Well, we’re finally home. Our total journey went something like this:
Car from Cavan to Dublin Airport
Flight from Dublin Airport to London Heathrow (we couldn’t get a flight to Gatwick)
Drive to London Gatwick
Flight from London Gatwick to Cancun, Mexico
Flight back from Cancun, Mexico to London Gatwick (delayed 10 hours)
Miss flight back to Ireland and argue with unhelpful Ryanair about why I won’t pay £1000 to get on next flight.
*pause for hissy bout of hysteria*
Drive to English Grandma’s house in Hertfordshire
Stay there two days panicking about how to get home.
Get saved by wonderful friend who suggests sailrail.co.uk
Train to Milton Keynes, then Chester, then Holyhead
Ferry from Holyhead to Dublin Port
Taxi from Dublin Port to incredibly understanding Long Stay Car Park (who didn’t charge me extra).
But I’m back!
And oh, the wonderful things I have to show and tell.
For instance, we saw this:
And we ate this:
And we did this:
… saw lots of this:
And even shed a tear at this:
Much, much more to come. Once I’ve conquered the EU washing mountain and cleaned out the Nutties.
