruscate on your face.

Who can resist the wonders of Brazil? I certainly can't! All the beautiful sights to see and the adventure. That's why if I could go to any country in the world, it would be Brazil. Why? Because I want to go rafting down a waterfall. Imagine mist spraying your face as you plunge downward. Splash! You cover your eyes as a wave of tropical-temperatured water hits your face. That's why I want to go to Brazil.
