One of the Great Places to Visit!

Invariably a friend or family member will ask "What was your favorite place to visit?" I have to answer, hands down - Ireland.
The alps are awesome, the pyramids were powerful and Paris is perfect, but.........Ireland. Just the name rolls off the tongue nicely.
My great-great grandfather, Thomas Kidd immigrated to Canada from Ireland during the potato famine. Regretfully, I don't know from what county he immigrated. Maybe someone out there in VT-land knows about Irish immigrants to the London, Ontario area during the 1850's.
When we got home from our Ireland trip, we were asked "was it green?" and I must say, " it's as green as Georgia!"

    Loved your photos and comments. This is so much better than the stack of guidebooks I've purchased!

    These are wonderful pictures in both film and words of the country areas of Ireland. It is a magical place and seems to move at a totally different pace from that of a city. And the green is something you don't believe until you see it.

    I agree about what you said about Ireland. There is no place like it...and you can't explain it to someone unless they experience it themselves. No words can express what Ireland is all about.
