A FEW OF THE TIMES PEOPLE TOLD ME I WAS "BRAVE" FOR TRAVELING ALONE...IN IRELAND...IN 2015

This was always said by other women. It's just weird and depressing and sort of flattering but mostly frustrating.
  1. Checking in to a B&B
    I'm planning to use the free wifi to watch more "Grace and Frankie" and think scary thoughts about aging and trust, so kinda.
  2. On a kayaking tour of a little bay
    No, you are the one who is brave. You and your husband are really bad at kayaking.
  3. At a pub
    What about the parents sitting next to me watching while their little daughter licks everything within reach? They seem pretty brave.
