Two Days In Ireland

So I spent Saturday and Sunday in Ireland, headed back for Lori’s 20th birthday celebrations. Here’s a rundown…


04:45 Awaken and rise.
05:30 Have banter with taxi driver on way to airport.
06:40 Board flight (not having been asked for ID once, I’d like to add!).
07:00 Flight takes off.
07:22 Land Belfast International Airport.
08:10 Ahoghill: Step out of the jeep at my house.
Pretty much worth the early rise for this beautiful sight that greeted me (click to enlage):

Sunrise Welcome

10:00 Ballymoney: Catch up with the Loughridge family. These guys are amazing!
12:30 Ground, Coleraine: Coffee with Leanne. Immense.
Leanne just got back from 3 weeks at Levi’s in Latvia.
Gina came in while we were there, so also got a quick chat with her.
15:00 Ahoghill: Picked up by Lori
15:30 Ground, Ballymena: Coffee and shopping with the (almost) birthday girl.
17:30 Ahoghill: Chill out at Lori’s before meal.
I got handed a laptop and the TV remote while she got ready.
More teasing of me being ‘female-Connor’.
19:00 U-Tree, Ahoghill: Dinner with friends from school.



Lori & Lee

Post-meal: More banter including visiting appartments, going for drives, watching TV and eating chocolate.


10:30 Antrim: Meet Jill. Wonderful walk on a beautiful morning.

14:30 Antrim: Meet Claire. Drive to Belfast. Coffee and lunch. Wonderful.
16:30 Belfast: Arrive at Belfast Harbour to get boat.
22:20 Arrive Glasgow Central.
22:40 Arrive home at flat.


I had an incredible two days back in Ireland. I got to spend some time with a few of the people who have had a huge impact on me (in the past and continuing), and I feel so blessed for it. There’s a few more pictures on flickr. Here’s to many more (continuing) deep friendships.
