Ireland, Here I Come.

Tomorrow, I leave on the vacation I’ve wanted to take for years: road-tripping Ireland. And with my sister to boot.

I had grand plans to blog from the road about all the wonderful things I’ll be seeing but, really, I’ve decided it’s better to savor it for myself while I’m there instead of rushing to my computer to document it.

So wish me luck driving on the wrong side of the road, and I’ll see you in August.

PS. If you have any advice or suggestions, let me know in the comments!

  1. For all of you wondering if Jessica is happy or upset with the fact that I will be accompanying her to Ireland….
    To Boot:
    This term has nothing to do with footwear. The ‘boot’ is thought to be a derivative of the earlier ‘bat’ meaning ‘good or useful’. This is also the root of the word ‘better’.

    Forms of ‘to boot’ in Old English date from around 1000AD. Robert Manning of Brunne included a version of it in Langtoft’s Chronicle, 1330:

    “A hundreth knyghtes mo… and four hundreth to bote, squieres of gode aray.”

  2. When Barb and I were in Europe for a month we never said, “I think we walked too much today.” There were days when we logged over 10 miles on our feet. My only advise is to get out of the car as often as you can, and not just to take a picture with your phone camera on the side of the road.
