Kosuke, is 3 months in Ireland already, first landed in Co. Clare, he decided on traveling when he was unsure of where his future lay, instead of making quick decision he decided to dwell on it for a year. ended up in Longford Town, thanks to Billy & Jean Beahen, he met billy in Rooskey where billy was working for awhile, and just got chatting to Kosuke, whom said he was looking for a new host family, which he was having trouble finding.. He travelled via host family's on a programme called wwoofing, Wwoof.
Hosts take in international travellers for work and stay system, you can travel all corners of the world with it.
Bill and Jean are not, such hosts, but only in Ireland would you get such a welcome and hand, decided to help out, and he helped them with a few chores.
He was just leaving for Sligo when I bumped into to him, he was very very grateful to Billy & Jean, they gave him some great experience, offcourse some spins on motorcycle, Billy being a biker. Also brought him to Tullynally Castle, among other things, including his first taste of Cider.
A very pleasant guy, his English a little rough around the edges but he learns quickly. He said he wanted to learn new experiences, and found he has more motivation now, more passion than he had when he was at home. a great experience to live with family's and see who they live, give me a new look on life, and more openness, thank I would have thought possible.
I was staying with lovely couple in Rooskey, Marion Van Der Pol, who kindly came in to drop him into to train station and say goodbyes. I'm somewhat spiritual not practising though, a Buddhist left me with
I am a lot more open minded, having done what I have done already, that's my advice to anybody, travel and experience and change your life
