“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ― Sylvia Plath


Cicadas and Monkeys and Macaws oh my!
Jan 17th: Last night we had a funny jungle adventure. We got all snuggled up in our new bed only to realize there were two cicadas in our room! Cicadas are pretty large insects with large bulging eyes and they make the LOUDEST sound I’ve ever heard an insect make. They fly around constantly just...

Wind of Change
Jan 15th: January 15th is supposed to be the saddest day of the year – according to someone who had the time to figure this out I guess.  But pointing it out this year meant I get to say – not for us!  We woke up in paradise! The jungle is far noisier than any...

A Pint of Gat
December 30th: Oh I’m sorry, were you expecting me to stop talking about Guinness? A pint of gat – another word for Guinness. As I write this I am craving one, wishing I had kept my promise to myself to keep my blog in as close to real time as possible, so that I would...

Getting Lost & Taking Selfies in Dublin
December 27th: It’s that time in our lives when everyone around us is getting married, having babies, and building homes.  There seems to be at least 3 weddings a year!  With Clover being from Ireland, myself from Canada, and family all over the world, it’s near impossible to attend all the celebrations! So when it...

Shamrock Christmas
Dec 24th: Ah Christmas Eve.  The beginning of a few days of eating, sleeping, drinking, and sitting by the fire in our joggers. The table had been set for a few days, with all the décor necessary to make it a very traditional Christmas.  The fireplace seemed to be on for most of the afternoons...

The Wild Atlantic
As we have been behind in our blogging, I thought adding some dates might help!   Dec 18th: Just added another terrible sleep to the list this week, but was happy to have woken up at ‘home’.  Luggage took its sweet time but it was now in Ireland!  Saskia was nice enough to hop on the...

An Island Awaits Us
Our story continues….this post is from December – enjoy! I woke up just the same as I have every day the last few weeks.  No real thoughts, just actions.  There hasn’t been a lot of time for thinking as we have never been so busy in our entire lives. But this morning was a little...

Ah all the goodbyes.  Toronto seems to have me coming back over and over again, which really makes all the goodbyes more like ‘see you later’.  I am grateful to the friends who have attended my farewell parties, all 3 of them, and still made it to the 4th.  Thank you for your commitment! This...
