I’m Going to Ireland, Y’all!
Y’all, I am so excited! On Thursday, my friend Stacie and her friend, Lisa, and I are leaving for Ireland. I have never been out of the country, except for Mexico and Jamaica. I am a compulsive budgeter/saver and have had a vacation fund for years, but I have never used the money for an international trip. Until now! Ireland recently legalized gay marriage, so I am thrilled that my first trip will be there. We are renting a car and spending time in Dublin, Dingle (what a funny name), Kilarney and Cork/Kinsale. I anticipate taking many pictures, walking a lot (I am shooting for 150,000 steps for the trip), enjoying the local culinary (or my protein bars – whatever looks better) and making a ton of memories. Have any of you been to Ireland? Any tips or recommendations? I have my travel guide, but would love to hear any firsthand experiences. I’m also headed to Iceland in September, so holler if you have any advice for that trip, too!
