READER REVIEW: "Like most vacations that go awry, they are never forgotten! This is a travel memoir of author Kerry Dwyer and her husband, Bertrand, traveling to Ireland for a walking sightseeing trip...You know how the best laid out plans go? Not too well at times. From selecting backpacks, to forgetting the water repellent spray for boots, to getting lost on the edge of a cliff in dense fog, you have to know there are many humorous events which Kerry describes very well. I enjoyed this travel story which had me laughing along the way, as well as cheering them on their successes. I also thought of how funny a sitcom this would make on BBC, like the many I've enjoyed watching. I've always said, everyone has a story to tell, and talented Kerry has provided a fun read in her "Ramblings."" --NancyofUtah

This is not a book about rambling in Ireland.
It tells the tale of one particular walking trip and the memories and musings it inspired.
Exploring the West of Ireland is a time for meditation, spiritual reflection and strengthening the bonds of life. More practically the ability to read a map might have proved helpful. The tourist office in Ireland has all their paths clearly marked. You can’t go wrong if you follow that little yellow man. Or can you?
As British ex-patriate Kerry Dwyer leads Bertrand, her trusting French husband, astray once more, they reminisce and reflect upon accents and accidents, family and friends, love and what it means to be alive. Bertrand doesn’t mind getting lost - he loves Kerry all the more for going off the beaten track.
This is a book about ramblings in Ireland. Walk with Kerry and Bertrand and follow where your thoughts lead you.
Kerry Dwyer was born in Yorkshire, England. She was educated in the Home Counties. She spent nearly twenty five years working in finance in Europe and America before moving to South West France where she still lives. She works as an English Teacher to adults and writes in her spare time.
Her first book, "Ramblings in Ireland," was inspired by a holiday walking in Cork and Kerry with her French husband. She explores the cross channel cultural differences and rambles in the true Freudian sense.
