Like a weaving, each of us ( we were 8. ), held a thread or two to ebb and flow through the fibres mindfully selected for us by Gisele, who continued to sensitively make adjustments as the design of our integrated journey took form. As breath, our time together fully engaged the "in" and the " out", of self and Ireland, the magic and the mystery of joy and sorrow, the enchantment of the elementals and the fairies. We daily came and went from our safe and 'delicious' haven in Ballyvaughan to feast on the spring awakening of the Burren, the surge of the surf at the Cliffs and the tranquility of the moment. Saying "yes" to an adventure across the ocean with a woman I only just met, was for me, an exercise in trust and letting go. I can only, state, with gratitude, it was a gift. Thank you, to Giselle and all the other amazing personalities and landscapes she helped weave together:)
