Coming to Ya Live from Ireland

Coming to Ya Live from Ireland

I don't even know where to begin. It's strange being here.  I'm torn between feeling perfectly normal and horribly out of place.

New England Road Trip: Day 2

Picking up where we left off on the New England Road Trip. We planned day two to be a bit more relaxed than day one.  There wasn't as heavy a rush to leave first thing in the morning due to a long drive.  We set off around 9.00am towards Plymouth. Now we didn't really know [...]

Even More Stuff That I Miss From Ireland

Of all the things I miss about Dublin, I think the architecture and parks are the two that surprises me most.

Am I Afraid to Travel?

Am I Afraid to Travel?
