I liked the part where he soared over the hills of Donegal because it made his heart happy and I’m from Donegal so it makes me happy too.

I liked all of it,

My favourite bit was when the geese flew across the Atlantic Ocean to Greenland past the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights looked cool and Barney never felt so happy.
