I once visited the upper regions of Northern
Ireland when I was a young boy. My family and I were on
vacation from the Americas. I don't really know all the
names of all the places that we had seen but to this day
I can never forget what I had seen.
The mountains of rich
green grass, the places where my dad had said that
fairies had once been. I don't know if all that was true
but there was magic there. I met a young boy who was
about the same age as me at the time, his name was Ian.
told me that at night sometimes around the trees, you
can see small lights and hear voices. I was amused and
Years later, I now plan to go back to Ireland
and follow the roads that my family had done many years
now with my own children.
There are people who were
so kind and were happy to give directions to the next
stop in our journey.
Now, you read this and might say to yourself, what
is an American writing this for? I don't really
know. I just
think that you live in such a beautiful place
on this planet and you are such kind people that I
say so. I
think that soon enough, I'll be back to see your
great countryside again.
Thanks for the great
