Next to the Irish fjord, I saw my first faerie tree up close. It’s thought that if you leave something behind (usually bits of clothing) on a faerie tree, your wish/hope/dream will be granted as it disappears.
The last week of October was Eid al Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), for which I received 4 days off from work. Tank and I decided to make a week of it and meet his parents…somewhere. After much deliberation, the group settled on Ireland, where we spent time in Dublin and Galway (and the surrounding areas).
Rough life, I know.
**Spoiler alert**: Ireland is stunning.
Saturday morning Jon and I headed through St. James’s Park to catch the Changing of the Guard — the only time during our London stay that it was scheduled to take place.
The walk through the park was gorgeous.
