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.  The Kerry Way walking trail and The EuroVelo #1 cycle route both go right in front of my house! 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!


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......
