Well on the way!

I can't get used to using this netbook and keep erasing what I have typed. Gee I should maybe have an IPAD to eliminate that annoyance. I will try again to bring you up to date.

John set the alarm for 3:15 and we were at the airport by 5:30 for my 7:00 flight to Chicago. Not too many people there at such an early hour so going through Security was a breeze. There are some benefits of having a compulsive husband. After a nine hour layover, the flight was pretty uneventful, thankfully. I did manage to sleep some which helped somewhat in adjusting to the time change. We left Chicago at 7:00 pm St. Louis time and arrived in Dublin at 8:00 whitch would have been 2:00 am St. Louis time. We picked up the car and drove to Arvagh. That sounded much too simple. Let me elaborate. We picked up the car and a GPS but with the GPS I still managed to miss several correct turns off Round Abouts and got onto a toll road by mistake. A ninety minute trip turned into more like three hours with two brief stops. One for petrol and one stop at a petrol station to pay the toll fine. Your think you have it bad with $4:00 gas. We paid 65 euros to pay to fill the tank of a very small Nisan Versa. In US dollars that comes to $97.50. Hope it gets good gas mileage.
It is about 9 am on Friday morning here and we are ready to visit Derry Lane Church ( more about that later) and then off to Belfast, I think. All is well and we are safe.

  1. Great to hear that your adventure has started. We don't know how lucky we have it here in the US with gas prices - NZ is like Ireland. It costs a small fortune to drive your car. Glad to hear you have a working GPS. I am sure you will be an expert with it by the time you return. Look forward to hearing more from you. Take care and happy travels.
