Hi, I’m new to the blogging world.. An Irish granny with a beautiful 20 month old Grandson called Harry, writing my first blog. The mind boggles….how and why? Well, it all started with Harry barging into the world just before my 50th Birthday. This little bundle of love turned my world upside down with joy. Harry brought with him a very special gift for his new Granny. The greatest gift of all…PERSPECTIVE! This wonderful new perspective has resulted in me making the decision to take time out from my full-time job of 32 years to travel the world for the next two years, with a back pack and a pair of boots. Persuading my soulmate and husband to join me! To be free as birds, to spend time with our grandson in Chicago, to hopefully do some volunteer work and to basically put a pin in the map of the world and spread our wings and fly! And all because Granny knows best 😉 I plan to blog all about our adventures of surviving on the contents of a rucksack, in budget accommodation all over the world as middle aged old foogies. I would absolutely love ye all to join me in our travels where i’ll be sharing the highs and lows of our journey. First steps ..to get planning. So far, we’ve earmarked Iceland, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Seattle and the west coast USA and on to Asia. So lets have fun and join in with Irishgrannyontherun.
