I write to you now, sitting at my desk at work (wildly behind on my to-do list) sleep deprived but still in a happy haze from the past 7 days of touring Ireland. In a trip I can only describe as the best one ever, I happily explored the culturally rich and complicated lands of Northern Ireland then making my way to the magical and breathtaking landscapes of western/southern/central Ireland. This, mixed with fun and interesting people (Australians, New Zealanders!), various kinds of food and drink, and charming little towns and smiling sheep dotting the landscape, laughing myself hoarse, dancing myself in circles, and generally taking enough pictures to max out all the memory cards known to man.
Here are some of the eye candy highlights!
