Here in Belfast Christmas spirit has been in the air since back near Thanksgiving. But it finally feels real! My mom and brother arrive in Belfast this Saturday morning! I can’t wait to show them Belfast for myself and then take a wee trip to Vienna, Austria where we will spend Christmas together.
As I was planning our days in Belfast I asked all of my friends, teammates and SCL family for some ideas of what to do. Luckily the Christmas Market’s last day open is the day my Mom and brother arrive! So we will be spending some festive time at the market trying some delicious food. I think I may trick my brother into trying the Kangaroo burger!!
Then I want them to see the titanic quarter and we may also take a trip to the peace wall. I also got a recommendation to go to Crumlin Road Gaol and a few classic Irish restaurants! I have experiences Belfast in my own way as a long term resident but look forward to being an extreme tourist with my family this weekend in the spirit of Christmas! Stay tuned for a blog on my wee trip and Christmas spent in Vienna.
