    ... is on hold indefinitely; we both have colds and sound like toads, the wine glass supply to hold the fuel to boost our performance is limited, and the guys have threatened to throw us off the balcony should we try it. So my creative talents are now centered around doing laundry.
    We have a machine similar to the one we had in London, which is a combo washer/dryer rolled into one. You would think it would be efficient but I find it a pain. It takes 3 hrs for it ...

    ... our 50 minute flight to Dublin from Edinburgh. We arrived just after 9am in Dublin and just in time to catch a bus to our first destination, Kilkenny. This bus ride had to be one of the worst ones we had endured (and we have been on A LOT of buses). The roads were quite windy and coupled with an extremely bad driver it did not go well.

    ... the crashing waves hundreds of feet below. A few years ago The Cliffs of Moher had featured in a sequence from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and it's easy to see why; tall and forbidding they are great symbols of primordial, fantastical European landscapes. Out to sea beyond them lie the Aran Islands, the western most part of the continent and heartland of the native Irish speakers. It's a beautiful sight.
