As soon as Lucy walked into the lobby of my hostel, I immediately recognized her and received a huge hug. Outside, I was met by her husband Patrick (who I also recognized) and her three daughters. It was completely surreal to see them – a blast from the past yet it has been so long so it almost felt like a first introduction.
We went for coffee and snacks and then walked around Grafton street and Temple Bar, talking and catching up the whole time. Such a special reunion and a meaningful way to experience Dublin.
