Finding Luck on Your Travels
Whether you’re on the look out for a four-leaf clover, a lucky rabbit’s foot, or some other charm that will give you good luck, chances are you’ve come across legends about what you can do on your travels to garner some good luck.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, here are a few places where you can try your hand at changing your fate and getting some good luck!
Earlier this week, we honored the beautiful landscape of Cork, Ireland, home to Blarney Castle. Kissing the Blarney Stone is said to give you the gift of eloquence. What better luck than to be able to talk your away out of anything, right?
The Trevi Fountain
Close your eyes and throw a coin over your shoulder – whether you’re wishing for good fortune, better health, or just a guarantee that you’ll return to Italy, this is one beautiful place to visit!
The Giant Seated Buddha
Located on Lantau Island is the largest seated Buddha statue in the world. People flock to this statue, located outside of Hong Kong, to pay their respects and burn incense for good fortune and take in the scenic views.
Casa di Giulietta
Last year, YouTube beauty guru Michelle Phan and fellow guru AndreasChoice visited Verona, Italy on Contiki’s Italian Espresso tour and visited the balcony that was said to inspire William Shakespeare when writing Romeo and Juliet. There is a statue of Juliet in the courtyard, said to provide good luck – watch the video above as Andrea discovers this for herself!
