Killarney: DAY 6 – All Good Things

Today’s Theme: ‘All Good Things…’ My last day. So soon? I woke this morning feeling fairly relaxed but just the tiny bit anxious about how the St Patrick’s Day festivities might impede on my travel plans. I ate the last of my supplies (smoked salmon and cream cheese on a gluten free/wheat free bun) and hung out for much longer than necessary in the hostel. I’ve … Continue reading Killarney: DAY 6 – All Good Things

Killarney: DAY 4 – I Guess I’m a Loner; confirmed

I was not expecting the sky to be so clear today so I decided to grab at the chance to enjoy … Continue reading Killarney: DAY 2 – Fight Pain with More Pain

Killarney: DAY 1 – You Most Appreciate the Sun When it Teases You on a Cloudy Day

Theme of Today: ‘you most appreciate the sun when it teases you on a cloudy day’ I arrived last night with very little trouble (delayed buses and Ryanair flights are expected but at least they delayed in synchronisation). From the bus station it was a kilometre to the hostel where I walked in only to feel immediately like I’d joined one big family. I was invited … Continue reading Killarney: DAY 1 – You Most Appreciate the Sun When it Teases You on a Cloudy Day
