Seeing the Other Side of the World

I've been living here in Ireland for nearly five years now. I never thought I will be given a chance to the other side of the world. When I decided to come with my husband here, I carried a special joy in my heart because I know my life will change according to God's will. 




It's not easy to be away with your family and friends. But moving here means a better life for us and to people we care for. It also opens the door of travelling for me and my husband.

We are constantly travelling around Ireland to see it's beauty and charm. We haven't seen most of the counties but we're taking one place at a time. So far, we are having a great time and we are enjoying every corner of emerald isle. 


We were also blessed to see other countries. That, for me, is dream a come true. 

When we travel we plan ahead. We see what itinerary will best fit the day. We search for best place to stay in different hotel booking sites and from this website here. I also carry with me a journal that bears our checklist and other plans for the said trip. 

This coming Christmas Holiday, we are planning a short trip to England. If God permits we'll be spending the season with our families there.

How about you? Where are you planning to spend your Christmas Holiday?

  1. We haven’t decided on what we're doing yet! Being away from the ones you love is hard, so I hope you make it to England for the holidays.

  7. I am glad that your are happy and contented with your life, but you are right no matter what we can't be perfect, there is always something missing. However, it is God's will I am sure He has plans for you.

  16. I can already imagine the exciting holiday season awaiting you sis in England! I shall surely look forward to the photos you will share! ;-)

    As for me, I have initially planned of spending the holiday season with a long-time-not-seen cousin who lives in Ohio, three states away from where I live right now. But It has been a cloudy plan now that my schooling schedule is not in its right timeframe. Maybe we'll just stay home and savor our togetherness because it looks like our 2014 is one exciting and busy year for us! :D

  19. I assumed that you've been and seen those wonderful places in Ireland, I've seen so many online..

  20. When you call the place, Ireland, as emerald isle, does it mean that it is as precious as the gem? Why you said so? I don't find anything so precious in your write-up here. You know I am very poor in world geography, world history so to speak.

  21. Sir Gil, Ireland is such a beautiful country with amazing green pastures that sparkle like emerald gems. You can find proofs in my other posts featuring charms of Ireland.

  22. My husband and I wish we could travel to Europe someday. Wish we could also visit Ireland or New Zealand someday. I love traveling so does he and now our kids. I can understand about missing our family because I terribly miss them too, but since I decided to move to a new country, I am committed. It is also nice to be able to live in a new culture though. There are so many things to learn and explore.

  23. I can totally understand how you feel. Like you, I left my country to be with my husband here in the United States. I don't have my immediate family here and it's hard.

  31. i agree, you must always have a prepared itinerary before going to a place... saves you time thinking where to go... and a guide will be a great help. Yahweh bless.
