Hello fellow Globetrotters!
On my last day in Ireland I got up at 5am to go see the sunrise, when I had woken up I thought it was raining but it was just the wind through the trees outside the window.
Outside it was really silent and I loved the feeling of being the only one up.
It was quite cloudy and so you could only half see the sunrise.
I had set down in the grass to enjoy the view and thought I was completely alone.
Until I heard a loud munching sound behind me and when I turned only a couple of feet away a horse was looking at me. When I slowly got up and offered my hand, the horse glady accepted my stroking. The horse even nudged me a few times and put her head on mine.
To me that was a really magical moment, I had never really been that close to a horse before. And to add to that, all the days before I had only seen the horses from a distance and they all seemed really shy. Slowly I noticed that even the other horses got close to me, but they wouldn’t get as close as letting me touch them.
But the one horse stayed by my side for most of the time and I even took a few adorable selfies (my first selfies ever!). Has something like this ever happened to you?
When I got back the others were already up and we had one last breakfast together and then it was time to set goodbye. It felt a lot like I had been there longer than only a week.
Looking back at the two weeks, they were filled with unforgettable moments.
It was my first time travelling on my own and I will always remember it.
I got to met some amazing people along the way and am really glad to everyone who made my journey what it was.
It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows and I can recall on a few moments that I didn’t like, but nothing is perfect. I just choose to remember (mostly) the good moments.
And I am really looking forward to my next WWOOFing at the end of the year, in Ireland for about two months!
See you soon at our next destination!
