I've been to Ireland before but this is the first time I am traveling with a National Geographic photographer, Catherine Karnow. I have learned in one short week how to see the world in a completely different way, as we've explored Dublin together.
We are both so passionate about our work - and finding the best possible authentic places and experiences here. We ARE tourists but we jump right in and are intent on finding the soul of a city, meeting people, making new friends, and hopefully connecting with people in our social networks and online worlds who have been or who want to go.
Tomorrow, I am headed to the west coast of Ireland for some time at Ashford Castle, Galway and Clifden - all places I've been before and absolutely love.
Who wants to sign up for Catherine's Italy workshop with me?!
