After a day of dodging cars in our little rental, and driving about 500 km, Signe and I became lost in Dublin.  Actually, we knew where we were, but had little idea of how to get where we wanted to be.   In any case, we were in an alley between a surgical college, and a large, famous hotel heading the wrong way.  I decided to back-up, but the manual tranmission became frozen.  Totally stuck, couldn't be moved. 




Arrived in Dublin about 8:00 am. Took a nap in our apartment for a couple of hours and hit the streets. With traffic driving on the left-side, jaywalking, I soon discovered, can be very tricky!

On our first full day of seeing the sights, we went to the National Museum, and spent several hours looking at the ancient, acheological history of man's-inhumanity-to-man Irish-style. Pretty awesome! Lots of skeletons of chaps who'd had their skulls caved-in by swords, rocks, spears, and (my personal favorite),maces! Then we had a nice dinner.

On the Road


Aspen, CO
United States

We vagabonds have traveled considerable miles and stayed in three homes of family and dear friends since my last post. Lucky Lisa was in Maine when we descended on her Denver home. Our sincere thanks to Lisa's husband,Glenn, for so graciously sharing their and home and putting up with all our stuff that we kept in the living room. By the time we left, we were down to 2 boxes of food, 2 suitcases, one basket of dirty clothes, an ice chest full of cold food, a small box of books, several electronic items, and the vexing storage basket full of toiletries.

The adventure begins


Sharon's House Wash Park West 80209
United States

Lesson # one, and we haven't even left the USA: We have w-a-a-y too much stuff. Our tenants moved into our High Street home on Sunday and we've moved to Sharon's house, across Wash Park, a mere half mile as the crow flies. We've brought our 150 pounds of Europe-bound luggage to Mac's brother's house to stow until we can re-group and re-check. I'm a pretty good packer, but this is a daunting task. We need clothing for 3 seasons and want to bring a minimum of things.
