Heartwarming

Imagine… just a tiny pin prick in the big Atlantic. Although surrounded by some other patches of land, as a matter of fact it is, as the others are as well, on its’ self, lying there, completely isolated from the rest of the world…

Of course there is public transport such as the ferry which can bring and get you twice a day, or even more times a day during  season. There is also the little plane from Connemara Airport which has a regular service. However for both kinds of transport it means of course they only can run weather permitting. But still…

For some people it may have been a long time already of living the dream of once going before one really hits the road. For others it just happens by accident that one arrives; there has not been a single thought or any preparation at all beforehand.  Any way before one actually starts the very last bit of their adventuring coming, some threshold has to be taken. And even then your plans can be cancelled unexpectedly due to weather…

Finally there is the moment the ferry or plane is about to leave. A moment of excitement I suppose for everybody, no matter whether you are young or a bit older. Going off, leaving behind of what burdens you. It relieves you. Now you feel free eager to meet new worlds.

People coming from everywhere in the world. From the Far East and the Far West. From the Scandinavian countries as well as from Down Under.

Here  we meet on Inis Meáin, this tiny little pearl in the big Atlantic. Heartwarming…

Slán go fóill,

Elisabeth from Inis Meáin.
