Getting Closer

It is now less than 5 months until we leave for our trip to the UK.

I just reviewed my list at the bottom of my previous post and note that we have really not done anything else concrete towards the trip.

I have been reading a terrific guide book for Ireland on my Kindle.  It is called “Rick Steves’ Ireland” and I feel as though we are starting to really get a feel for what we want to see.  I get the feeling that although Ireland is quite small, especially compared to the distances we are used to in Australia, it punches well above its weight when it comes to things to see and do.  We have decided that we will probably spend a couple of nights in Dublin at the end of our 7-8 days in Ireland rather than at the beginning.

We have also changed our accommodation in Edinburgh because our initial booking was cancelled due to a personal tragedy for the host.  It is a shame but we are very happy with the new place we have found through AirBnB.  It is close to Holyrood Palace and convenient for getting to most locations.
