open roads, bright skies + plenty of sheepies: road tripping’ through ireland

Travel & Personal
January 11, 2017

If you know even the bare minimum about me, you know that I love to travel. [and puppies + french macarons]

Somewhere in November I woke up with a spark and texted one of my best friends ‘I have a crazy idea, are you sitting down?’ Twelve hours later our flight was booked + we were all set to venture out to the Emerald Isle.

Ireland has long been on my top five. I had heard for too long about the sprawling green country side, the scenic coastal byways, the frolicking sheep + happy cows + kind people over in the land of the a thousand welcomes.

Since we wanted to see as much a possible, we rented a car from Dublin + did our own tour around the country + the Republic of Northern Ireland. They drive on the opposite side of the road which works surprisingly alright for ones slightly dyslexic like yours truly. My friend navigated + I drove the entire island in four days [please ask about my gold star]. It was slightly intense at times, truly majestic at times + so much fun all around. Days were filled with clocking miles, eating scones, listening to tunes + Bo Burnham and perfecting our Irish + English accents. Best not to inquire about those…

I was most enchanted by the kindness of strangers wherever we were, the stillness of the morning hours spent at the Cliffs of Moher, the cherry scones at Dunnes + animals that were so happy they were actually smiling in our photos!

Here is a highlight of our journey:

Monument Valley + Ominous Skies: Utah
Utah is amazing. This was my first visit ever in the state. We picked Monument Valley since it seems off the beaten path and there were several movies filmed there- which I always geek out over. The clouds were dark with mystery, mesmerizing. The roads were pretty empt y and we had a lot of free reign around the area. The field of horses still gives me chills, having them stand in the open against the clouds and formations of red rocks was majestic. We did some climbing to find the perfect spot of the mountains without going into the park. I will have something to come back for and how wonderful! I take a lot of photos of my dog, Indian ...

Lost in Flowers + Sunshine: Adventures in Provence, France
Little secret: growing up I was a tomboy. I loved wearing T-shirts that were three sizes too big, socks pulled up mid-calf + Adidas [all day]. I would spend my time shooting hoops outside of my house, attempting to skateboard + use any opportunity I could to live up to my 'Sporty Spice' persona. Who would've thought that the same little tomboy would grow up to dream about getting lost in fields of flowers? Well, she did + she does. Flowers are lovely in their fragile + delicate nature. They are my favorite gift to give and receive. Seeing them always fills me with joy. It has been a dream of mine for many years to see lavender fields in ...
