I have to say overall I don’t travel well…or smart. I’m definitely not one of those people that seem to stay mysteriously fresh looking throughout their travel experience. I really envy those who dress smart and look perky and seem to know where their gate is via some internal GPS system. I, on there hand, look like a train wreck, feel half dead, normally lost, drink way too much caffeine followed by beer, wine, champagne, followed by way more caffeine while I manage to food crawl through hours of layover. I need to learn how to spend down time more productively no doubt.
On the brighter side, the 12 weeks at Ballymaloe Cooking School has ended and some students have found employment! Well done for them. Others have accumulated some valuable culinary knowledge that they will impart in one form or another throughout their lives. I’m looking forward to seeing how much information from this experience will stay in my noodle and for how long. The most enjoyable part of my time abroad was meeting so many fantastic people and working with them (and playing with them) in a very unique and intense environment. I’ve made some new friends and that in itself was worth the journey. Please stay in touch and look for posts from the green isle and other places in the near future. Cheers!
