I've always dreamed of traveling out of the country, but have never had the opportunity. I've stayed a bit mum about some exciting news, simply because I wanted to make sure it was positively going to happen, but I'm happy to share that for 11 days in April and May, Sean and I are joining my incredible in-laws on a trip to the motherland — IRELAND!
I love to imagine I'll get to travel the world in my lifetime, but if I could only visit a couple places, Ireland is at the top of my list. My mother-in-law's parents came to America from the Dingle Peninsula, and she graciously invited us to join her and father-in-law when they go to visit this spring. We're still footing our travel costs, but without their help, it wouldn't be possible. I feel very lucky and blessed.
Now that I know it's for real going to happen (and I have a passport!), I'm starting to research things to do in some of the places we'll visit, including:
Belfast (photo from here.
Dingle Peninsula (photo from here)
Donegal (photo from here).
and of course, Dublin. (photo from here.)
Sean's been lucky enough to go to Ireland a few times, but I have no idea what to expect. Have any of you ever been? What was your favorite part of your trip? What surprised you the most? What should I be sure to pack, and what should I be sure to bring back with me? Please share!
P.S., when I picture visiting Ireland, I picture myself dressed like this Marc by Marc Jacobs outfit:
A girl can dream, can't she?
