Basic room at reasonable rate right in the heart of old downtown. The room was well lite, clean, and just what most people on a budget look for. Coming from drought stricken California I had to laugh at the toilets which seems to use about 12 gallon for every flush! Great breakfast! We had the Irish breakfast with Waterford bacon, Roscrea sausage, egg, grilled tomato, mushrooms, and black pudding, set in great room with deer heads and hunting pictures. The building is over 200 hundred years old and it was quite a long walk back to our room up and down stairs through various doors, it was almost comical (woman's view - I found it charming). We have thank Rick Steves for the recommendation.

We did indeed feel special.
After a lovely stay in Kilkenny we wet off next ...

We are renting with Alamo which here in Ireland is linked with Europecar. The rental process takes forever! I had checked with my credit card to ensure that I would be covered if I used the CDW. The company sent me a letter, but it did not specially name the Republic of Ireland so we end up calling the customer center. Then they offer an upgrade. ...

How did I get a Vietnam Visa – well there is the question, all you do is go online send them your passport details, send them some money et voila. This is VERY different to an explanation I gave to Fiona a couple of months back. We had a conversation on the beach while camping which went a little something like this (I was rather inebriated):
Fiona – ‘Do we need a visa for Vietnam?’
Me – ...
