The Luck of Beautiful Ireland




Ireland, the beautiful, windy, and wild country has always been top on my bucket list. Like so many others who have visited this beautiful land, to spend time here is a step back in history. Curt gave in and we planned for a wonderful trip here in October 2019 to visit castles, ruins, and the gorgeous Cliffs of Moher. Along the way, we were immersed in history and romance and met some wonderful new friends. Everyone needs a little Ireland in their soul!
