Happy Halloween Blackrock!

    Yes, unintentionally but ever so appropriately I’ve landed in a town called Blackrock. It is a small suburb of a slightly larger town called Dundalk in Co. Louth. This is just below the border of Northern Ireland. I booked a B&B here merely (or so I thought) as a connector between the Giant’s…

Washed Up In Waterville

Well folks, this has been again another interesting couple of days…to say the very least. My last post has me sitting in an internet cafe in a nameless town. Turns out the nameless town is called Waterville and it is the very last stop on the Ring of Kerry tour. Also turns out that the…

Clamming for the Craic

  Well, you all know I’m sort of a random person….I don’t think I ever spent 2 days with a more random crowd since the spanish club on the cruise when I was 12. I arrived in Dingle on Wednesday night, exhausted again after 5 hours worth of bus rides. The road to Dingle is…

Fairs, Friends and Farewells

Today, here, the date reads, 20-10-2010, weird huh?! Alright, last few weeks, guys. Can you even believe it?! I certainly cannot. So many things have happened. So much change. So many emotions. So little time… In my last post I mentioned going to the movies, that was Wednesday the 6th, that entire week, including both…

On the road again

    I wrote the following post over a week ago. I never finished it but I thought I’d share it today none the less. A lot has changed since then…but I’ll be updating you all soon enough. ********** Sunday 10 October 2010!! (10-10-10 craziness!) What in the heck? Time is absolutely flying me around…

The French Circus & The Mountain Full O’ Gold

“Have you an Irish farmer?” “Emm…you mean as a love interest?” “Sure. Yeah.” “Nope, no, still searchin’ for an Irish lad.” And that was how the craic began. Over my cup of tea and his pint of Guinness, Joe, a local from the pub at the Buckfield Inn, the B&B in Kilmeena which I stayed…

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

Thanks everyone for reading! I didn’t realize how much you would all like to know what’s going on! When I started work this morning, we were harvesting lettuce in the fields. Gregor, who speaks very broken English was showing me how to do it, cutting the lettuce at the root, “Bang, zang, tang, done. See?…
