Trip to Ireland – just a taste August 21, 2007

Filed under: Art,The Social Scene — Annaleis @ 11:51 am

Well guys, I’m back in good old London, home sweet home I guess.

I can now say that I’ve been around the UK and Ireland, but now’s not the time for me to be bombarding you with stories and photos, although I know you’re actually looking forward to all that.

Just a little background info – we went on a bus/backpackers tour around the Republic of Ireland and into Northern Ireland. Most people on the tour are going to organise themselves to put their photos onto a photobucket folder that has been created to us tourists to share our photos. Only a few people have managed to do this so far. Mine will get there eventually.

Phil and Lyn added this picture that just happened to have me in it. It was a memorial to all the Irish people who tried to flee the famine and ended up on ships to America and other such places. Many died during these journies, and few of those who made it to the other side survived the wait they endured while docked in their new country, unable to leave the ships while paperwork was sorted.

Thanks Phil and Lyn, I hope you don’t mind me pinching this pic.
