Cork, Ireland
Jun 08, 2002


Pros: nice sightseeing
Cons: none

Well this is going to be a short entry because I only have a couple minutes on this computer because I only had a little change in my pocket. We left Fort Lauderdale and headed to Baltimore to get some standby tickets to fly to Europe. The trip up there took about three days and we were lucky to be able to get onto a flight that night. So after a long five hours or so we landed in Reykjavik, Iceland. I would like to say that it was wonderful and interesting in Iceland but we were only in the airport for maybe a half hour before we boarded our connecting flight. Anyway, we landed in Glasgow, Scotland pretty early in the morning and proceeded to get lost in a town called Paisley. We then headed up to Irving, and then caught a ferry in Troon. We landed in Belfast, Northern Ireland and contrary to popular belief, nobody shot at us or tried to blow us up. Actually it is pretty quiet right about now. We did see the border towers between the two countries though and that was a bit eerie. So we hitched down towards Dublin but ended up in a small town that I don't know the name of. It was at the The Malt Pub that I got my first true Irish Guinness :) After this we wandered a bit ending up in Cork and now we are actually going to do some real sightseeing, might even kiss the Blarney Stone. Gotta Run
