Hello to all: Bottom line, Ireland was amazing. We came home last Tuesday to POURING rain in Denver and it continued to rain for 7 days straight! We had the best weather in Ireland (rained only 2 days out of 10!) and to come home to a downpour (in a city that is usually perpetually sunny) was very odd.
So, it's been a busy week dealing with the flooding in CO (my work is connected-thankfully, my home was not affected) while playing catch up at work. But we have a wedding to drive out to this weekend and it's a good 5.5 hour drive, so I am going to bring my computer and type up the trip report during the ride.
Initial thanks for all the comments, destination expert advice and interesting posts to help make this a trip of a lifetime! I will post the report sometime this weekend.
