We had talked about going to Northern Ireland for the Ulster GP earlier in the week but had made no bookings. Greg however had done a bit more research and we decided to catch a ferry from Cairnryan to Belfast at 3:30pm on Friday 7th. As it was already 10am and we had about 80km to ride to the ferry, we packed our gear and loaded up the bike. We left the house about noon.

... tasteful visitor center we were off on our 3km hike along the bluffs and down to the prime attraction the collection of hexagon shaped columns. Walking up on the bluffs we were greeted with partly sunny skies and 60 mile per hour gusts!

After the Ulster Museum, Kara and I headed off to the Victoria Square Shopping Center which has ...
Thursday 8th of August 2013 - Edinburgh to Glasgow, Scotland One of my favourite things about this tour is the drives are not long, there are none of these 12 hour days unlike Norway. We left Edinburgh in the morning and arrived in Glasgow around midday. My first opinion of Glasgow is 'small town'. Which is rather amusing because it is Scotland's largest city, it really did not feel anywhere near as big as Edinburgh did. As we arrived too early to check in, why not check out ...
