Ireland is my favorite country outside of my own. I would love to visit all of the old castles and the rolling hills as well as Dublin and Belfast and the rest of the cities. I'd also love to kiss the Blarney Stone.
Okay technically I didn't get 'front row tickets' but I have had general admission floor tickets a few times where I have managed to get myself right up to the front row including Tiesto, The Crystal Method, and probably a few more that are escaping my memory at the moment.
I rode in a gondola this summer and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! The guy giving us the ride sang in italian and told us about gondolas and venice. This sould definitly be on your bucket list! Best. Trip. Ever!! Hope to go to Italy again sometime :)
