Off to Dublin in the green in the green…

| June 22, 2008 | 0 Comments

Heading off to Ireland for our family “graduation celebration.” My wife, Rita, Danny (just graduated from high school) and Bridget (just graduated from grammar school) are setting out for our second international family trip.

While I’m 100% Irish descent, I’ve never been to the Old Sod. I’m struggling with conflicting feelings. On the one I’ve listened my whole life to stories of Ireland. All the counties and even the towns have names that are very familiar. Ireland is built into both my DNA and my psyche.

On the other hand, I have no idea what to expect. We’ve had one foreign family trip to Florence, which was magical. On this trip, we will have the benefit of some friends and family who will help guide us along. So, while it does not seem quite the adventure of previous foreign trips, I still feel like we are entering the unknown. I hope to be able to post comments, pictures and even videos throughout the week. So, feel free to check back.
