We were due to be collected this morning at 8.30am but the minivan was a little late as the - acknowledged- message did not get through to our guides. No matter! We were in the van and on our way by 9.30. After thinking that it would just be Seamus and me,I was a little surprised to find that there are in fact 6 others on this trip. However, the others are lovely and will make excellent companions for the next two weeks. Our first proper stop was ...
