I originally decided to start this blog so I could keep my family and friends updated about my adventures in Ireland. It has served this function and so many unexpected ones as well, and though it’s been an excellent outlet for my writing, no matter how many posts I make about Ireland, there is nothing that can ever compare to actually seeing it for yourself.
As my articles can attest, I love this country. It is the most magical, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring place that I have ever seen, so much so that not even these words can emphasize Ireland’s true wonder. There’s just no way to accurately describe the feeling you get driving through the mountainous Ben Bulben, standing atop the Hill of Tara, strolling along the River Liffey, or even downing a pint of Guinness at the local pubs. All I know for certain is that I’ll be chasing this feeling – this high – for the rest of my life.
Instead, I thought I’d try to capture Ireland’s essence through a different medium. Throughout the year, I’ve taken many videos of my adventures in order to remember as much about this place as possible. It is with these videos that I have made a compilation of some of Ireland’s greatest attributes, and is the best re-creation that I can give you to show you what it’s like to truly live here. So, as a commemoration to the best, most fulfilling year that I’ve spent on this earth, Ireland I owe you this and more.
