So being the good patient and happy traveler that I am, I searched for flights and found an unbelievable roundtrip ticket to Ireland for $220! I was very tired and still not really well so I decided to book a tour so I didn’t have to plan anything. A few days before the trip the tour was cancelled, it was winter in Ireland and they simply did not have enough people signed up to go. I paused for a split second and then decided I would go and drive myself following the same itinerary that the tour had planned.
I picked up my car in Dublin and set out to see the country. I wasn’t too far outside of the city when I had to pull over – I was crying so hard I could not see where I was driving. Not only was the countryside gorgeous but the people were so kind and nurturing; I knew I needed to spend more time in this beautiful place. So after an unbelievable week - I returned home, quit my job and booked another trip to continue my Irish adventure…..
