Molly's Journey to the West

Monthly Archives: August 2013

Hello friends, I am back home in Minnesota. I arrived 3 days ago. As I write, I am sitting in my family’s porch, enjoying the view of the lake. It’s a sunny, hot morning. I can hear the bees flying about, foraging for pollen and nectar. The birds are chirping and the red-wing-black-birds are squawking. I can also hear crickets and frogs. These are the benefits of living next to a marsh… Read More

Hello friends, I’m finally here. I’m in Ireland. This country is my family’s homeland. My heritage is from county Cork. Today I’ll be going to countryside, to see the rolling green hills.

I am lounging on the couch/bed, listening to someone play guitar outside my window. Every evening there has been a different musician who performs in a cafe below our window. Last night, the performer was a Spanish woman with a very rough voice…. Read More

Here’s my sexy pose with Prague/Prague Castle behind me. Hello friends! I made it to the Czech Republic and I have spent 3 days in Prague and 1 day in Kutna Hora. I must say (I think I say this every time) that Prague is a beautiful city, especially at dusk. All the roofs are tiled in orange and many of the buildings are still in their original form. Walking around the… Read More
