When Irish Eyes are Smiling

In Ireland by Kim Mahaney1 Comment

Being the MAHANEY family and all, we figured we should at least explore our legendary ancestors.  At least we hope to find someone that was legendary!  Our tiny bags are packed and we are headed to our first stop Dublin, Ireland.  Where we will be getting a rental car and after ZERO sleep, will attempt to crush ourselves into a tiny car and drive on the wrong side of the road, with the gear shift on the wrong side of the car.  I like to call this the Marriage test.. Hopefully I’ll be able to do better this time.  In Italy, I got in the car and immediately went the wrong way down a one way street.  Danny drove the rest of the time.  Oops.  But hey… We’re still married!!!  He loves me in spite of my shortcomings! 

So we have a pretty hefty itinerary for the next several weeks.  I’m so excited for this trip!  It was scheduled last year but because of my back surgery we had to cancel.  So I’ve had a longgggggg time to dream of this adventure that has grown exponentially since the inception. Danny says I’m a travel addict.  I can’t just be satisfied with  a 1 week trip somewhere… I have to turn it into a regional trip, hit every highlight, leave no stone unturned or castle undiscovered.  That’s ME… I’m a go big or go home kind of girl.  

Stay tuned for more adventure stories.
