Today marks one year since my spouse and I left for our trip to England, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland. I find trips always change me. One cannot be drenched in another culture without absorbing some intangible essence that seeps into one’s bones.
Ireland was like that. A new experience for both of us.
Although I have an Irish last name, due to an adoption somewhere in the great-great past, it may not be the family name after all. That gives me the opportunity to be from anywhere and everywhere.
And of course, I loved the museums I visited, especially to see what has been excavated from peat bogs – from gold neck collars to preserved people.
