People in Hostels

... that by the time I reach Dublin, it will be even more.
I have spent my night with a giant cup of tea (there were no mugs so I used a jug…) and a collection of notes writing and writing. So I am technically up-to-date at my end.
Although, you haven’t read any of them so you still think I am in Derry. Sly girl Lisa. Sly.

Very short entry today, because I need to pack up my bag and we all know how long that is going to take!
