    Flughafen Dublin

    July 23, 2017 in Ireland

    Nach einer einstündigen Zugfahrt nach Nürnberg sind wir weiter mit dem Zug nach München. Von dort ging es dann mit einer fast zweistündigen Verspätung in den Flieger nach Dublin. Nach dem Abendessen ging es nochmal kurz in die Temple Bay Street, in welcher, trotz dass es Sonntag Abend war, noch sehr viel los war mit vielen Straßenkünstlern und Musik in den Pubs.

    Departure Day

    October 28, 2017 in Ireland

    After running a personal best, again, at Cabinteely park run - and celebrating MTC's daughter's 50th park run, we set off for the airport. The plan was to keep my promise not to eat at Burger King again, by going to Esquires in Swords. We'd had a delicious breakfast there a few weeks earlier after the River Valley park run. It didn't disappoint on the return visit. Full Irish, non-vegetarian version each plus a good cup of coffee. The airport long term car park is about 6 minutes from the restaurant.
    Smooth through security, time wise. Until I discovered that my jacket was missing, plus my shoulder bag (there is no other way of describing it), which was with it. It had been selected for an extra check. An apple seems to have been the offending article. The security were double-checking a lot of stuff. The queues for security were short. So they probably decided it was a good time to up the rechecks.
    Flight was full. Loaded early. Priority boarding. Arrived before the scheduled time. Caught the bus to Bergamo station, with about a 3 minute wait. Some fooster with the ticket machine. Got assistance from a fellow traveller. Mercure hotel is 5 minutes from the station. Registration in almost complete silence, the way I like my haircuts. Room is fine. Decent AC. Big bathroom , 8/10 for cleanliness. Photos are Milan or Turin

  • Day39

    Ely/Birmingham/Dublin

    August 9 in Ireland

    Most of the last couple of days have been travelling and waiting to travel. Neither the train or air employees are very accommodating in England. Little bit more friendly in Ireland where I will meet Sharon in the morning. Yippee, then we start a new adventure (yes, looking for dead people) as John puts it. More family research. Met and befriended 8 young lads on the plane coming to Ireland for a ‘stag couple days’, god knows what they will look like when they arrive home!!! No photos until tomorrow. Don’t think you want to see train stations or airports.Read more

  • Day40

    Dublin

    August 10 in Ireland

    Of course I didn’t meet Sharon this morning, she arrives tomorrow morning, must have been those grumpy poms I was focused on. Spent the day in the middle of the city, very busy and the main part very dirty. Lots of building along the water way and will be great when finished. Rained and was cold, I had to buy a rain jacket, no doubt it will come in handy for the rest of the trip!!! Looking forward to getting out into the country.Read more
