Well after our time in Galway we decided to head to Kilkenny for new years to catch up with Rob and Mickey, two Irish guys we'd met kloofing in South Africa.
Rob was very kind and gave us a bed in his house and everything. Unfortunately Rohan wasn't feeling well so we managed to squeeze a spot in at the local doctors surgery in the afternoon. He was put on a course of antibiotics and some paracetamol to fix him up, but he still should have spent the evening in bed. Instead he insisted we go out (we were in Ireland on new years eve... I don't think anything could've stopped him) and so after a few guiness'in Rob's lounge room we headed down to the local pub to catch up with some of Rob's mates. We then headed to a pub/club down the street. An amazing place, the building itself dates back to medieval times. Vaguely remember a story about a witch being burned at the stake there or something...
Anyway, we were seated downstairs in the old cellar. The place was packed and we drunk and danced and sung the night a way.
All up we had an awesome time, Rob and his mates really looked after us (maybe a little too well) and we had a ball!

Unfortunately we had to get up the next morning around 9 to catch our bus to the airport. Wasn't fun.

Well Happy New Year to everyone.

Missing you all
