Fabulous, fabulous time in UK and Ireland so far. Will post a few choice pics when I can get my laptop hooked into broadband.
On a plane. Then crashing at a BnB down south in the English countryside.
Sinead’s brother Colin’s wedding in Bournemouth. Beatiful ceremony. Party went on all night.
Train to London. Underground to King’s Cross. Run through rain to a BnB. Stroll over to British Museum before it closed. Pint of Guiness and food at an O’Neil’s in King’s Cross. Jet lag sets in and we crash by 9pm.
Awake at 4am. Off to the earliest sight-seeing start in history. Tower Bridge. Tower of London (our Beefeater-guided tour was incredible). Tube to Big Ben and Parliament. Ride the Eye of London. Walk to Trafalger square. Hire a rickshaw to ride through Leicester Square and Picadilly Circus. Buy CDs at Virgin Megastore. Tube back to King’s Cross, more pints over food, crash by 10pm.
Realize flight leaves earlier than we thought, cab to Paddington Station, race onto Heathrow Express, train to Heathrow, run through Terminal One to catch flight to Dublin … Chilling in Dublin now, relaxing a bit, looking foward to a week in Ireland.
