2015 09 14 Ireland Monday No hot water at Gabriel House B&B and no sign of the plumber. Thought it was interesting the lass was in such a hurry to have us pay EUR 99 last night when all other places only collected payment next morning.

Today was a whirlwind. We started with 10 in the van at 7am (ugh-so early for us)! After some fun Edinburgh navigating, we found the airport and kicked Michele and her crew out for their return flight home. Southward driving, we crossed 3 countries in 5 hours. Trinity, Keegan and I got on a HUGE "ferry" (more like cruise liner) and Rich, Charlie, and Lucy drove to Leicester to drop off Lucy with her mother for a girls trip. After our ...
