IM GOING TO IRELAND IN TWO DAYS!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!
Totally a last minute decision! I was initially going to go to Ireland in June as my graduation present from my parents. . . . however, next week is my spring break from school and the trip is almost half the price if I go now instead of in the summer. My mother had suggested that maybe I go next week and save some moo-lahhh. We started looking up flights/B&B/etc. and have officially reserved our tickets today!! We will be gone for 7 nights, 9 days! I am so nervous, excited, freaking out!!! We have so much to do and so little time to do it in. . . . today will be packed with confirming reservations, making itineraries and plans, packing, so on and so forth.
Ireland. . . . .
That land of mystery, romance and full of history. What is it about this emerald isle that calls to me? I have always had a passion for traveling to Europe, but Ireland most of all. I have dreamed of living there in a small cottage with several acres of land, horses, a few goats, my dogs and a scooter/motorbike. I have dreamed of getting married there in a castle with just my closest friends and family. I have dreamed of experiencing the culture and richness of the Irish heritage. I don’t know when my passion for this island started. . but it might have been after I read “Scarlett” (the continuation of “Gone with the Wind”). I have recently acquired a desire to learn Irish tap dancing (after attending Riverdance with Janell in January) ha! Wow. . . I can’t believe that my dream is actually becoming a reality!
