I am lucky to live in rural Ireland. I am surrounded by trees, fields and hedgerows. You are more likely to see a tractor on our small single track road than a car.
While I grew up not far from where I live now, I have lived, and worked in towns and cities. But for me the countryside is my place in the world. Here I get to enjoy the things I love. Nature and open spaces. And my children get to enjoy the freedom I did as a child. That is worth so much more to me than anything a city could offer.
