The Emerald Isle, my five years anniversary!

Today is the 28th of June, which means that five years ago, I landed in Rosslare!  This followed: saying goodbye to family and friends; an epic drive through France with my car packed with clothes, houseware, and some food essentials; tearful goodbye to my parents at the harbour in Cherbourg; a sixteen-hour journey on theContinue reading “The Emerald Isle, my five years anniversary!”

The Emerald Isle, its Irishness

June is already here, which means my fifth blog on the Emerald Isle is due! This series started in February as my humble homage to this amazing island which is home to me.

Full of contrasts, completely different from the North to the South, from the East to theContinue reading “The Emerald Isle, its landscapes!”

On the contrary, my 2021 posts turned out to be a bit quieter, not as I had thought it would though. As I look back, the lack ofContinue reading “Home is where the soul finds peace…”
