Travel || Ireland + England / by Madeline Harper

We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. 
-e.e. cummings

This January I had the chance to explore Ireland and England with my best friend Margaret, who is away at university in Manchester. This trip was one of the most rejuvenating, sight filled, fast paced two weeks I've had! I adored getting to see the bustling cities, gorgeous countrysides, and warm people these countries had to offer. I couldn't get enough of the local music in the traditional Irish pubs in Dublin nor the exquisite art in the Victoria Albert Museum in London. From the Blarney Castle to the Cliffs of Moher to traditional tea in the quaint city of Chester, it passed in a blur of history, culture, and pints of Guinness! This trip was overflowing with friendship and beauty. Here are just a few film snapshots from the adventure of a lifetime!
