Thanks for the comment Jillian.
I will see if we are going to be near there at all.
I'm also hoping to hit up some non touristy places along with the touristy places, so if you have any grand ideas I'm all ears! (well eyes in this case) :-P
I think it would be lovely to be able to just hop short spaces between Ireland and UK! Getting to the UK is a total life consuming experience for us Aussies to organise! Tho' hopefully and with the help of my ancestral visa I can get back there again soon!
