Ooooh, what a good day I had today! Not even a hint of rain, mostly sunny, great temperature, and I got to experience more new-to-me stuff. I love that fact that, as many times as I’ve been to London, I keep finding new ways to experience it. πŸ™‚ After a good night’s sleep and breakfast […]

For once (on this trip), I’m writing (well, starting) a new post for a day during that day! I was hoping to get it all written tonight, but I doubt I will. Still, it won’t matter to you, dear reader, because you won’t see it until it’s all done anyway! I had another day of […]

Another morning, another post! That seems to be the way this trip is going so far, anyway. πŸ™‚ I’m happy to report that I’m sat in the hotel lounge/breakfast area as I write this, with sun shining through the windows once again. The weather has really cooperated nicely these first two days, though I did […]

Well, well, well – we meet again, London! Is anyone surprised that I’m squeezing in another trip to my favorite city before the end of the year? If so, you shouldn’t be! Would I shrivel up and die if I didn’t pay London a visit in a calendar year? Medical professionals would tell you no, […]

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 […]

We’re still in Belfast, but that’s not where we spent our day today. Instead, we took a fabulous day trip that took us to several great places: Giant’s Causeway – a UNESCO Heritage site, this amazing basalt rock formation next to the ocean is said to have been created by two giants. Dunluce Castle – […]

Our first full day in Belfast is in the books! And it’s our only full day here, since we only had part of yesterday, we have a full-day sidestep out of Belfast tomorrow, and we leave for Galway on Saturday morning. I really think we made the most of it though and the weather was […]

Now that I finally got yesterday’s post out of the way (geeze, that one took longer than I thought it would!), I can focus on today’s (which also won’t be ready today, but if you’re reading this five years from now, you don’t care anyway). Today was an interesting one from a travel standpoint. What […]

Oooooh, my dogs are barkin’! And by dogs, I mean feet. And by barkin’, I mean hurtin’. But today (actually Monday, as I didn’t quite finish this post in time) was another great day, so the temporary foot tiredness is just fine. If that was really a problem for me, I wouldn’t travel the way […]

Is there anything better than a great night’s sleep? How about a great night of sleep that lasts for about 11 hours after basically not sleeping at all the night before? Yeah, that’s how today felt! It was sooooo nice to a) go to bed at a decent time (930p) and b) still wake up […]
