5 Sleeps

Yes we are down to 5 sleeps to go… OMG… So it better be bag packing day today… I have been putting everything I want to take away on the spare bed downstairs… Yesterday I carried it all upstairs and laid it out on the spare bed upstairs… Now today I will label everything, photography stuff and pack all my bags… This means my suitcase for check-in luggage, my Pacsafe bag and my camera bag both for carry on luggage… Wish me luck on staying under weight limits with my carry on luggage with my camera gear…

1 Week to go…

Breath Breath Breath…

It still feels like I have so much to do…

I am all organised and have been for a while but its just the fine tuning of paperwork, packing of clothes and the cleaning and packing of camera gear…

Plus leaving everything organised here for the boys while I am away…

Dublin Hotel…

We arrive in Dublin from Holyhead via the ferry

Well we aren’t actually staying in a hotel for the Dublin leg of our trip we are actually staying in a 2 bedroom apartment for the last 5 nights of our trip… I thought by that stage my daughter and I might need some extra space and with having a kitchen we will be able to buy some food and do a little cooking and it also has a washing machine and dryer, so we will have clean clothes…

This isn’t confirmed but there doesn’t look to be any issues, I just need Diana from Travel Escapes to go over the details and confirm the booking, we will be staying at the Parnell Square Apartments which is just off O’Connell Street where the tour buses leave from and also the Airbus to the Dublin Airport for our return flights to Australia…

Liverpool Hotel…

With the Liverpool leg of our trip I actually had some help from Matthew Hart who is a photography friend living in Liverpool… Who I am meeting up with to do some photography, I love his images and he inspires me…

I was able to give him a list of hotels and he let me know which would suit our needs best… Thanks Matt…

So in Liverpool we are staying at The Liner which looks impressive and again is near the train station in readiness for a day trip to Edinburgh and to Holyhead for our ferry ride to Dublin
