Do you know when you meet someone and it’s like you’ve known them for years? Well that happened today.
A lady who I’ve chatted to on Twitter is visiting Ireland so we met up and I took her on a whistle stop tour of some of my favourite places.
We started in The Holy Well and did a tour around Lough Gill including The Isle of Innisfree, Hazelwood, Glencar and Gleniff.
I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. It’s easy to chat to someone through a screen, in 120 characters, but a whole other ballgame in real life. I can be quite shy sometimes too – believe it or not!
Anyway the moment we met I felt like I’d met a long-lost friend. It was like Thelma and Louise and I don’t think I stopped talking once!
I hope she comes back again soon. I’m thinking a trip to Mayo next time. It’s great seeing Ireland through someone else’s eyes. I’m so passionate about the place and it’s fantastic to see how someone else reacts when seeing it for the first time 😁.
Thank you to the lady for her company, it was a real pleasure.
