Location: Monaghan??, Ireland

MapDear all
My fisrst impressions of Ireland. WOW! lets just start with the fact that I'm in Ireland!!! This in itself seems so surreal. I've met some wonderful people who've been as warm and inviting as anyone in the land of Oz, except for one minor problem, that i've been so tired that i haven't really been concentrating and therefore haven't been able to understand a word that has been said at times.

Ireland is a wet country. It#s been raining and well grey since we arrived really. Although yesterday I think I saw the sun for a moment, but apparantley I'm told that this moment was very brief and to savour it while it lasts.

That being said Ireland is a beautiful country that is very green, which is a little symbolic of the nation's optimism and new growth of the country. It seems that the 'Aussie Battler' mentality is alive and well in Ireland also. The nation has such history and this has at times awed me. The character and depth of Ireland is simply amazing and like nothing i had or could have ever imagined.

Having a blast
Love to all
