That’s right people, Linda K came back to Ireland, for the third time! (She must be missing her favorite child a wee bit.) This time around, we went to a few places in Belfast that we haven’t been together yet including St. George’s market, the Peace Walls, and the Crumlin Gaol which was an awesome tour. She also got to see 2 of my games (one college and one club) which was really nice. We had some great weather, so we went back to the Giant’s Causeway, Dark Hedges, and Rope Bridge, which she actually got to walk across this time! Overall it was another great trip for her- she is basically a local now.
Although I honestly have loved my time in Northern Ireland, being away from home can be really hard some days, and it’s tough to not be around my family for such a long time. There is nothing quite like getting a hug from my mom, having her here to talk to over a cup of tea, or explore new places with her. These visits give me the boost I need to keep on trucking until June, when I will be headed back home to the states. Until then, I’ll be living it up in Ireland. Cheers!
