Hi Everyone, sorry it has been a while but I have been able to travel about this past week or so. I got to see London for the first time. It was beautiful especially with the snowfall, we toured the Tower of London where the Crown Jewels are held, pretty impressive pieces I must say! Joe and I also got to see Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, St. Ann’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace & the changing of the guards, the London eye, and the HMS Belfast, but I have to say one of my favorite parts of the London trip was when we went to see Wicked! It was unbelievable, those actors are so talented.
With all the snow the England airports started to freak out, they can’t handle snow like Boston can, but we got out of Gatwick no problem and on to Belfast we went, spent our days in Belfast going to see the Titanic museum which was very impressive, we then looked at the weather to see what day it would rain the least and went up to the Giants Causeway! Joe could not believe the natural formation of the rocks, we had a great day up the North Coast. Last but not least Gareth so kindly drove us around Belfast showing us the murals around the city giving Joe and I a wee history lesson of Belfast I think it was Joe’s favorite part of the trip. I also had to bring Joe to get a fry, just so he got the full Belfast experience!
After a couple days in Belfast we were off to Dublin spending some time walking around the city, it has such a great vibe about it, just relaxed and so friendly, we went to the Jameson Distillery, St. Patricks Cathedral, and stumbled upon a farmers market where folks were making brass pots, cheese, bread, even their own alcohol! There were also tons of animals just walking around such as donkeys, chickens, turkeys, mini horses just walking around so casually! I couldn’t believe it considering we were in the middle of a big city!
Needless to say it was a great trip! Now back to work, school started this week, we have 7 courses this semester, so going to be hitting the books hard and we have games all of February. I cant wait to get back on the court.
Thanks for reading!
