Erin go Bragh.....we've all heard it. But did you know what it means?
Did you know that it is Gaelic for "Ireland Forever"?
My ancestry is mainly Irish with a little Russian thrown in for flavor. My grandmother taught me some Russian that she knew when I was a kid, and I still to this day will still use some phrases. I wish I could have learned more Gaelic.
I've learned a lot about Ireland, at one low point in my life I even considered moving there.
The people are so friendly, the towns have a kinship you would never know as an outsider. But it doesn't take long before you are no longer a outsider.
The lush green mountainsides. The blue sea. A Country full of myths and legends.
I've always wanted to go, and have been offered a trip twice, and turned it down for what, at the time seemed like good reasons not to go. I know, STUPID!
Someday, I'd love to take two weeks and just go....1st class all the way. See what there is to see, meet people, take it all in, because it will be a once in a lifetime trip! And in that trip I'm going to get that Irish accent down pat!!
So in the mean time, I'll think about it, I'll attempt to save my pennies for it, and maybe by the time I retire I will be able to go. And I hope between now and then, it doesn't change much!
Where do you want to go?
