Slainte!
 

No matter how often I tell people I'm Irish -- sometimes waving my Irish passport at them -- I'm always going to be: a blow in.  I'm Susan Baughman. I grew up a Yankee and only became Irish when I acquired Irish citizenship based on my maternal grandparents being born here in the 1890's.  Yet Irish blood has coursed through my veins since birth! So like it or not -- I AM IRISH!

 

I live in Waterville, on the world-famous Ring of Kerry.  I love wandering, exploring, learning --  on foot, bicycle or car..... Join me as I travel the length and breadth of Ireland, eating, drinking and having fun!

 

The insanity of this terrible world wide pandemic has put a wrench in all our plans for 2020. Me? I was going to open a photography gallery, and continue my photo and walking tours.  That's looking unlikely, I'm sad to say..... but is there a better place to isolate than a small village on the sea? 

 

Whether it's a dog joining me on a walk, or a stranger picking me up as I hitchhike around, or a family welcoming me in for "coffee" and serving up coffee, salmon, cheese, eggs, bacon, cake, wine - - join me as I share what I see, hear and learn in this beautiful country!

 

I hope you'll enjoy what I discover, and in just a matter of time you'll be standing here in Ireland, sending a postcard home to your friends, that starts with the line: 

Today, in Ireland......
