Hello, hello ní fhaca mé le fada thú – that’s Irish for long time, no see! After one of the longest travel days in recent memory I am finally back in New York City and thus, the fun Snapchats have come to an end but boy do I have stories and photos for you!
On my first day in Ireland I took a walking tour and at one point the tour guide said I what I thought was, “yeah, at it was really good crack”. I looked at him a bit sideways and made a point to ask 20 minutes later what he meant. It turns out he had said craic, not crack, though they are pronounced the same, and in Irish it means fun. I thought he was just pulling my leg but for the next eight days I heard dozens of locals use the term and realized it was a real thing. So yes, Ireland was great craic, or great fun! I checked in last week and shared photos from my first few days in Dublin so here are a few more from the rest of my journeys, again, all of which will be getting their own posts coming soon with the first one this Friday!
