Rumor has it, they speak something akin to English in Ireland. I hope so, ’cause that’s where I’ll be for the next week, and I don’t have time to learn a new language.
As we’ve discussed here before, there comes a time where you just have to draw a line in the sand and commit to some down time…or at least a decent diversion from the routine.
My wife of 30 years and I are celebrating the event by doing a self-driving tour of Ireland with my sister and her husband. We have reservations at various locations around the country…castles, hotels, and B ‘n’ B’s, but in between the roadway answers to our whim.
I’ll be dropping in to see a production studio in Dublin, and occasionally checking email when we can find Wi-Fi, but mostly, I’ll be enjoying the countryside, the downtime, and the clouds ‘n’ rain. You’d be surprised how tiresome constant sunshine can be in the desert SW, so we’re actually hoping for dreary weather. :)
If you check back here from time to time, I’ll be posting a few pics, but not much more.
I know the week will go quickly, but that’s no excuse not to go, right?
I wish you a wonderful weekend and the luck of the Irish.
