An Irish Téa Time Treat today!
Hi Whitney, and welcome!
I've got one question and one question only ... Did it really happen or is it all a load of blarney?
I’d love to say yes, but the truth is both What Happens in Ireland and Deceive Me in Ireland were written before I set foot in Dublin. Unfortunately. *sigh* I’d love to say I know the O’Reilly brothers and that I have danced with them both. But alas, the truth is the truth hehe.
I travelled to Ireland on the 21st January, 2013, and on the 3rd February, I was in Belfast City. One year ago, I stood outside Global Village Hostel unaware that the next morning I’d be standing out the front once again, snowflakes melting in my hands and soaking my socks to chill my toes.
Ireland is a beautiful and surprising country. And the people are among the friendliest in the world. Now, anyone who had read What Happens in Ireland or one of my past blog posts, might be aware of my belief in the Irish Charm. In the past I’ve tried to put my finger on what it is exactly that makes my Irishmen so damn handsome. The Irish Charm is deadly. But, not restricted to the men of Ireland. The Irish Charm is everywhere. Now you can shrug off what I say like my heroine Cara Barrow does when her cousin warns her, or you can prepare yourself. When you go to Ireland, you will fall in love. You will fall in love with its rolling green hills, it’s morning showers, its bright and loud pubs, its people and its culture. Just as I did.
And if you don’t think you can visit it in person? Well, as Charlaine Harris states, books are the cheapest vacation you can ever buy. So let me take you to Ireland!
Looks like I'm heading off to Ireland! I'm sure I won't be the only one taking you up on your offer!
Thanks for visiting!!
