We just got back from 5 day road trip. What a country! It is beautiful in rain or sunshine. Heather did all of the driving while I navigated. Think we made good team, except when we got lost in Belfast. The first day ended in Ballycastle, a little resort village where we met some great people. I'll upload photos with comments, and try to add more text later. We are in Dublin for the last weekend and hope to do all the touristy things we missed last week.
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?
