Ireland and Scotland Trip Recap
I do not have sufficient vocabulary to tell you how wonderful and beautiful it was, so instead I’ll give you a rundown of what we did and how it went.
This is an overview — there is so much more I could say about everything, but that would take more time than I have right now and the article would be way too long for anyone to read. If you’re interested in details about any place I talk about, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to give you more information.
Day 1 — Saturday — travel day
We left our hometown in Arizona around 11am our time. Three flights and several hours later, we landed in Ireland at around 11am their time, the next day.
Day 2 — Sunday
We had been encouraged to sleep on the plane because we were going to get right to the tour as soon as we landed — no going to a hotel to sleep off the jet lag. Fortunately, I was able to sleep pretty well, so I was ready to go.
Our tour guide, Pauline, met us at the airport, and once we’d gathered our bags we headed to the bus. We met our bus driver, Jimmy, and set out on the drive to County Kerry. We stopped at a travel plaza for lunch and a bathroom break, and then headed on to our hotel in Tralee. And I had this weird thing to open the door to my room….
Originally we had been booked at another hotel, but that hotel was housing Ukranian refugees, so we were moved to this one. When we checked in, we found out there was an Irish show called Celtic Steps at the hotel — and we could get tickets for the following evening if we wanted. Umm, yes, please!
We had dinner at the hotel, and then we had some free time before bed, so we took a walk around the area. I have two words for you: thatched roofs!
