I have been home from Korea for 3 weeks now and have not even looked at this blog. No posts, no comments, no photos. It has been a weird transition getting used to life back in Ireland, catching up with friends and family and enjoying all my favorite Irish foods again.
Sometimes I miss Korea, the friends I made there and how accessible everything was. Living on a farm in Ireland is a totally different life to living in an apartment complex in a Korean city. I miss being able to go out for dinner any night of the week, My friends being within walking distance and the fact that fun things always seemed to be going on.
That said, it’s GREAT to be home. Spending loads of time with my parents, my close school friends, newly made couchsurfing friends and catching up with all my buddies in Dublin. Although the weather isn’t great it sure as hell isn’t as bad as all the miserable,never ending combination of humidity and torrential rain in Korea.
I have been on lots of little road-trips and discovered how beautiful Ireland is. We sometimes take our own country for granted and forget how many amazing things there are to do and see right on our own doorstep. A few days in Kerry, west Cork, Dublin and other spots in between and I have realized why people always say how GREEN Ireland is.
Touring the Dingle Peninsula in Kerry made me come to the conclusion that in Ireland the grass really IS greener than anywhere else in the world. The people are friendlier, delicious food, lively pubs, beautiful scenery and the weather is…well it aint THAT bad. I’m happy to be home anyway.
