Irrigation, Meditation and A Small Vacation…

Wow, WoW, WOW!!! From Friday I’ve had the largest range and variety of emotions since Miranda found out her ex-husband was dressing up like an old woman to Nanny their children. – Please for the love of God I hope someone gets that Mrs. Doubtfire reference. Anywho, the Aran Islands changed my life! I woke…

INTERNET STILL NOT WORKING!

Hey Everyone, my wireless is still completely messed up, and my computer is about to die! But I wanted to let you all know that a post is coming soon complete with pictures of the 2500 year old fort called Dun Angeus from the Aran Island Innishmore!! I know I spelled most of those words…

And Then There Was Rain…Going on 4 Days Worth

So, our internet is basically down. I’m sitting in the office now connected to the ethernet cable, how old school, hahaha. Well the following post is a long and little scattered as I wrote most of it while traveling by bus and train and sitting in the coffee shops. So please forgive! 🙂 Athenry Castle…

Bulls, Burns and Battle Scars

I woke up Friday believing it was Thursday. It wasn’t until LUNCHTIME that I figured it out! hahaha Weird how that happens. Anyway, I guess after I found that out I started to let myself relax a bit and the week started to hit me. By the time I got done harvesting onions last night…

Bang, Zang, Tang, Done

Top A The Mornin’ To Ya

Well friends and family. I’ve officially made it. What feels like “this” morning, was actually yesterday morning and what feels like tonight is actually tomorrow night…or something like that. There’s a delightful chill in the air as I’m sitting outside of Shannon Airport at 7:35 in the morning waiting for the bus to take me…

Unattended Baggage Will Be Searched and May Be Destroyed

I’ve finally made it! Made it through the hectic, anxiety-ridden drive that everyone warned me about. Made it through baggage check in with one small roll-y bag (no charge the first bag) and two too heavy to carry for long periods of time carry-ons. – Technically one is my purse…but, you know. Danielle and I…

Travel, Explore, Drink a Pint…Whatever

The last few weeks have been so hectic, it’s UNREAL! I’m so glad I got to hang out with so many people though – it’s been a blast. I wanted to write one last post trip blog post (whew, say that three times fast) to give some information about my trip. Danielle has graciously offered…
