Travel Blogs from Enniskillen
So this morning I flopped out my my tent.
I spent another hour sleeping with my feet in the tent and my upper body across the grass.
If anyone looked it would have looked like I'd passed out. But it was so hot!
I packed up my tent and went on my merry way, via hitchhiking the 5 minute drive into town to a cafe.
I was off to Dublin today, but silly little Lisa hadn't learnt her lesson.
The whole, don't put ticket as ...
... talking and he was from Dooblin. That's where he said he was from anyway. I think he meant Dublin but yeah.
But I won't be mean about the accent...it's pretty. Irish accents are. Some of them.
He was genuinely so so nice, and easy to talk to. And so quick at getting up on a board!
I got jealous ha.
And I would have said he was quite cute too, but ...
... in to town to get mine in the hope that I would be in before they got out
It was very similar to my board at home. Also got a very think wetsuit, which is good in the water but impossible to get on. And a pair of booties.
I must have looked like a right dag carrying a board on my head from the center of town to Tullen Strand.
But where I was camped was worth it.
... that by the time I reach Dublin, it will be even more.
I have spent my night with a giant cup of tea (there were no mugs so I used a jug…) and a collection of notes writing and writing. So I am technically up-to-date at my end.
Although, you haven’t read any of them so you still think I am in Derry. Sly girl Lisa. Sly.
Actually, given there are about 6 entries before this one, you would know exactly where I am.
Lisa xo ...
... it was fun before that ride.
That ride changed me.
I had a bit of help getting going because I didn’t know how to judge this type of break, but once I was up.
Once I was up, I understood why people love surfing.
I won’t ever forget how free and on-top-of-the-world I felt standing up and looking out at nothing but blue shiny, unbroken water. Water that hadn’t been touched by the power of the wave yet.
It was like gliding on glass! ...
