  • "Wild Mountain Thyme"After a heavy day of driving yesterday, there is consensus that no alarms would be set this morning, breakfast would be leisurely and we would wander around Galway's old town. However a blue sky again lures us into the Renault Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jul 1, 2015
  • "Bein' Green"The buffet breakfast at Belfast's Holiday Inn Express is more expansive than Dublin's but the 'potato bread' comes nowhere close to the former's soda bread toast and the coffee is just plain awful. The BBC on the TV in the Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jun 29, 2015
  • "And It Stoned Me"One objective for this week was to visit either the Aran or Skellig Islands. The sun shines as we rise this morning so the former is today's destination. We ponder the merits of a €60 door-to-door bus trip but decide Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jun 30, 2015
  • "Down By The Riverside"Today we farewell Galway, but not before a walk around the 'pedestrianised' streets of the old town itself. It is a colourful little precinct with shops brightly painted and flags hanging from above. The River Corrib flows around the perimeter Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jul 2, 2015
  • "Full Force Gale"With memories of the time that Barak Obama derailed our travel plans in Berlin, today's Ring Of Kerry Charity Ride derails our planned sightseeing there. The entire ring is closed as local and international cyclists take to the road. This Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jul 3, 2015
  • "Just A Closer Walk With Thee"'And did those feet in ancient times, Walk up on England's mountains green?'... My mind turns to Elgar's 'Blake's Jerusalem' as we head to Drimoleague, about one hour south-east of Kenmare en route to Cork. Sure, it's not England, but the hills Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jul 4, 2015
  • "Stranded"Note to self: check school holiday dates before booking future flights. Yesterday was the end of term, so not only was every flight 100% full but included children of all ages. Still, behaviour was very acceptable and I manage something Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jun 26, 2015
  • "That's Life"A new city to explore but instead I am consumed by our missing cases. Day Two in the same clothes, including flying and sleeping. Unchargeable camera. Minimal toiletries. Calculating whether my hand luggage stash of prescription drugs will last until Posted by jbushie in Greenery, Greatness, Greece & Granitas! | Jun 28, 2015
  • The Emerald Isle - Galway (Part 3)Today we were headed to Galway and on the way we stopped in Adare which was a quaint storybook village. We had a little time to walk around and take in the sights. [img=http://photos.trave Posted by tammy_b in Our next great adventure... | Aug 16, 2016
  • Blarney/Waterford - Day 8Left Killarney behind on our way to Blarney, just outside of Cork, Ireland in the very south of this country.

  • Rathbaun Farm/Cliffs of Moher/Killarney - Day 6 Leaving the lush interior farmlands of Ireland, we then head out for the Western coast while crossing an area called the "Burren" (meaning large rock). Stretching across northern Clare, the rocky, windswept Burren region is a unique striated lunar-like la Posted by JGzindaUK in UK Trip - 2017 | Jul 24, 2017
  • The Emerald Isle - Killarney (Part 2)This morning the group was heading out to Killarney to spend the next three nights. On the way, we stopped at the Rock of Cashel which is an imposing walled structure that looms over the countryside. Within the Posted by tammy_b in Our next great adventure... | Aug 15, 2016
  • The Emerald Isle - Dublin (Part 1)My trip to Ireland was a gift to myself for a long-time personal goal that was finally achieved. The plan for this 10-day trip was to stay in Dublin, Killarney, and Galway for three days each and take day Posted by tammy_b in Our next great adventure... | Aug 14, 2016
  • Cute Hoor (Title of the blog is also a beer) Well we brought yesterday evening to a close with a fabulous Indian dinner (the food here has been great we have tried everything from Sushi to Pizza) an Posted by imalazyj in G^2 Adventures | Jul 21, 2017
  • Dublin - Clonmacnois and Galway - Day 5We finally left Dublin and drove to Clonmacnois Monastery that was established in 545ad.

  • Dublin/Dun Longhaire - Day 4Our first full tour day with the group after we checked into our new hotel, "The Royal Marine". Gorgeous place set right on the harbor! Posted by JGzindaUK in UK Trip - 2017 | Jul 19, 2017
  • Dublin - Day 3The last day on our own, before moving to Dun Loaghaire to join our travel group! Visited a very neat antique clock shop (Priceless Time) in Dublin with many very old clocks that had been restored to working condition. After that, Posted by JGzindaUK in UK Trip - 2017 | Jul 19, 2017
  • One man's Freedom Fighter is another man's TerroristThe title today was said by our guide today and it really resonated with me. It was said in relation to the Irish conflicts but I think it applies broadly to any conflict situation. Anyways... Today we started Posted by imalazyj in G^2 Adventures | Jul 19, 2017
  • Póg mo thóin! "Kiss my Ass" Another leisurely start to the day with coffee and breakie in our condo, we have settled right in and with the aid of some earplugs and some sleep substance inducing consumables, slept solidly through the night. We have decided Posted by imalazyj in G^2 Adventures | Jul 18, 2017
  • 'Happy Out'Okay, disclaimer I am writing this after a mini pub crawl tonight. So today, where does one start? Well the wine and the lack of sleep from our time travel Saturday kicked me in the arse which made Posted by imalazyj in G^2 Adventures | Jul 17, 2017
  • A Whale of Time!I wasn’t going to blog this particular adventure, G^2 has been to Ireland before (pre-blog era and pre-GPS era) so we figured our week in Dublin would be pretty low-key on the tourist activities and more like hanging out like Posted by imalazyj in G^2 Adventures | Jul 17, 2017
  • Dublin - Day 2Another beautiful day! After breakfast at the hotel, we walked out the door and QUICKLY turned around to get more clothes! Chilly 60 something degrees and a nice 10-15 mph wind blowing! B Posted by JGzindaUK in UK Trip - 2017 | Jul 17, 2017
  • Sine Metu (without fear)Wow - four days in Dublin and the weather has been very kind to us. The sun has shone, with a little mist and rain. We still can't believe we are in Ireland. It all started by being met at Posted by VTHGTravels in VTHG Great Adventure 2017 | Apr 1, 2017
  • The sheep look different hereWhat a busy week. Having left Dublin, we have driven through counties Galway, Clare and Kerry.
