Ireland – To many from Maine, a place that feels like home.

on Feb. 27, 2017, at 7:32 p.m.
On nearly our last full day in Ireland, we decided to try to visit three treasures. In the morning, we drove to the Cliffs of Moher and braved the sudden and seemingly endless winds that blew ashore from the North Atlantic. The weren’t more than 50 cars in the parking lot, a very small number for one of the most popular tourist attractions in this part of Ireland, and because of the weather, we decided to try to park closer to the visitor center.

Ireland – like Maine, a land of writers, artists and poets

Today was rainy, cold and often too windy for any outdoor activities, but as teachers and hardy travelers, we found some interesting and amazing sights only minutes from where we are staying in Adare. Best of all, in my mind, the place we planned to see was directly connected to writing and history.

on Feb. 22, 2017, at 3:34 a.m.
When we tell people we meet that we are from Maine, in the United States, they often look at us and within seconds say, “that’s cold.” They’re right of course, but Ireland also seems to be a land that understands the benefits of layering and a good dose of wool, not to mention a solid pair of walking shoes or boots.

Ireland – a land filled with connections to Maine

on Feb. 20, 2017, at 5:51 p.m.
Welcome to the land of perpetual green fields, misty conditions, and driving on the ‘other’ side of the road. Like many people, my wife and I traveled with two close friends from Boston to Dublin (via Heathrow) to spend a week away from the stress and confusion that often fills our daily lives. For the next six days, as we wander through the countryside, we’ll try to find a connection every day to snowy and cold shores we just left. Here’s day one.

School Vacation – A week of chasing stories, ghosts, and a land not forgotten

on Feb. 18, 2017, at 9:16 a.m.
For the next seven days, my wife and I are going to travel through the countryside of Ireland and try to recharge the batteries. For my students who might be reading this, yes, that’s considered a euphemism for the infirmities of passing well into the fifth decade of life.
