Fancy meeting you here!

Hello from across the world (I really never thought I'd be saying that!) 

Just wanted to let you know we are alive and still breathing....but just barely.

Okay, things are really not that bad at all.  So far so good and are we having adventures that I'll tell you about if you remember to ask me....

Anyway, after a grueling and sleepless 12 hour flight we arrived in Ireland 8 am Ireland time and 12 am US time. We hit the ground running/driving (on the LEFT side of the road AND right side of the car) and drove up North to Newgrange (sorry, tried to download pictures but they are SOO big and it is taking way too long!!)  From there we headed further up north and are working our way counterclockwise around Ireland.  We are learning traffic and culture as we go and feel like idiots most of the way (who knew you had to pay to use the toilet?!)

So far we've seen Belfast, the Giant's causeway, moto races, an abandoned manor in the middle of farmland, tons of old cemeteries, Underground caves with stalagmites and stalactites, Castle Coole, had tea with the owners of a B and B we stayed at, and we have a jam-packed day/week ahead of us! 

I hope to share pictures and some stories with you as we go and when we get back but I just wanted to drop in!

If you have the time check out some of the pictures on google maybe on your computers and follow us around Ireland!!!

Hope all of you are doing well and I'll check in later!
