Mindful of Ireland

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches I am mindful of Ireland.  Yet, the celebration of all that is Irish here in the US is a big stretch from my thoughts of Emerald Isle.

Have you been?  If not, put it on the must-do list.  It’s lovely with the perfect blend of a few cosmopolitan, yet small scale cities, charming villages, stunning, rural landscapes, views to the sea, fantastic food, cultural richness and engaging people.  Oh, an of course, there’s great beer too without the goofy, green plastic hats.
