I Traveled To Ireland And Got… A Suntan!
by Ramona Flightner/@ramonaflightner
As I packed for my recent trip to Ireland with my family, I found a warm pair of wool socks. Forewarned by a cousin that the weather in Ireland had been cold and wet, I wanted to be prepared. I packed warm tops and only a few tee shirts. I discouraged my mum from bringing sandals, for who would need sandals in 55 degree weather and rain?
As it turns out, Ireland experienced some of the best weather in years. In fact, it was the warmest place in Europe at least one of my days there. While parts of Europe dealt with historic floods, the sun shone on the Emerald Isle.
The glorious weather allowed us to see places I had previously seen only through the mists and rain more common to Ireland. I never wore those socks, and dreamt of sandals on a few days, extremely thankful for the amazing weather. I know I have just returned, and yet, I am already dreaming of my next trip to Ireland.
Have you been to Ireland? What were some of your favorite memories?
