Must have a wee word in the ear of that travel agent!
Anyway, we are now in Ireland, Dublin to be exact.
We have landed in the midst of Easter celebrations compounded by the anniversary of the 1916 Easter uprising.
What a cool time to be in this city…it's a 4 day party, albeit with a serious side for most people. The parades today were for the Irish who have moved away from Ireland, but tomorrow is the actual anniversary day and there are 1mio people expected into the city.
We spent the day photographing cobbled streets, people, little pubs etc. There seemed to be musicians at every corner - some good some not so much. This guy was great.
When it started raining so we popped into a pub for shelter - the girls had wine & Guinness. No, not together; I had the wine. The boys didn't partake - which was amusing & odd! I tried a sip of draught Guinness - its very different from what I have tasted in NZ and I quite liked it - very smooth. Judy described it as a beer milkshake!
I don't know if it's because this is a religious country, but there seems to be a heightened level of excitement about Easter that isn't evident in NZ.
Sorry no photos today - I'm too tired to edit them.
We collect the car tomorrow and head for Galway.
