I had what I call a productive lazy day today.
A day where I got my book, I got my lunch and I went and sat down at the festival and did not much for a long time.
It was nice to relax for a while, because I am moving on tomorrow and who knows what that will hold!

No apologies for having so much fun I don’t have the time nor energy to write! Soz, not soz!

We jumped on a bus from buncrana to Derry where we proceeded to miss the bus we were supposed to take ( because it didnt exist) and then take one at 2 am. From there we rode for 4 hours until we made it to Dublin at like 5:45 this morning. We checked in at 6:30, ate breakfast and ten around 7:30 went through customs.
