The Plan for this Blog

Well, for those of you who are visiting this blog in hopes of following me on my trip to Ireland... WELCOME!!! I am really hoping that I will be able to update this blog on a regular basis from the Emerald Isle but that will all be dependent on me finding the time and affordable internet access while I am over there. I will not likely be posting pictures until I get back but I am truly hoping that they will be worth the wait. For those of you who don't know much about my trip, well, let me fill you in on the details. I am travelling on a coach tour with Trafalgar Tours. I am going over there alone but will meet up with a group of people who I will travel the Republic of Ireland with. I don't know who they are, how many there will be or where they are from. Chances are most of them will be a bit older than me (40-60ish), and many of them will probably be from countries other than the US. I do know that they will all be English speaking as the tours are all conducted in English. I am actually looking forward to meeting new people from all over the world. We will only be travelling in the Republic of Ireland (not Northern Ireland), starting the journey in Dublin. I will arrive in Dublin on Sunday morning October 5th after an overnight flight with a layover in Chicago. I will hit the bricks right away to hopefully fight off the inevitable jet-lag as much as possible. We will have a city sightseeing tour around Dublin later that afternoon as well as a gathering with the group that evening. Starting the next day, and over the next 5 days, we will travel to Kildare, Kilkenny, Waterford, Youghal, Cork, Blarney (yes that is where you kiss the Blarney Stone), Macroom, Kenmare, the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty, Limerick, Ennis, Galway and back to Dublin. If I am unable to post on a regular basis, I will update my blog when I return with entries from my travel journal as well as the many photos I am sure I will be taking. So for those of you who are interested, come along and join me as I Daydream my way through Ireland!!!
