"My boss was wondering if I'd be up for working in Dublin for a year. What would you think of moving to Ireland for a year?"
And so began the adventure, chronicled by his photographs and her written musings, as they explore monuments and meet people (and animals) who will leave an indelible mark on them and their children forever.
Follow them as they trek down livestock-riddled narrow lanes, traipse through fields to standing stones and megalithic tombs, and deal with the delightful and at-times maddening resistance on the Irish to the intrusions of the modern world.
But be warned: while prepared for an adventure, they didn't know they would fall in love. Which makes coming "home" that much more bittersweet.
