玩的很开心

So a good friend ,  a very good friend, is departing our home country, the Emerald Isle, the home of  the Shamrock Shake and all of our country’s great things….Like am…You Know…Let’s just move on.

And of course my friend doesn’t take small steps, she takes gigantic leaps,  it’s China she’s leaving us for!

“Are ya mad Michelle?”  is what I’ll say when I meet her before she takes flight; closely followed by:

“Do we here, your friends, in Ireland, mean anything to you!”

And maybe finish with a : “ Oh so you’re TOO GOOD for Ireland, oh you’re  gone above your station!”

But of course, after some time, I shall say fair frigging play to Michelle! Going working  in a far away country,   a different culture,  is an adventure and a step outside the comfort zone.

See I personally would never be brave enough to take such a step – I’m a home bird without wings or one that can’t fly …I’m an Ostrich.

Yet if asked I would recommend exploring different societies, because there’s so much to see and so little time, plus there is a painted path for a person’s life in Irish society so I admire the increasing number of people which are today taking different paths.

While the thought of traveling to China – a country way, way over there  or should I  simply say far away, is somewhat scary to me, but, I am sure it would be exhilarating, an adrenaline rush and maybe something that I should have the balls to do!

Our planet is remarkable and there are so many  thrilling things to see, places  to explore and enjoy – the good, the bad, and mad!

And, I don’t mean common tourist holidays but like my friend, my brave friend Michelle,  going and staying in a new environment, the other side of  the world, and coming part of another society.

So anyways, I must go make some tea and so I’ll finish by saying once more fair play to my friend and to anyone exploring the world, making new homes and new friends {Remember Us}

Bring us back some good stories Michelle 🙂

P.S. And you made good tae too, especially when I was a little grumpy!
