    On the way to Wales

    July 31, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Done ferry crossing. Into Wales landing at Holyhead. Lovely ferry, the Ulysses. Played Pokies trying to get rid of change. Debbie, Seriously and I tried very hard to get rid of €2 and ended up with €5. Had lots of laughs though!

    Irish sea gave us a a very gentle crossing. Holyhead has been in use since 17 hundreds. Photo of memorial for merchant seamen who have died on board ships. The Edinburgh Castle was one of first pub seen!

    About 3 million people live in Wales. Of these about 1 third speak Welsh as a first language.
