I am a British ex pat living in France. I work full-time as a language coach. I mainly work with business men and women who find that they need to speak English to their overseas contacts, but also people who just want to improve their linguistic skills.
I am married to a French man. I have a daughter who is in Lycée. She is bilingual. My efforts at French and my husband’s at English always move her to laughter. We have no problem understanding each other. Conversations are generally held in French apart from when I speak to our daughter alone. My parents live in France, quite near me. The rest of my family live in various parts of Europe. I write as I speak. I have been told that I tend to ramble on a bit. Some of my friends and family suggested that I publish my ramblings as they found them amusing, informative or interesting. I hope you do too.

This is not a book about rambling in Ireland.
It tells the tale of one particular walking trip and the memories and musings it inspired.
Exploring the West of Ireland is a time for meditation, spiritual reflection and strengthening the bonds of life. More practically the ability to read a map might have proved helpful.
