so what is Ireland like? 4 COMMENTS

(post dated April 20th, 2015)

Well, so far it has been a roller coaster.

If i’m honest I completely underestimated how difficult moving to another continent would be. I thought, as someone who travels professionally that I would be very able to handle this move, but the truth is it is really hard.  I never get homesick on tour, but actually feeling that your “home” is in a different place makes a big difference.  I love so much about ireland already and I am continually learning new things, creating new experiences and memories and establishing new and old friends.  I think that is what home is about, so I am just trying to be patient with myself. But in the mean time, it is difficult. Many days of feeling kind of lost and some totally embarrassing moments of freaking out because you miss food from home, or crying in the shower.

 

Most days are amazing though. The past week has been really sunny, and I had the pleasure of touring around the country a lot to see some new places. Some of the highlights:  Killarney, Wexford, Cork, Dublin.  Of course being at home in Galway is different everyday!  I have learned to drive here, and more even more exciting, I learned to surf!!  Well I am terrible at it, but it is such a fun challenge to get our there, get some exercise but mostly drive around the beautiful irish coastline. The thing about surfing here is that it is F#@%-ing freezing. So I went to buy a wetsuit, and having never put one on before, I thought the whole process was hilarious.

 

Every day is a new adventure, a new challenge.  Looking forward to going to Germany and Paris next week.  My first trip away from my new home.
