    Good, clean, well-run, affordable and BIG.
    Lots and lots of people to the point where it was quite machine-like. I guess that's the price of success. Apparently is booked out all the time and it has A LOT of beds!

    I woke at about 7 and there was no going back to sleep. But at least I had a BRILLIANT sleep last night. It's not often you can say that with 3 drunk Aussies, 3 Asians and 1 girl of undetermined origin in the room. I sorted out my stuff and headed for a Dunkin Donut. I also had to buy my ticket for heading to Indiana tomorrow, so I had a Starbucks …

    My darling sister Laura offered to bring me to Dublin AND let me stay the night at her house AND she'd drive me to the airport in the morning. That's all instead of resorting to a middle of night lift to the 4am eireagle bus from Galway to Dublin, so you can already imagine how much I appreciated this.

We had a two hour stop over here before getting our connecting flight to Chicago. With lack of sleep, we were both a bit grumpy and the American culture of …

    Hi there from Chicago - home of The Cubs (baseball team), deep dish pizza and known as The Windy City.

    We farewelled Ryan, Kiley & Suzi in Des Moines, as we boarded our bus headed for Chicago. The 8hr journey with some colourful personalities made the time pass quickly.

    Once we arrived in Chicago it seemed like the bus port …

    I'm leaving on a jet plane....

    The delicate tendrils of slumber weave their intoxicating spell around my mind, and my spirit floats into the world of hypnagognia, only to be severely interrupted by the dream-shattering tones of the alarm clock. 4:00 a.m. came entirely too quickly. Bed was too comfy. Hubby was too warm. Sigh.

    I'm embarrassed to say how many pairs of ...
