We arrived in Ireland!

Updated: Sep 17, 2021

After weeks of biting my fingers nails, the arrival of my passport and visa finally came! It was exhilarating to see the FedEx envelope on the porch and quite a surprise since I received no heads up that it was approved and on it's way.

First Class? Heck yeah! This is the beginning of the rest of my life. I deserve to travel in style!

TIP: Upgrade just before the flight and you can get a serious discount on first class travel :)

Here are some highlights from the first few days of our journey.

Ireland: Left Side, Right Side??

Driving on the left side of the road is just wrong when everything you know is right. HA! That was kind of punny and I know you're smiling! In all seriousness, I'm grateful we opted for an automatic so there was one less thing to try learning while driving at higher speeds on tiny ass roads. I am happy to report after day 2 of driving, my knuckles are no longer white and my shoulders are starting to relax.

Irish Castle and Grounds

Our first night was in the Kilronan Castle and Spa

My favorite part was the mystical walk on the fairy trail through the castle grounds. Eery and magical at the same time! I urged myself through some fears that I might get eaten by some wild animal and am so glad I did. I have let the fear of doing things alone, stop me from experiencing so much in my life. It turned out to be a peaceful trek and wait.... I lived! Turns out I can do things on my own, nothing bad happens and I actually enjoy myself.


Stay tuned for the rest of the Ireland trip! I am tuckered out from an amazing day of seaside cliff walks to forest waterfall hiking and all the tense, nail biting, lean in so the car doesn't hit the side of the wall driving :)
