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 […]

Welcome to Northern Ireland! It’s a first-time visit for both of us here in Belfast, so we’re excited to explore a new place and to add a new city to our repertoire. And we had a nice, easy travel experience from Edinburgh, with a VERY quick (30-35 minutes) flight on Flybe. I can’t say I’d […]
