It was that intense feeling of being totally and completely at peace in my life (perhaps for the very first time) that was so incredible to me. The countryside is unbelievably beautiful with the lush green rolling hills and lovely villages and towns scattered about but it is the people that I remain so enamored with. To say the Irish are friendly is truly an understatement. Their warmth and generosity are something very special and unique in the world. Just thinking of that beautiful green place fills my heart with joy!
