In July of 2017, I was blessed to go to Europe for the first time. I flew from JFK Airport in NYC to Edinburgh Airport in Scotland. These are my pictures from the plane. It was an amazing adventure which I will always treasure.
From the first glimmer of the sunrise…
…to the sun finally peeking over the horizon.
Once the sun had finally risen, I could not get enough of the view.
The higher the sun rose, the more the colors changed.
Our plane had personal monitors to show our flight progress and destination so I knew I was finally over Ireland.
The clouds cleared and you can see part of Ireland. I actually wept when I saw this view for the first time. I was finally seeing “home.”
It got cloudy again before arriving in Scotland.
Finally, my other “home.” Arriving in Scotland, I actually squealed. I’m not kidding, I did.
This was my first journey across the Atlantic in this lifetime. There will be many more. I found my true “home” in Scotland and Ireland. The home of my ancestors and where my heart lives.
I will make several more posts showing my pictures of my first adventure in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland. Dreams do come true.
