GTGL Snippets: Family Trip to The National Cherry Blossom Festival, Washington, D.C.

Second time's a charm! 

Our first attempt to witness the cherry blossom trees was a fail. We seized the opportunity to take the trip to Washington, D.C. during the kids' spring break in 2013 (almost two years after moving to the northeastern part of the country, but that's another story). The National Cherry Blossom Festival was scheduled on March 20th through April 14th of that year, and the National Park Service predicted that the trees will have their "peak blossom" on the festival's second week.

GTGL Snippets: County Clare, Ireland

Well hey, it’s St. Patrick’s day anyway. I found this photo that my dad took of me, caught in the act. A lot of things come to mind when I see this picture. I remember how we took a bus from the east coast of Ireland in Dublin, to the west coast of County Clare. From Galway, we made our way to the Burren, to see the iconic Cliffs of Moher.
