My first travel blog entry ~ inspired by Timehop!
A year ago today, my son, Dillon, had breakfast in Ireland, and my son, Hayden, and I had breakfast in New England (Maine). The Irish breakfast is on the left.
I love Ireland but their breakfasts leave a lot to be desired. The sausage is like a bland meat pudding in a casing and that black thing next to the egg that they call pudding is some sort of pastry made with blood. Yes, blood. I suppose it’s really good for you. The breakfast is usually served with copious amounts of toasted white bread. It’s also usually served with beans and tomatoes! That sausage though… I’m quite sure the breakfasts are why my ancestors left Ireland!
I really love Ireland, but when we road-tripped the U.K. as a family, we really preferred the wonderful markets packed with fabulous organic fruits that we stocked up on for breakfasts and snacks in the car! The berries in the U.K. are the best!
I highly recommend buying fresh organic produce when you travel anywhere, especially the U.K.! It will save you money, plus it’s much more nutritious than restaurant food – and it saves time – you can eat between destinations! You can see more in a day that way!
The food in New England, on the other hand, is fabulous and wonderful – everywhere you go! If you’re a foodie, New England should be a destination goal! Plus it’s gorgeous and awesome! Go in the fall! Ireland is gorgeous in June, great weather in June!
I want to go back to both places everyday of my life!
