Ireland was the first place in Europe I visited, after dreaming about that continent since I was six- or seven-years-old. It only took me 17+ years to get there, but I made it!⠀And while I've been back to Europe 5 more times since, IRELAND will always equal "MAGIC" to me... ✨
As such, each year when March rolls around, I start missing the Emerald Isle's fierce, calming, ethereal beauty, wishing I could go back to reclaim and relive those first moments when my DREAM came true.
I was able to go back last year, and it was amazing to return as a more experienced traveller now, to revisit places I had seen before and travel to new locations. Still, I wish I could have bottled up that time from ten years ago.
Has a trip ever changed *YOUR* life like that?
Or are you planning your dream trip right now? (And to where?!)
