We made it!

After an epic trip we are in Doolin! Had dinner and Guinness at Gus O’Connor’s, my favorite pub while a group of musicians played trad music. Here’s some pics of us.

The trip was the longest to Ireland I’ve ever experienced. Our flight from Seattle to JFK got there an hour early, and we already had a 6 hour layover. Then they delayed the flight an hour because the runway was jammed up. So we spent 8 hours in the airport. THEN they held the plane on the runway for another hour, and announced they were going to have to fly over Greenland to avoid the volcano, adding ANOTHER two hours to the trip! Ugh!

At least the plane wasn’t totally full, so we had three seats between us. I mean, total. 🙂

OK, gonna go crash now. Tomorrow: The Cliffs of Moher and the Burren.

Mmmm! Creamy goodness!

Chris learned the Irish word for "Cheers" today: "Slainte!" (slange-ah) He plans to use it often.

New York, New York

Not much to report yet – waiting in JFK for flight to Shannon. Not much to do here – why don’t they have a hydro massage or better shopping?? Played with the spendy toys in Brookstone for a while. 🙂

So far the ash is behaving and leaving a hole for us to fly into Ireland. Fingers crossed, we should be there by 2 a.m. Saturday P.A. time., 10 a.m. Sunday there.
