Read the First 10 Pages of this book

Exploring the West of Ireland is a time for meditation, spiritual reflection and strengthening the bonds of life.

More practically the ability to read a map might have proved helpful. The tourist office in Ireland has all their paths clearly marked. You can’t go wrong if you follow that little yellow man.

Or can you?

As British ex-patriate Kerry Dwyer leads her trusting French husband Bertrand astray once more, they reminisce and reflect upon accents and accidents, family and friends, love and what it means to be alive.

Bertrand doesn’t mind getting lost – he loves Kerry all the more for going off the beaten track.

Her book “Ramblings in Ireland” is not a book about rambling in Ireland. It’s the tale of one particular walking trip, and the memories and musings it inspired.

The Indie Author Life

Kerry Dwyer was born in England but has lived in France for years. On her website Kerry writes that the trip to Ireland was a chance for Bertrand to discover for himself the joys of another culture…

There is a lovely French expression “il ne perd pas le nord.” Literally this means “he doesn’t lose the north.” It means someone who knows exactly what they want and where they are going. They are focused on their target and don’t lose track of it.

That doesn’t describe me at all.

I can’t read maps. They always seem to be printed the wrong way up. I can turn them the right way but then the names of places are sideways or upside down. I never know which way is north. Bertrand does, and he knows how to read a compass. Makes you wonder why he trusts me to navigate. Maybe he likes getting lost.
