I have had some lovely visitors this year. Some of my oldest and most loyal friends have found themselves on my floor. From Syd and Julia, whom I shared a home, and innumerable laughs with, for 4 years. To Marina who I instantly bonded with in Welcome Week of first year, and haven’t stopped bonding with since. To my cousin Rachael who’s really should write a book on How to Do All of Ireland in 10 days or less. I am incredibly grateful to be able to have shared a guiness (or 4) with these amazing people.
My lovely parents came to visit the emerald isle! We explored Dublin and did all of the museums that I couldn’t afford otherwise, after which we took off to the countryside for a few days. We stayed in the beautiful and scenic Dunmore East, before heading back to the bustling Dublin city. My Dad and I then spent the next three days recording my EP. What a champ my mom was to explore the city on her own while we were in the studio! I absolutely loved having my OG travel buddies around.
I had the chance to explore more of Ireland this month, and even better, with a good friend from University. We went all the way across the Island, to the Cliffs of Moher, and then made our way back through little villages and along the stunning Irish coast, sprinkled with trappings of granite, thousands of miles of penny walls, and grazing cattle.
