Grey haired nomads' Guestbook

They were digging for gold in London...
...well that's what the Irish did in those days, didn't they? But, for all that they found there, they might as well have been - so the song goes - 'where the Mountains of Morne sweep down to the sea'. They had more luck during the gold rush of the 19th Century, I'm told - hence 'the luck of the Irish'. Here endeth the history lesson for today! Despite the few dry days (give me India's weather any day!), you clearly enjoyed your month in the Emerald Isle - some great stories and photos. I'll have to go back to Eire some day - it's been more than 55 years since my last visit.

Bringing Back Good Memories
Enjoyed reading your account of your trip 'round parts of Ireland; it brought back many good memories of our own trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland several years ago. Great photos!

On my 10-feet long bucket list
I've been to Irish Ireland (56 years ago!), but never to British Ireland. Belfast has now been added to my ever-lengthening bucket list. But did you not take the Titanic Tour - early risers like you get a £5 discount! Looking forward to Only for the Brave 5.

On my 10-feet bucket list.
Hi Mike, Our bucket list gets shorter as we start to realise you can't do it all anyway. And, no, we didn't do the Titanic experience. It sank, didn't it? There are Titanic things everywhere, taking money from 'tourists' (and I don't like deep water anyway). Speak soon. David

vicarious voyage
Your blog has always been a way to see things I'll never get around to. Still enjoying the travels: keep it up, and happy trails to you as they say down in Texas!

Hi there, enjoying following your Ireland trip, it wouldn't be the same with out the rain! xxx

...and all on our doorstep.
Hi Moira and Graeme, Yes, and why did we leave it so long? I guess, as I said earlier, it's cheaper and easier to get to 'the continent'. Received your latest blog - another great one! You'll soon be back to the real world, but what a marvellous experience. Life is made of memories. See you soon! David

Fanad Head lighthouse

A beautiful journey
The wonder of your journey captured in your eloquent words and beautiful images. A window looking out on Ireland at it's best for sure.

A beautiful journey
Thanks, Dave, O’Flattery will get you everywhere! A journey we should have made earlier and one we should have taken more time over. A month was not quite enough. David

A full life of travel
For years I had no interest in going to Ireland. Once we finally went I fell in love and wish we'd gone so much sooner. I can hear those winds a blowing. Never tire of those scenic drives and amazing castles along the landscape dotted with sheep in all directions. Nothing could be finer.

Armchair travel
Hello Marjorie, Good to hear from you and hoping all is well there in lovely Canada. We'll be in Huntsville with Tom and Lexie around 18th September all being well and will be in touch to arrange a meet somewhere when dates are confirmed! Looking forward to it. David and Janice

Dá mbeadh an ghrian ag taitneamh i gcónaí, nach mbeadh sé ar a dtugtar an 'Emerald Isle'!
It's a beautiful country - when the sun shines - but you were clearly swept off your feet by the 'The Cliffs off Moher'. :0) (Oh, and if you use Google to translate this comment's title, it'll be obvious that it's what we English refer to as 'Irish'!).

Hello David and Janice, You are so lucky to be able to travel together for so many years. You are amazing. So nice to get your story and photos of this trip to Ireland.
Fortunate that Todd could travel with you. Barry and I enjoyed meeting you in Newfoundland, Canada in August 2006 at the campground. Unfortunately Barry passed away on Sept. 12, 2009. I miss him every day. We were together over 54 years, married almost 51 years. We so enjoyed travelling over the years,too. All best wishes. Look forward to the next blog for wherever you choose to travel next. Blessings to you. Enjoy each moment NOW. Love, Sally p.s. Barry's mom was a Ryan, her mother was born in Ireland.

Fond memories
Hello Sally, We still remember our meeting and all those wonderful wild flowers and geology we shared with you and Barry in Newfoundland so many years ago. We value every day as you rightly suggest and still try to live life to the full as the clock continues to tick relentlessly by! Thank you for remembering us - and all our best wishes. David and Janice I have a good friend, a Ryan, too! (David)

Finding heaven
I do love going places where there is no internet and phone don't work. What an amazing moment to see her hiding in the bush... and then again walking across the track. I wish Janice had been there to see this. Don't ever make Mike angry because you have the world's best travel planner and you don't want to give him up!.

Wow!

Big Kitty Cat!
This is so gorgeous! How lucky you were to have multiple sightings of these amazing animals... especially considering other tourists may not have even got through the gates with the strike. We intend to go back to this part of the world some day, and I need to make note of this park.

Remote places
Hello Dave, Mike certainly finds the most remote places when he plans these journeys. The Thar Desert is still to come if I ever get around to the next blog. Meanwhile we’re off to Ireland for a month tomorrow!

Wonderful image David. Captures those memories of remote places and locals going about their business sharing a ride on lonely roads. Brilliant.
