Ready, Set...

Scott and I have both been working hard these past few months and decided it was time for a vacation. So, on May 20th, we are heading here for two weeks:




Any guesses? No?! Well, maybe this will help:



I am so excited, you have no idea! We really wanted to go while in college, but lets face it, we couldn't afford it. So, for two weeks, we'll be exploring Ireland by car, bike and foot. Oh, and, look at all the sheep (aka. yarn)!

I went to college in Ireland and met my irish now-spouse there.....we try to drag the kids back every year.

My fave place to visit is NEWGRANGE which has a buge interpretive center near it and is amazing, it predates stonehenge. You used to be able to go inside the actual monument (not anymore) but the attached center is excellent.

Another place you might miss that I loved was St. Michan's Church in Dublin. We went a few years ago and toured the crypts under the church--the guide made us touch the mummies for luck! I touched a knight who had fought in the crusades!

Of course, I have not seen everything and it is your trip. Donegal is lovely and Northern Ireland is very friendly. Enjoy!!!!!!

Have a wonderful time. Played some soccer, kissed the Blarney Stone, drank a bit of Guinness and generally had a ball. I'm looking forward to going back someday.

While in Ireland in October I met a lovely couple who hijacked us for a weekend and showed us their hospitality in rural Galway. She called the sheep "wooly jumpers" (as in sweaters). I often think of them that way now.

Oh, Ireland! Well, you'll find out yourself all its wonders, but I must mention my daughter's favorite spot in the entire world (and if you saw her passport...): Roundwood House in County Laois. Check out Hidden Ireland in your planning. They have agreat website.

BTW, the same daughter, 9 y.o., has worn out her griffindor socks. I'm not kidding. She wore them for days on end, from the day the came of the needles until she wore right through the toe. Lucky I have enough yarn to re-knit them!

Have a fanatastic time--I'm jealous! But be warned: driving in Ireland is not like driving in the US. My husband and I went a few years ago (before I seriously began my fiber habit) and thought "oh, Galway to Dublin? It's only about 200 miles--no sweat. We'll be there for lunch." Except we didn't realize that the roads are super narrow, bordered by high hedges, and you inevitably end up behind a very, very, very slow truck with a huge load of hay . . .

Having said that, we still had a grand time. If you do hit Dublin, take the Guiness tour and try out a literary pub crawl. And Dingle rocks--very steep cliffs with sheep just hangin' out on them. :)

You're making me so homesick, especially with the pictures, I'm Irish born and bred, living in the USA now, all my family is still there in Waterford. No matter where you go you'll love it, the history, scenery and the people. Enjoy. Have a Harp (instead of Guiness) for me.
