Linda and I, along with about forty other Keloland viewers, are about to be “Enchanted” for the next nine days. We’re leaving on another “Holiday Vacations” adventure which, I’ll bet, has many of you “green” with envy. We’ll be spending 10 hours in airports and another 10 hours on airplanes before arriving in Dublin, Ireland, but it’s a small price for the chance to actually experience in person those 40 shades of green we hear so much about on the Emerald Isle.
We’ll be going around in circles for the next week..actually making the beautiful “Circle Tour” of Ireland from Dublin, Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Limerick, Killarney, Blarney, Kilkenny and back to Dublin.
I wonder if Linda, who is half Irish, will feel the kinship with her motherland as much as I did when we visited Norway several years ago. I hope so. I suppose it’s possible for me to feel that sense of homecoming too since MY ancestors, the Vikings, have such a long history of invading and settling Ireland.
We hope to do all the touristy things while there from touring castles and kissing Blarney Stones to drinking Guinness, eating Mulligan stew and singing Irish pub songs in REAL Irish pubs.
As always, I’ll have my laptop and camera along; posting several Lund at Large blogs on Keloland.com so you can follow along with us and perhaps figure a way that you can include one of these trips for yourself in the future.
