Hello from Ireland!
Garett, Cassandra, and I spent the weekend in the beautiful country of Ireland. It was quite a busy weekend with very little sleep, but the astonishing sights made everything completely worth it, and we managed to luck out with incredible weather! Saturday morning we were up and out of the hostel at 7am to catch our “Paddywagon Tour”. The tour visited a few Irish towns along the coast but the highlight of the tour was our stop to the Cliffs of Moher. We want to pass on a special hello from the Cliffs to fellow Vindolanda volunteers Angie and Ken!
On Sunday Garett explored the city of Dublin while Cassandra and I took a half day tour of the “Gardens of Ireland” stopping at Glendalough and Wicklow national parks. The scenery was absolutely stunning. It was really neat to walk through Glendalough park where the wedding scene from the movie “Brave Heart” was filmed, and drive over the famous bridge from the movie “P.S I Love You.” We all met up after lunch to enjoy a tour of the Guinness storehouse and have dinner together.
A second, and definitely longer trip to Ireland has already started brewing in our minds while we sit in the airport ready to head back for more adventure in Haltwhistle.
