Yes… I am returning to Ireland.
I had a wonderful time this summer. If I could use one word to describe June, I would use “saw”. As my vacation wound down, I simply felt like I wasn’t finished. Sara and I saw A LOT! We put over 2,200 miles on that ugly, orange car.
My one word theme for this trip is … “explore.” I simply want to wander. I have a list of possibilities, but I am working hard not lock in a schedule. I want the same flexibility we had this summer; going with the ‘flow.’
- Christmas Markets (Kilkenny, Waterford, Killarney ….)
- St Nicholas’s gravesite, as legend has it
- Window shopping
- Christmas Mass
- Photography … Yes, even in December/January
- and much, much more ….
My packing is almost complete. Sophie is a bit worried … She is heading with me tomorrow for Lena, IL. She will once again stay with my parents.
With that, I will be posting … as an American in Ireland over the holidays.
