Welcome Home!
Yay! Glad to read you made it back safely, and that it sounded like a wonderful trip for you both. Sorry to hear you got the dreaded middle seat, not nice at all! But what a lovely welcome from your kitty, I love your alcoholic souvenirs, and I'm sure indeed you have many memories of your lovely trip to Ireland to savour. Thank you for taking me along on your journey with you 😊

Home and Reflections
Thanks very much Alex for reading my blog, I’m glad you enjoyed travelling with us! We’ve already enjoyed a gin and tonic made with the Cork Dry gin we got in Ireland. 😃 I’m looking forward to reading about your future travels.

Thank you!
Yes indeed, I have very much enjoyed travelling along with you in your blog. I also find the Irish such wonderful, warm and hospitable people, and I just love the accent too! Thank you for sharing your travel experiences in Eire, it has certainly inspired me to visit our closest neighbour. I have also enjoyed reading about your time in the North of Ireland, a beautiful corner with such an important history and present to learn about. I look forward to reading your post-trip reflections 😊

The Troubles
I also took a walk through the Falls Road and Shankill Road areas during my visit last year. It was also for me a real eye opener into the situation, and made me realise how tricky it has been, and must still be, to move forward given the dark days of the past. It's truly incredible that the peace agreement was reached, and I continue to pray for the peaceful future of beautiful Northern Ireland.

Dublin
Yes, that's true. We're very fortunate here in Europe to be able to travel so easily to other countries.

Giant's Causeway
Definitely my favourite place in Northern Ireland. I'm glad you made it out there! The coastal scenery around there is just stunning. I remember The Crown Bar well, as just beyond it is the bus stop where I took my bus from back to my BnB. And Fish 'n' Chips - what a great way to finish off the day with 😊

Giant's Causeway
I loved the Causeway Coast, it was so beautiful! I really enjoyed the Carrick-a-Rede bridge too, it was so much fun, and the scenery was breathtaking. The Crown Bar was very nice inside - we managed to squeeze in for a pint after our trip to the Giant's Causeway :)

Belfast and the Titanic
Your blog reminds me so much of my time in Belfast last year. I took practically the same route to and from the Titanic Museum. A wonderful exhibition, and very moving indeed. I also find it hard to understand a Northern Irish accent!

Belfast and the Titanic
We really enjoyed the Titanic Museum - it was so well done. And the building itself is very striking. I'm glad we got to see it in the sun on our last day when we did the hop on hop off bus, since it was raining the day we went to the museum.

Sulking sky
Ah yes, I see what you mean about the weather you had in Volubilis - our photos from Meknes and Fes have a similar tone... we did walking tours in the rain :(

Sulking sky
The clouds didn't lend themselves to nice photos, but it was quite pleasant when we were in Volubilis. For some reason the photos seem to appear darker on travelblog. Too bad about rain in Fes and Meknes (we had a little drizzle in Meknes), but the weather improved for you later right? I remember seeing lots of blue sky photos :) We've had our share of walking tours in the rain (particularly in Ireland)!

Flight of beer at the Montreal airport

Flying out of the airport
A flight for your flight is a grand idea. Solid planning.

Ah, we do enjoy our flights!

Reflections
I enjoyed this post, especially your reflection on The Troubles. I have a good friend from Dublin and we often discuss the repercussions of a hard border inside Ireland. It will be a sad day if that happens. Not surprisingly, my fave photo of the blog is Ella on the tissue paper with that curled paw of happiness - what a gorgeous one she is :)
18th June 2019

Reflections
Thanks Ren. It sure hope they work out the ramifications of brexit without damaging the peace in Northern ireland. Ella loves her tissue paper - we'll have to keep it until it's in tatters! BTW, she's not as chubby as she appears in photos :)

Dublin
Very interesting. I hope to visit Dublin and Ireland at some point soon. It's one of those places that is so near, yet one travels to other more far-off places first... I'm glad the sun was out for you there 😊
17th June 2019

Dublin
Thanks Alex. I would definitely recommend visiting Dublin and south west Ireland. It's funny how you end up travelling to more distant places before closer ones - but I am jealous of you being so close to so many places - compared to us in Canada :).

Horseback Riding
What a beautiful way of seeing the Irish countryside, on horseback! The Dingle Peninsula looks stunning, and I'm glad that the weather seemed mostly to hold off for you there. And a lovely rainbow to greet your return to Dublin with! I believe the Irish say that a leprechaun hides a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow 😊
17th June 2019

Horseback Riding
Yes, the horseback ride was a fantastic way of seeing the countryside, and I'm so glad we did it. It was nice to have some nicer weather, for sure (Ireland certainly had very changeable weather even on nicer days). Unfortunately we didn't find the pot of gold!

I've enjoyed following your blogs...
you both had great food, plenty to drink, and sights to see. So where were your ancestors from?
14th June 2019

I've enjoyed following your blogs
Thanks very much Bob. I didn't do any ancestor hunting on this trip, I didn't have enough specific information on the Irish ancestors I have in the Republic, and we didn't have enough time to investigate my great grandmother's roots in Northern Ireland. Perhaps on a future trip. Thanks for reading!

Love your travel blogs
Howdie girls, we have both really enjoyed your travel news past and present, thank you for including and remembering us. We have yet to visit Ireland, but in 2016 we had a mammoth 10 week trip which included Scotland, England, France, Spain, and Morocco. Currently we are both still working so that when we travel it's business class baby!! We are both well, grandparents and as Billy Connelly says "making groaning noises getting in and out of a chair." A true sign of maturity of body 😂😂 You made it to Vietnam, we hope you can make it down under one day. Take care and keep well and happy. 💜🌹🍀🍀🍀🍀

Love your travel blogs
Hi Chris and Grant, so good to hear from you! Thanks for reading my blogs. Your 2016 trip sounded fantastic. Did you like Morocco? We were there last fall and really enjoyed it. I would love to see Scotland - all those castles! Business class is the way to go - unfortunately we are stuck in economy :(. Susan knows all about "making groaning noises getting in and out of a chair", hah. We would love to visit Australia and we definitely will one day - we would love to see you both. If you have any plans to visit Canada, we've got a spare room with your name on it. Take care, love Lori & Susan
