After being back in Vancouver for two weeks, I’m off again. Hey, if you take a semester to travel, you may as well take advantage of it. I was so happy to have this opportunity to travel back to the United Kingdom and Ireland with my Grandma.
Travelling with my Grandma? I have travelled with her multiple times. The two of us were always close growing up and I have learned so much from her. Having her around when I was growing up made me appreciate my childhood. It also made me more aware of her childhood and growing up. Now, going back to where she grew up, I’m going to have a chance to learn more and record it all so that, when she’s gone, I can have an opportunity to remember her stories so that they can live on.
On to a lighter topic (I promise!!), I get to visit another country that I haven’t been to yet. I have heard so much about Ireland but I am just so excited to see it first hand and meet some new people over beer at the pub. My Grandma and I are heading on a train tour around the southern countryside and then to spend a day up in Northern Ireland, visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Giant’s Causeway.
Then off to visit family and friends in Scotland and England! If you have any insights or suggestions, I would love to hear your recommendations in the comments below.
