When you hear “Greenland,” what immediately comes to mind? For me, it used to be a remote, ice-covered place that seemed slightly mysterious and even a little intimidating. Before starting to plan a trip to Greenland of my own, I assumed that it was the sort of country that was only really enjoyed by the…

Ireland is an island, and its weather patterns are largely influenced by the Atlantic Ocean.

But the less-good news is that, because of its location, the weather in Ireland can (and does!) change frequently. When it…

But, up until this summer, one major item on my Ireland bucket list remained unchecked: going on an Irish road trip. Along with…

As we slowly rounded a bend in the driveway, all three of us in the car let out a collective “Oooo” as Ballyseede Castle came into view. With rounded faux-turrerts in the front and a bright red door flanked by two Irish Wolfhounds, Ballyseede Castle definitely looked impressive. “I’ll bet it’s haunted,” my sister said…
I remember when my mom first told me about the “Outlander” books. I was in college, I think, and we shared an interest in historical-fiction-with-some-fantasy-thrown-in; I had just recommended that she read “The Historian” (still one of my favorite books), and she told me that I should read “Outlander,” about a woman who time-travels 200…
