You’d think that I would get tired of always leaving my blog on a cliffhanger, wouldn’t you? But no, I just keep on leaving you all hanging. Sorry about that! In all fairness, all the “what we did” posts for our recent Ireland/Northern Ireland/Scotland trip were done, but I never even let you know if […]

The time has nearly come for the road to take us back home. We’ve had a great time on this trip, but we’ve definitely reached the point where we’re ready to just be back home, in our own space, and with our own stuff (and not living out of suitcases). But that’s tomorrow! We’ve still […]

Feet up, drink in hand (well, next-to-hand), a nice, Irish breeze (hey, we’re in Ireland, so the breezes are Irish by default) blowing in the window, and the sounds of Dublin around us. Today was a good day to explore Dublin – great temperature, sunny without being TOO sunny, a nice breeze, and everything we […]

After yesterday’s amazing Cliffs of Moher trip, today was much quieter in comparison, mostly because we were traveling part of the day. It was time to say goodbye to Galway and migrate to our final stop on this trip, Dublin. Technically, Dublin is where this trip started, but only because that’s where our flight from […]

In a word, today was…OUTSTANDING! Why, you ask? We went on the BEST day trip today and we had phenomenal weather to boot. What could be better?? As with our Giant’s Causeway day trip from Belfast, we also booked this excursion through Viator (actual tour company was Galway Tour Company) and, as usual, they didn’t […]

Today turned out to be a bit of a lazy day in Galway and that’s A-OK with me. As I mentioned in my last post, since Galway isn’t very big, we didn’t have a lot of things on our to-do list here and we checked several of them off yesterday. Today was all about getting […]

We’re in a new city! This morning, it was goodbye Belfast and hello Galway (well technically that last part happened this afternoon). Galway isn’t a terribly big place, so when we were making our travel plans, we figured out that taking a bus(es) would be the best way to get here. That involved taking a […]

Every time I think I can’t come up with a snappy, alliterative title for a blog post, my brain throws me a bone. I’m sleepy and in Scotland?! The title writes itself! Anyway, it’s 8 PM on our first day of this trip and you know that that means – bed time! Making it this […]

Or cheers, as we say in the US. 🙂 We have boarded our flight here in Minneapolis and will be taking off shortly. As I mentioned in my last post, we sprung for Business Class on this flight, so we’re looking forward to flying in comfort. Nice seat to Dublin! And a pre-flight drink. See […]

I may have just gotten back from a trip to Six Flags (lots of fun, by the way), but it’s time for another international trip, don’t you think? Yes, that’s right – Scott and I are off on another adventure tomorrow! We’ll be hitting the UK (Scotland and Northern Ireland, but no London this time […]
