Aug 14, 2014 - Link to photos of Ireland

Hiya, Since it is only possible to attach about ten photos to each blog entry I decided to create online albums where we will store all our photos of our travels. (There won't be enough space on the iPad anyway!) Below is the link to photos from the few weeks we spent in Ireland. https://picasaweb.google.com/107060324243321928504/Ireland?authkey=Gv1sRgCI__g7aQ6fH4Ug&noredirect=1 Right now we are in a town called Kuta in Bali where the shades of green are completely different to the multitudes of green in Ireland but just as beautiful. There...

Aug 13, 2014 - De retour au bercail

L'aventure irlandaise tire à sa fin ... Nous rentrons voir la famille de Sarah en banlieue de Dublin pour quelques jours avant de s'envoler pour Singapore. J'ai eu la chance d'assister à la Demi finale de Hurling au stade à Dublin, qui peut acceuillir 80 000 personnes, entre Limerick et Kilkenny, dont ces derniers sont considérés comme les Patriotes de la Nouvelle-Angleterre de ce sport puis qu'ils atteignent les finales année après année. Chaque joueur est équippé d'une crosse en bois et d'un casque protecteur seulement, même pour le...

Aug 11, 2011 - A Neolithic day

The fourth day was sent in the neolithic. Visited a center where there were several tomb complexes- Knowth and NewGrange - both built about 3000 BC. All had been restored to their original appearance. In NewGrange you could go in to the center of the complex and there was a demonstration of how on the winter solstice the sun would appear in the chamber. I entered a lottery as well - they let 20 people into the tomb on the five days around the solstice to witness the sun's appearance - that is, of course, if it's not cloudy... which it will...

Aug 10, 2011 - Countryside

On the third day some time in Kilkenny Castle and spent some more time in the town just wandering around, then headed out to Navan. We traveled some beautiful green countryside and, of course, got lost. Could not find the B&B again, so stopped in a pub and asked direction - the place was across the street... Later ate at the same pub - a small place in the countryside - and had a gourmet meal - with all the presentation of a fancy restaurant. Quite astounding. Discovered that an Irish salad includes a big glob of slaw and very few leafy...

Jul 4, 2007 - Independance Day!

Today started at the Newgrange Lodge with a busy agenda! We are down to the wire now and there is still 1/4 of a country to see! So this was the first morning that I made Maren get up early and get a move on! It was hard at first as she is "Soooooooooooooooo tired mommy!" Tara Hill opens at 10:00 and my intention is to have breakfast at the hostel and then make it there for the opening. Tara Hill is a hill on the side of the Boyne Valley. It really does not seem like much other than a bunch of interesting mounds on the hillside. But when...
