Testimonial from US based herbalist/ author/ teacher extraordinaire Rosemary Gladstar for the Sept. 2016 & May 2017 Plant Lovers’ Journey to Ireland organised and guided by Wild Routes Ireland.
“Chris and Tara were amazing guides on our first Plant Lover’s Journey to Ireland! Chris did an outstanding job creating an itinerary that was not only inspiring, but incredibly fun. We woke up every day with a new adventure planned. As nature and plant lovers, we spent a great deal of our time outdoors in the beautiful countryside, Walking through sacred woods, ancient groves, and visiting sacred sites. Tara, being Irish to her core, was able to share with us the magic of her homeland and enrich our journey with her stories and ceremonies. And what really made the trip for most of us, was the opportunity to meet so many wonderful Irish people ~ artists, musicians, storytellers, the Irish herbal community ~ all were invited to be part of our journey.”
