Today I swam in the Irish Sea.
It’s a bit hard to explain how I felt; it was like everything was open and clean and I could breathe easily. It was also very cold.
I was surrounded by children and friends and older adults and other foreign travelers. Everyone laughed and shivered and stayed in as long as they could.
I think travel is a way of changing our environment so we can become more familiar with ourselves; I think Ireland is my way of remembering I have choices outside of the ones I see directly in front of me. Look a little left. Look a little right. The opportunities are neverending.
