Pam on the Map: Ireland: (Retrospective) (Paperback)
In 2005, Pam Stucky toured the Republic of Ireland by bus for seventeen days, logging dozens of hours on public transportation as she traveled to Galway, Inishmore, Doolin, Dingle, Kinsale, Cashel, Kilkenny, Glendalough, and Dublin. In this short travelogue, Pam shares the tales of her adventures, from nearly losing her wallet in Galway, to being mistaken for a local on Inishmore, to swaying home from a pub late at night, supporting three drunkenly singing senior citizens in Doolin. In Inishmore, she conspired with a local to rent a bike for free; in Cashel, she managed to get herself locked inside her B&B room; at Newgrange, she peered back through the veil of time. She chatted with locals, braved a haunted fort, and bore witness to some of the country's most important history. Through it all, she was always on the hunt for internet caf's from which to send home her stories. Filled with wit and wanderlust, Pam on the Map: Ireland offers one woman's perspective on her first solo foray into the world of travel. Pam on the Map: Ireland is one of the "retrospective" books in the Pam on the Map series.
