Lunch at E.J. Kings in Clifden, Connemara in Ireland. You may have thought that Irish food was all about over-cooked vegetables and mashed potatoes. Well, it’s not. I found this type of meal, with fresh salad, homemade bread and smoked salmon, a standard menu offering in many of the places where we ate during our trip.

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven
I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before.
My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers.
I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog.
Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

looks super yummy!!
Definitely looks refreshing and light. Brown bread is so satisfying; wish it were easier to get stateside!
I just came across your comments this morning at my desk. I work for EJ Kings and am delighted you found our food satisfying and to your taste. We have another bar/restaurant in Galway city called Busker Brownes and it just got a great review in the local paper.
If you are not yet returned to the US pop in and try us anytime. Let me know and I will help accommodate you.
Or if you are still in Clifden, you know where we are if you need anything!
All the best
