Good morning from Kildare, Ireland!
Oh what a week it has been! It didn’t go quite as I had planned but everything worked out in the end. We found out recently that our accountant passed away and our taxes were in limbo. We had to drive to Seattle to get our paperwork and bring it back to Spokane.
A completely unplanned quick trip to Seattle on Wednesday and Thursday was definitely not in our goals but that is life.
The rest of the week was spent getting caught up on life and preparing for Ireland!!!
Friday morning I hopped an Aer Lingus flight from Chicago to Dublin and arrived early Saturday morning. Super tired but so excited. Y’all I am staying in a castle that was built in 1180’s! It is hard to even wrap my brain around it.
I arrived to the property at 6am and quickly went to bed. It was a bit surreal to wake up and look out the window at castle turrets. Definitely not something that I have experienced in my life before. Total bucket list life moment that is for sure.
THEN…oh my goodness I almost lost my mind when they brought falcons and owls for us to interact with.
There was an interesting moment when the falconer told me to not let the falcon near me because his wings could poke my eyes out. Oh and the talons could crush my hands…oh the warnings.
While I am here I am missing some cat love but I grabbed a ton of pics before I left.
oh goodness I can’t handle the cuteness!!!
I am loving this weeks mantra tattoo! I truly feel like good things are going to happen!
This next week will be spent in Killarney, Ireland for the TBEX Europe Travel Writing Conference. We will be diving into what is happening in the travel world.
Keep an eye out for a ton of Instagram stories and Twitter updates this week! Plus hopefully a lot more castle time which makes me super happy!
