Sarika and I are about to leave for Ireland in a couple of days! Ahh, the feel of a trip to Europe. The freedom to experience the joy of history, nature and travel.
This will be my third time to Ireland; and, Sarika’s first trip. There is still so much to see and experience. The Irish people always delight me with their energy.
On Wednesday, we will head to the Emerald Isle. The feeling is palpable.
For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed civilization, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints. ~ Robert Louis Stevensons
