This is one of those "I suck as a celtophile" moments. I've never been to Emain Macha - one of two central locations in the Tain bo Cualnge cycle, the home of Cuchulain (oh yeah and Conchobar mac Nessa himself).. I. Suck. But I am well aware of how much I need to go at some point.

    Yes, that's true. I got really mad at my camera(a 35mm, old school). Now, every time I see a picture of Eilean Donan, or Loch Ness, I say to myself: "I was there, but have no pictures, argh." Still, I have a lovely, hand-made , hand woven sweater(a lovely deep blue) I bought in Skye, and fell in love with Edradour Whiskey--made in the smallest distillery in Scotland--which tastes wonderful. When I can, I'm buying another bottle. Plus, I have some great memories. Traveling alone is interesting. Next time(if there is a next time), I'll base myself in one area and explore the heck out of that area! Peace!

    Not getting over sucks, but is more of a "the universe is annoying" sucking, rather than an "I suck" situation.. :D

Tens of centuries ago, amid Irelands iconic green, rolling landscape, the kings of Ireland were anointed on a hill of tremendous importance—a place where spirituality met with royalty, and mythical traditions began. The Hill of Tara, one of the most revered spiritual sites in Ireland, is a place where druids held festivals, priestesses were trained and shaman’s rites were performed. Dating back to about 4000 B.C., Tara’s importance to the Irish has withstood the test ...
