I'm very grateful I'm going so soon (I leave Friday, September 19th), because I NEED to get away from New York for a while. I need to be surrounded by green, growing things. I need a new environment, a new perspective, a myriad of new experiences. Nature. I can't wait to be surrounded by it! I'll also be there when the Autumnal Equinox is, so you know it's gunna be a good time :)
While I have a rough outline of what I'm going to do, nothing is concretely set - which is exhilarating! I can't wait to just wander the streets of Dublin, walk across the countryside of Dingle, and touch the ruins from ages past. I know it will spark my creativity (which has been sorely absent since moving here), and I'm looking forward to finishing my fairy tale.
I will take many pictures, taste many brews, and talk to new people. I look forward to discovering a new part of myself. I don't expect to discover WHO I am, but on any trip, on any adventure, you learn something new. And if there's one thing I crave, it's to continually learn new things - either about myself, or the world, or people as a whole.
