The Journey Begins (Almost)

It’s been an exciting few weeks.

I turned 25. I experienced my last first day of school. I ran 18 miles. I packed (almost) for my semester abroad. I started a blog. Welcome!

While I have sometimes posted rather long, sentimental posts on Facebook, I would prefer to keep my rambling about Ireland on that platform to a minimum. Yes, there will be pictures (probably too many), but I decided that a blog might be a better place to discuss my adventures in Ireland. It has the added benefit of encouraging me to write fairly often, which is a habit I wish to cultivate.

Most of the posts will be about my adventures. However, I can’t promise that I might not get off topic now and then. I’ll be spending time wandering around some significant Christian heritage sites and (as most of you know) I have a tendency to go a little…a lot…theological. If that’s not your thing, don’t worry, I’ll return to my regularly scheduled programming in the next post.

Anyways, this post was written really just to say hello! I’ll be posting later this week about more of my preparations, which is proving to be an adventure in-and-of itself.



P.S. The current picture on the main page is of Ireland, but I didn’t take it. I’m currently sipping tea and watching the rain fall in my college town. My brother and sister-in-law just got back from honeymooning there. They have assured me that I am going to love the country.

P.P.S. For the most part, I will be posting post-adventure. Since this is a public blog, I just feel safer doing that.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet. – JRR Tolkien
