The Emerald North

I didn’t expect to be braving below 10C temperatures on this trip. After all, I purposely chose to migrate north to escape the Sydney ‘winter’. Seems I went a little too far north. To a land that calls a 15C day summer. This is why you visit friends who will take pity on a cold Australian and let you borrow their warmest winter coat, and beanie, in summer. But Northern Ireland is worth braving the cold for. And the fair emerald isle did show off with consecutive days of sunshine.
