Sitting in the bus in middle of nowhere, surrounded by mountains, with a big rushing river to my left...I started researching the steps necessary to “go back” to where one’s from. Take me, I’m US born, but if I’m to understand the phrasing, I would have to default to Ireland, where my wonderful ancestors are from. To do that, and let me preface this with saying I’m not great at paperwork; there’s a ton of it! Geez! Paperwork, all kinds of hoops to jump through, and after that there’s still no guarantee that I’ll be able to get residence in Ireland. I honestly feel like we may have oversimplified this whole “going back” business. 😳
With that said, I do have to share with you the bittersweet news that although we are not Ireland bound, we do intend to leave California. 😢 In a month’s time, we’re headed East! 😱🚌🎉 Stay tuned!
