We then travelled to the site of the Battle of the Boyne, fought in 1690 between two rival claimants of the English, Scottish, and ...
... the world without leaving a job, or house, or girl, or kids behind. I know one day I will be back home and with my friends and family but for now I've just got to enjoy life while I'm here, it's off to a good start.
Leaving my dad at the airport was terrifying, way worse than it was when I left for college. Flight to Toronto was good and quick. The girl next to me en route to Dublin was a girl from ...
