Here we go again! Well we have a few months yet before we actually leave, but I can already imagine myself taking in huge breaths of that fresh air. It smells different there. Earthy. Mossy. Salty. Ancient. I'm always energized the moment I step out of the airport and breathe it in. I wish I could bottle it and bring it back to Chicago with me (yet I'm always ecstatic after a month of travelling to get back to the best city in the world). We'll be all over the island again, but a good chunk of time will be spent in Co. Kerry. I haven't been down that way in 10 years, so I'm super excited about that. Now I just need to practice my digital photo skills so I can come home with some nice shots for the aul shop . Would be nice to recover some of what I'll lose in the feckin currency exchange...the only drawback!
