My beloved travel blog! As you can see, the propeller beanie lives on in a more adventurous form: a propeller pith helmet!

TourAbsurd was my baby for 5 years. I documented my travels around Europe, Africa, North America, and even a brief foray into Asia. I learned a tremendous amount about writing, social media, website management, online advertising, and working with sponsors. I loved being a travel blogger! I will likely return to it, but only for fun. Travel is amazing and I hightly recommend it!

Every once in a while, Ireland has a summer. You'd think it would be a rather regular occurrence, but I assure you it is not.

Summer has finally arrived! I should probably *knock wood* when I say that, but I'm still basking in the glow of a glorious, sunny Ireland.
