To be honest, mostly what we did was play “uno” but that’s not so bad, right?
We all had a blast. We also had a great time touring Guinness, the Aran islands and the cliffs of Moher.
We spent most of our time in Galway where we were shocked to be speaking French 50% of the time! Evidently a lot of French people vacation here. We were surprised to use so much French on our anglophone vacation but most of the people in the tourist areas were French speaking. Pretty cool for us!
We heard great music, saw great dancing and loved every bit of what Galway had to offer. A funny thing happened when we were at a playground with the kids. We struck up a conversation with a couple and found we had mutual friends in Michigan. Crazy, right? It’s a small world! Hello, Lesly!
After that we headed to Blarney where, yes, we kissed the Blarney Stone. At the time of writing this post we are 3 weeks out and we don’t show signs of any crazy diseases so I think we’re ok! I was hoping the “gift of gab” it’s supposed to bestow on the kisser would be an ad an advance in French. Not so, but that’s ok.
After that we went on to Waterford, Limerick and Cork.
It’s funny because “Star Wars ” is so secretive that they don’t keep any evidence of their visit. The only reason these places still exist is that they’re real ancient Druid settlements from before Christ.
We also went on a dolphin tour and I could help but include this pic of Esther.
