Flashback: In late May, I flew into Dublin (from Italy) and spent the night in the airport. In the food court I found some really cozy chairs that you could turn to face eachother – thus creating a comfortable sort of tub for myself and my bags – and slept well until about 4:30am, when the cafe opened.
Then I met up with a friend from New York to join him on his whirlwind tour of the west coast. We drove across Northern Ireland, spent one night in Donegal (including a visit to Slieve League; see photos), one in Westport, and the next day hit not only Inis Mor but also Galway. Whew! Great fun, but after all my walking the scenery seemed to whir by awfully fast!
