Yup, we love the hotel's atrium. This is the best place to either read a book, have lunch, people watch or simply relax with a tea pot.
Missing this place already. I wonder which was better, exploring Ireland or laughing with best friend? Somehow both meshed into a wonderful journey as we explored Ireland. Today is the equinox and it is a fitting time to come full circle. We had supper at the Thai restaurant that we tried to find on the first day that we arrived. We were early and got a table, but within half an hour the place was filled. The city is overflowing with dismal Kerry fans. As per our habit, we ended up in the atrium, happy for the peace and comfort. Now is the time to go through receipts and maps and try to chronical our trip. We promise that we'll do a better job next week, writing more about our adventures. Meanwhile, may I say that this has been a wonderful holiday.
I have a year to travel starting this summer of 2008. I will start in the United Kingdom, then cross to Ireland. Then I plan to go to Poland and Ukraine. Depending upon the political climate, I may venture into Turkey. In preparation, I have spent many hours reading other peoples' blogs. I wonder how my adventure will unfold?

Circled IrelandHere is the map of our travels. Can you see the pink highlighted route? From Dublin we went north to Ballycastle, then southwest to Galway, then south to Killarney, then back up to Dublin.
BestWhen thinking about the past ten days, it is difficult to choose what was the best. I think the laughter, with new friends, and the glorius landscape that flowed past the car windows was the best.
