Recently took a trip to Inishbofin, played a gig and stayed over night.
I was lovely, the ferry over really added to the sense of adventure.
Life on the island is just so different, some just drive around without any tax or insurance and pubs close whenever people go home.
Everyone helps everyone for no reason; when we were moving gear to and from the ferry and someone started lending a hand
"do you work on the ferry?"
"no I'm just seeing someone off"
If you're expecting a package from the dock and a neighbor sees it, they'll just naturally think to bring it with them and give it to you.
Bicycles with no locks.
In a sense it like my spiritual home, I wish everybody lived like the people on small islands live, I wouldn't even call it 'kindness', just practical and laid back and considerate.
A real eyeopener.
Then there is the view you would form if you were there on winter when the days at short and the storms more frequent than on the mainland...
