Ireland - first and foremost, check out:

We're back, and I'm still processing the whole amazing trip. So I've brought a few photos back to whet your whistle - of a few not-to-miss places if you're Ireland-bound.

Topics that may come up in the next half-dozen or so posts include:

  • The tot's take on our helpful GPS navigator (and the fact that she's now "navigating" us everywhere in the car, with a British accent).

  • Really good eating on a tight budget.

  • The Ring of Beara - a quieter alternative to the Ring of Kerry, and easier on the kid.

  • The Blur of Kells and how not to visit Dublin.

  • The Newgrange megolithic passage tomb.  (30,000 people register annually for one of 15 spots inside during the solstice - and it IS really that cool.)
  • Flying with Fools (or, my toddler behaves better than your twenty-something).

  • And… how friends make the world go round.
