Dispatches From Dublin

Wow, it’s been nearly a month since my last update!  The main reason for this post is that I’ve completed my photos from Dublin, but I realize for anyone who doesn’t check Facebook, you may not know I ever got back!  It...

Dublin Dénouement

Ah, my time in Dublin is rapdily diminshing like the grains of sand between my fingers.  If all goes as planned, this time tomorrow I’ll be in France! Yesterday I awoke to a gray and misty wet day.  I immediately recognized it...

Irish Ghosts

Yesterday was bus day. There’s no other name for it. I knew it was worth it to go ahead and waste a night than adding another night in Galway and losing today getting here, but it didn’t make it nicer knowing that....

Connemara and Killary Fjord

I’ve spent the past two nights here in Connemara at the Sleepzone Connemara overlooking the Killary Fjord. Reputedly this is the only Fjord in Ireland. Lonely Planet suggests that it’s not technically a fjord as it wasn’t glaciated. I’m not sure who...

Goodbye Galway

I think I’ve done fairly well with my couch potato plans. I haven’t exactly been laying on a couch, but I’m also having an equally hard time coming up with what exactly I have been doing. I have wandered some and seen...

Galway Potato

So, we’re working our way through day two of my planned couch potatoing. Oh and yes, for those who didn’t see my post on Facebook, I am off the island at last! No disrespect for Inis Mor and the Aran Islands. I...

Abandon All Hope

It’s not just the pizza island, it’s the island of no return! No ferries ran today because of a storm. The winds were “50km” per hour. You do the math my friends who live in miles as I do. I just know...

Vote Me Off This Island

Well, yesterday, the sun was shining again! I had breakfast and watched for the morning ferry to arrive and then bounced down to the road to join a tour. Managed to get in with three others with a good guide. We saw...

Aran Island Couch Potato

Wow, to say today was unproductive would not be an exaggeration. And I’m not exactly bothered. You see yesterday I hit my own mental brick wall. I’ve enjoyed my trip, but with few exceptions, I’ve been out wandering every day for two...

Galway – Winter Wonderland

Where to begin, basically a two day catch-up here. I woke up Friday to a foggy and colder Galway. Considering I barely escaped Dublin, all I could think was my Saturday ferry to Inis Mór might be in danger, but what can...
