Visit to the Birthplace of Eva's Journey

Hi, my name is Isabelle and I'm 8 years old. Today, I want to tell you all about my recent visit to the birthplace of one of my favorite authors, Judi Curtin. She was born in the beautiful city of Cork, which is in Ireland.

My family and I went on a trip to Cork during our summer vacation, and I was so excited to visit the place where Judi Curtin grew up. We visited her birthplace, which is a cozy little house in the heart of the city. It was amazing to think that such a talented author started her journey right there!

While we were in Cork, we also visited a famous tourist attraction called Blarney Castle. It's located just outside the city and is known for its magical stone. Legend has it that if you kiss the Blarney Stone, you'll be given the gift of eloquence. I didn't kiss it though because it looked a bit scary being so high up!
