25 Days of Christmas Ornaments, day 22

So…traveling.

Before Covid – when we could actually go to another country – my husband, daughter, and I traveled several times to England and Ireland ( my two favorite travel places on earth!) The first time was when my daughter was 8. We took my sister-in-law Kathleen with us because she’s a great traveler, and a good navigator in the car.

I am not.

My husband used her for a co-pilot the entire time we drove around the Ring of Kerry while I sat in the back with my 8 year old. It was a great trip.

The second time was when my daughter was deciding where she wanted to go to college during her sophomore high school year. She applied to Oxford and wanted to study literature there. We combined that trip with one to Ireland again.

Yet another trip was when my daughter did a summer semester at one of the Oxford colleges- I forget which.

The last time we visited the British and Emerald Isles was when she was a sophomore at Dartmouth because she was doing a semester abroad in Dublin. That trip sparked the following ornament that she brought back to the US as a present for me.

I have a few England ones as well, but this one is so pretty I wanted to spotlight it today.

More tomorrow, peeps. We’re almost done. Promise. LOL
