Ireland Roadtrip 2016

“May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon your face,and the rains fall soft upon your fields and,
until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand”

This is irish blessing to every traveller goes around Ireland. And this is precisely the sensation you can feel scampering on its roads, you would never stop the engine. Only to stand admiring beauty of this emerald land.

My experience in Ireland started as many italians abroad, but finished to change my life. This is a little synthesis of my solitary trip along irish roads and my experience in Dublin.

Every great Idea comes from a beer

It’s night, in a Dublin pub with a great friend. After some pint of irish black gold, the Answer:

«What if I leave home and rent a car for a road trip along Wild Atlantic Way?»

He looks at me, not astonished, just says: «Why not? »

So started a solitary trip, it had no documentary expectation but restored my vital mechanisms, rusted by years of studies and research of a “permanent job”. Gears that not matched more, so they had to be oiled, or even changed. So I turned on again my discover desire.

Every new turn of the engine grew up inside of me the awareness I might have drive no stop until the end of the world just to never stop. Then, back in Dublin ,have done my choice: every day would have been a “Why not?”, every experience a first time.

Tattooed same night when I reached it, “Why Not?” is my question and my answer. That one will go with me around the world, that one will make me meet folks, foods, habits, cultures and who knows what else. That one will make me sleep outdoor or in car, that one will make me climb mountains and walk under the burning sun. But also that one has given me a little experience that is priceless.
