Going home via Dublin, Belfast, and Chicago’s Cloud Gate

It’s so good to be home. My Ireland adventure is over now, and I’m excited to share my stories. Here’s an overview of my last week in Dublin!

An Irish prison, an English Market, a medieval overnight, and a secret speakeasy

Hello, fellow wanderers! My goodness, what a crazy week it’s been. It’s hard to believe it was only a few days ago when I last wrote a blog post update from Ireland. So much has happened, it feels like at least two weeks have passed! I’m going to do my best to nutshell the last […]

Safely home again … but not for too long!

It’s so cliched, but there really is no place like home. We arrived safely late Tuesday night. I could have posted in the interim, but I was afraid I was going to let our big surprise slip! The Nomad came home with us! It’s a really long Only-God kind of story, and I won’t go […]

Fake Baker Street 187 N Gower

Fake Baker Street and the coolest street market ever

So yesterday was crazy and I didn’t get a post up. We got The Ginger off to meet her flight early. It’s kind of strange how you get the airport in London. You actually take the tube. The Piccadilly Line goes straight into Heathrow. But once we saw her off, we went back to the […]

Famous sunflowers, river boats, beefeaters, and gelato

Well, if you thought yesterday was crazy, today will wear you out. I don’t know how many miles we did around London, but we’re all exhausted. It was a 12-hour day for us. The Nomad made sandwiches again, and we loaded my backpack down. Then we all took off for Trafalgar Square. The passage in the […]

Clock towers, churches, underground bunkers, and palaces

Yesterday was beautiful. Today was freezing! It rained pretty much all day long, and if it got to 50 I’ll be surprised. But we went out and saw the sights regardless! Even when we were soaked to the bone from the rain and could see our breath, we still kept going! It started with an […]

Paying for potty stops, 007’s garage, and dodging traffic on Abbey Road

We are coming off our first day in London, and man are my feet tired! We covered a lot of ground in a few hours.The train ride into London from Carlisle was uneventful, which was nice. It gave The Nomad and me and chance to look over some parts of the newest Crosshair Press novel […]

A Scottish breakfast and Indian take-away

So we spent much of today recovering from yesterday and driving back to Carlisle in Pierre the Peugeot. We at a late breakfast/early lunch at The Golden Larches, the little family diner near our cabin. That place is wonderful. If you’re ever in Balquhidder, stop by the Golden Larches. Have a steak pie and a […]
