I stumbled on Emma Barrett’s blog today and was fascinated to see her description of her visit to the Dublin Writers Museum, which opened in 1991 (three years after I left Ireland, which is why I’ve never been there—but I’m shocked that I hadn’t even heard of it!). I love good travel writing and this is a fine example.
I am not one for clichéd tourist destinations, always having preferred to browse the shelves of Shakespeare and Co in Paris rather than visit the Eiffel Tower. I am proud to say I have never been to Egypt or the pyramids, happy to leave that to the 3 million people who go there every year.
