Solo Trip to Ireland

I took a leap of faith on a solo trip to Ireland. What I uncovered was more faith and courage in myself, an awakened creative side, many, many new friends around the world, and my Irish roots. We really are a lucky bunch.

“May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.” – Irish Blessing

Day 2 of 10 | Dublin, Ireland. Temple Bar and Jameson Distillery Tour. “Sine Metu” Without Fear is on the label of their whiskey bottles and speaks to their history as a company trying to make it in a war-torn time, overcoming a lot of obstacles to follow their passions and succeed. That hit me hard, and spoke to a lot to the reservations I had leading up to that day. Fear puts up a lot of doubt, but it’s pushing through that that leads to great experiences. I wouldn’t have made all of these great connections. Met people from Germany, the Netherlands, Serbia, Canada, Chicago, San Diego, UCLA (my Alma mater!) and New Jersey during and after the Jameson Tour (also our tour guide looked like Harry Potter). Jameson bringing people together. And more importantly we wouldn’t have Jameson. 🙂 #eatprayguinness #slainte Sign reads: Everyone who passes through this door brings happiness. Some Some by entering. Some by leaving. Photo credit 📷: to my new Canadian friend I met at the Jameson Tour! Also shoutout to my new UK friend that said my backpack made me look like a #ghostbuster. Forever friends we will be. #eatprayjameson (Also some art market wanderings before getting to Jameson)

Day 3 of 10 | Rental Car, Galway, Quays Bar (Pronounced Keys) Oh hey, Galway, I see you. Took 2 hours at the rental car facility to get my rental car 🚗, but was able to book my BnBs in line 🙌🏻. Was given this gem that helped me navigate left side (strong side) driving and made it to Galway! Early morning run with the one and only @clvshrpr last day in Dublin! She taught me to look left. (No, right?) Met teachers and peripherally the owner of the fish and chips place McDonagh’s via said teachers. And met such warm, lovely people, my Galway family mum and dad @marilynmcnamaraadams @eadams431 Love you guys! Thanks for taking me under your wings. Photo credit 📷: @eadams431 look at his stuff! AND a bridal party rolled in. I love me a good wedding 💕🌻 (Backpack appearance once again)
