The Comforts of Home…
No matter where we may be in the world, the Irish always have been gifted at adapting to new cultures and new customs. We have a long history of immigration that is still ongoing today with housing crises in all our major cities, lack of public transport pretty much all over the country and lets not forget the harsh climate that we all have to endure on our little island.
While I’ll never regret emigrating at such a young age, there is a huge amount of things about home that I miss a lot. For today’s post (and since I am still in Ireland) I thought I would share them with you! Let’s start.
Home From Abroad
It’s been two years since I last saw a summer in Ireland and now that I’m back, I couldn’t feel happier to be home.
As much as I love Paris, I’m pretty happy that I haven’t spent much of August in it. There’s nothing quite like escaping to the countryside, especially when that countryside is the place where you grew up.
One of the places on the top of my list to revisit when I was back in Ireland was Glendalough which is an enchanting lake and ruined monastery located not too far away from Dublin. I made a video there last Autumn that you can check out here but otherwise the photos I took this time are pretty spectacular too!
This past week I have been absolutely dying to escape the bustle of Paris and head to the countryside for a couple of days. My cousin, Mairéad lives a quick train ride from Paris in the North of France so we decided to spend a few days together in a small, but very charming provincial city called Beauvais.
