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......
