A Day in Dun Laoghaire



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.
