One of the primary reasons I'm blogging about this trip is I never … Continue reading Middle Aged World Travelers, Day Tour to Cork, Blarney Castle, and Cobh, Chapter 4, Part 2
This is a poem I had posted on another blog I have. I posted it several years ago and just saw it again.

After we left the Cliffs of Moher, we continued to follow the western coast of Ireland in a … Continue reading Middle-Aged World Travelers, Cliffs of Moher-One Day Bus Tour, Chapter 3, Part 2

Here is the quote: "Our hands are really servants of our thoughts, so if you want to understand what you're thinking, watch what your hands are … Continue reading What Are Your Hands Doing?
Tuesday, May 19, 2015, 6:50 AM We were told to meet our tour guide in the middle of Dublin at the Old Stone Church on Suffolk Street. When we arrived, we realized that there were several tours starting from there and heard a man shouting, "Cliffs of Doher Day Tour, follow me this way please!" … Continue reading Middle-Aged World Travelers, Chapter 3, Cliffs of Moher, One Day Bus Tour, Part 1
When Alan and left our hotel to go to Trinity College and visit the downtown area, we were both a little apprehensive about such things as getting lost in the big old city, pickpockets, thieves, and also knowing where we were to go the next morning to meet our bus tour group for the Cliffs … Continue reading Middle Aged World Travelers-Chapter Two Continued
