I had yearned to travel ever since my 20s but raising a family and forging a career delayed those dreams until I was 44.
In 2001, Andrew and I took our first major trip OS and I was jumping out of my skin!
After the whirlwind Trafalgar tour of Europe, we hired a car and drove around England and Scotland.
However the highlight of that trip was Ireland. I fell in love. It was a homecoming. Something deep inside clicked into place. It is only fitting to launch my new travel blog with my story of Ireland.
