Wonderful West Cork

My trip began in Ireland, in West Cork (it’s… west of Cork City haha) in a town called Union Hall. It’s remote and very rural here: there are cows in the backyard and fishing boats on the pier down the road.

There’s one shop, a little cafe, and a fish shop and three pubs, and about 160 full-time residents. Union Hall is nestled in the hills and flanked by the Atlantic Ocean.

So why did I start in such a remote place? My brother and his fiancée and two kids live here! It’s been wonderful to visit them and catch butterflies with my 5 year old nephew, and meet my 4 week old niece for the first time.

Those backyard cows.

In a year-long solo journey, it’s been wonderful to start with my family around me.
