A cloudy day calls for some introspection

A cloudy day calls for some introspection

I'm an optimist by design.

I always think about the great things that will happen if I make a change. This intentionally-designed mindset helps me dive in, head first, and start new adventures, like, say, moving to another country.

"Ireland? OMG, it's going to be so amazing! The country is absolutely beautiful!"  

Yes, it is. A beautiful country with beautiful people. 

Yes, it is. A beautiful country with beautiful people. 

When I was packing my bags, I was thinking that every weekend is going to be like this: hiking on a new trail, discovering new places, and meeting new people. 

But there's something that no traveling blog is ever going to tell you about Irish hiking trails: you'd better get your boots ready, 'cause it's going to get muddy. 

And that's a great analogy for moving to Ireland. It's "muddy".  

Finding a place to stay is a messy business. It's expensive and the living conditions could be improved. 

So, for a good couple of months, this was everything that I was able to see and do: find a place, figure out the paper work, manage finances -- all mud, no beautiful trails. 

But now things have started to settle down and, for the first time in a while, I got to do what I came here to do, and that is enjoying life

Once I got passed the rough begging, I got to see the beauty of it all.

Both the landscapes and the people.

I got to explore The Bog of Frogs -- a beautiful, easy trail that's just a short 30 minutes drive from Dublin city center. 

And realized that the seafood chowder I ate in Howth is my new favorite thing in the world. 

The Brass Monkey, I'll see you again soon.
