It’s four in the afternoon and I am sipping on some red wine because in my body it really is closer to 9pm. I’ve never really suffered from my travels back and forth through different time zones but this one hits differently! Haha!
We left Reunion Island last night around 9pm and made it to Cork, not without some twists and turns, this morning at 11.
The way home was long and that carbon footprint is etched in my soul, but we made it in one piece. It’s nice to be back in Cork!
(We are looking into offsetting options to make up for those very much needed trips to my family six thousand miles away. I wish things were simpler sometimes or just cleaner, I guess.)
Our holidays were amazing. Very hot but enjoyable.
We only went to one museum as most of the time was spent home with my family and down by the ocean. My mom adopted a new dog, Foxy, and he has the fluffiest of butts, we were all head over heels for him.
We got a lot of rain too so we played a lot of Uno with my brother.
However, on our way to the airport, we were oh so very lucky to get a look at the volcano’s eruption as it just started!!
We only took two pictures of this and they don’t really show much:
If you want to see more of the Piton de La Fournaise’s latest eruption, you can head over to Facebook to check the observatory’s page or just look it up on the internet for some professional pictures of this beauty!
I don’t have many stories to share with you, they all belong in my heart and mind but I have some pictures as promised, don’t worry!
I will just put them all here in a little slideshow as I don’t have much time on my hands right now. I hope you enjoy them and they maybe inspire you, some way, somehow.
It was wonderful to be with my family for so many days and to have Billy with me too.
It made me really happy to finally introduce him in the flesh to my mom brother, sister and nephew (and of course the cats!). I had never felt like my family was really whole until now and seeing all of them together was something else..
Time flew really fast but I think we did make the most we could out of it. I cannot wait to go back again or maybe fly them to Cork this time, now that I actually have more than a fiver in my pockets at the end of the month haha
It wasn’t too sad to leave for once because I was leaving home but also coming back to another place that I call home. I will miss my mom and my ocean and everything in between. But I’m okay here too, safe and happy, and that’s a wonderful feeling.
The next post I will publish after this one will be the last of this blog, guys. I’m afraid that’s why it’s been harder for me to write ”proper” posts as I am used to lately; I guess I really need the fresh environment to start expressing myself again.
Don’t worry though, I will explain where else to find me in that post when the time comes so you can still read my stories and about my life and art if you want to.
As always, thanks for your time ❤
