I am ok to drive cars that’s over 160K miles, live in a home that we’ve purchased 19 years ago as newly wed and now paid for. I’d rather travel, take my family of 5 on an adventure, experience the coolest castle, eat the weirdest food, because money will return, but time and the age of what they are at won’t.
Aerial view of #inismor with #dunaonghasa in the back ground. Inis Mór is the largest of the three Aran Islands which lie across the mouth of Galway bay. The Island has been occupied for at least 6,000 years and possesses one of the highest concentrations of National Monuments in Ireland. Booking your tour with #aranislandsbiketours gets you to many of the wonderful sites around the island, we provide ferry tickets, bike, tour guide, packed lunch and a delicious pint of guinness after your bike tour. #aran#aranislands#biketour#doolin#inismor#inismaan#inisoirr
Next up we went in search of the wormhole (a natural rectangular pool at the foot of the cliffs where they hold the Red Bull cliff diving competition). Very off the beaten track and it took some creativity, faith and luck but we did eventually find it! #slainteluebkes#inishmore#aranislands#dunaonghasa#thewormhole
Day 8: Inishmore (the largest of the Aran Islands). Took the ferry from Rossaveal in the morning for a day trip. First stop was the bike rental where we decided to go big and rent a tandem bike. Took a little time to find our balance & rhythm and we sprung a flat on the far side of the island but once we got a replacement bike it was a smooth and fun ride! #slainteluebkes#aranislands#inishmore#bicyclebuiltfortwo#tandembike

Yesterday I introduced you to a few characters, but today I’d like to tell you a bit about the setting of my novel, “A Different Familiar.” ⠀
(Reminder, in case you missed it: the e-book version of my novel will be FREE starting on 10/26, but only for a limited time!)⠀
“A Different Familiar” is set in contemporary Ireland. While most of the novel takes place in Galway City, Co. Galway, a few other locations are critical to the story as well. Ballintubber and Castlebar, Co. Mayo and Kinvara, Co. Galway are home to two major characters, while the Galwegian island of Inishmore becomes, at times, both a hindrance and a haven to different characters.⠀
Not familiar with these places? Not to worry! Check out the corresponding boards on my Pinterest for images, articles, and information about each individual location: https://buff.ly/2CZbbEY⠀
Did you go where you wanted to go?
Learn about what you wanted to know?
Did you ever really give something back
Instead of always taking it?
Did you inspire the ones that you knew?
Make a difference to those who knew you?
Did you finally figure out what it is
That makes us who we are today
Don't waste another day
(You never know when you'll get one)
From flowers, I learn that you are stronger than the environment you grow in. You can grow even when there isn’t someone there to nurture you, you can bloom and be beautiful in the place you were placed.
