... sup>, began with a delicious breakfast at the hotel (in which they served real, actual coffee!). From there, our group took a leisurely walk around the surrounding area, looking at shops, going through bookstores, and enjoying the beautiful summer weather.

Oisin's unemployed but that doesn't go down well and Mary being a speech and language therapist is an extremely difficult profession to explain so Mary is saying she's a teacher.

No pressure Oisin!
Until next ...
