This edition focuses on vacations whether you've travelled to the emerald isle or just dream of the special day when you can. I'm honored that Lisa has asked me to host this edition. I hope that I do the Carnival justice. Thank you Lisa for this privilege.
So, let us start our trip to Ireland.....
Our first obstacle for travelling to Ireland is how we all must get there. Bill West describes his fears and dreams over at his blog, West in New England. I truly hope you overcome your fears and see the many shades of green Bill.
Once you conquer your travelling fears, you can enjoy your trip just as Donna Moughty discovered recently. Follow her adventure researching genealogy, visiting cousins and taking beautiful photos over at Donna's Genealogy Blog. There are several entries. I chose to link her whole blog and not just one specific journey. Incredible shots and information Donna!
The Beara Peninsula is calling to Janet Iles from Ireland's distant shores. See why Janet would like to visit this area which also includes a great link in her post at Janet the Researcher. Thank you for taking the challenge Janet and I hope you get to Co. Cork soon.
Susi Pentico has written a lovely little poem over at Susi's Chatty Performances on Genealogy. Definitely worth a lyrical read.
Over at Little Bytes of Life, Elizabeth shares how she's teased by her hubby and dreams of a big green airplane. Is wool really necessary? Yes, according to Elizabeth it is and she wants the whole package.
Although I've been to Ireland several times, I do have a very special dream vacation posted at CMJ Office. I sure hope dreams do come true.
Well, all good things must come to an end and so must our vacations and dreams of vacations. I hope everyone enjoyed reading.
Next up: Lisa will be posting the 15th Edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture at the Small-Leaved Shamrock on September 2nd. The theme for this next edition is 'The 2nd Annual Small-Leaved Shamrock Summer Reading Challenge'. Send your posts in by August 30th to Lisa. See you there.
