KRISTY GILLIES IS from Australia and visited Ireland last August.
She stayed in Carraroe in Galway for a few nights, before hitting Dublin. London and Scotland were on her itinerary too.
Kristy told DailyEdge.ie that:
Ireland was by far my favourite part of the trip. I kept a travel diary the whole time and would write these “Stuff I Learned” summaries.
Her lessons from Ireland included:
‘The Luck of the Irish’ refers to their ability to survive the roads. Seriously, these people are insane, especially on country roads. I have never been more terrified in my life, and I like rollercoasters.
They talk about being Irish a lot.
So, what else did she learn about Ireland?

If you are a little confused by the first point, Kristy explains:
…the context for the ‘snot’ thing was that I was in London first, and while I was there snot was black. Snot was fine in Scotland too.
