. We're not sure yet. Either way, tomorrow we'll be in Northern Ireland, at the Giant's Causeway then eventually to Belfast.
Yesterday we had an awesome day in Killarney. We rented bicycles and went on a 14-mile loop bike trail through Killarney National Park. (Katie from Ten Mercer, thank you so much for that suggestion- best bike trip ever!!) We saw the Irish countryside, an ancient abbey and graveyard, an old mansion, the gorgeous lake, nature, pastures, a huge waterfall, etc. It was such a cool day. Only one minor bike accident- involved me falling off when I was going up a steep hill. It's a long story... Only a few scratches though.
Okay well my time is up on the computer. Hope everyone is doing well! Love, Michelle
Michelle: We made it alive after hitchhiking to the Dingle Peninsula this morning! We split up two and two (Andre and Amanda, then me and Diane) and went from Killarney to Dingle. It was actually really crazy because we got picked up separately and Diane and I went through 2 different rides, to two random towns, to get to a little town where we needed a 3rd ride to get us all the way there because none of the people who picked us up were going the entire way to Dingle. While we were at that third stop, a van all of a sudden pulls up and guess who was inside- Andre and Amanda! It was such a weird coincidence that they happened to have gotten picked up originally by a guy that was going straight to Dingle and we happened to be on the side of the road at the exact time they were driving by. So then we all hopped in the van and got driven by two cool Irish guys to Dingle town. We are going on a tour of the Dingle Peninsula in a few minutes and decided to check our e-mails and update this blog until then. Later today we are hitchhiking up to Tralee where we may either stay in a hostel or start the long bus ride up to Northern Ireland
