I got off-track with my travel log. Good thing I journaled some each day or I would never be able to remember all the adventures we had or the wonderful things we saw each day of our trip to Europe in May.

We were staying at the Airport Hilton, which is misleading because we really … Continue reading Middle-Aged World Travelers, Dublin Exploring, Chapter 2
