About this blog

This year's adventure is appropriately named the Isle of Erin (Ireland). I've been dreaming of the fields of green since a coworker went about 15 years ago.

I had been planning a solo European Escapade this year, due to an unnamed family member that didn't want to venture out to Europe this year (for good reason). And when I mentioned the idea of Scotland/Ireland, my mom said, "Well, if you go there I'm coming with you!"

So my destination was easily chosen and quickly narrowed down. We'll be concentrating on Western Ireland, to minimize time wasted driving and maximize prime sight-seeing opportunities.

We plan on many fun-filled days of scenic coastlines and ancient ruins. Any many nights in the pubs, filled with Irish music and pints of lager. I also plan on trying a Guinness and Irish whiskey at least once.

I apologize in advance, but my blog will likely be quite detailed. The older I get, the harder it is to remember anything! And hopefully we will have plenty of time to keep you updated!

Happy Travels!
