Phew, it’s nearing the end of August, and we have had such a busy few months! Although we haven’t been able to travel anywhere abroad, we have had quite a few visitors, and have shared some of the sights of Ireland with them instead! We have also made many new friends, which means that we have got more places to visit in the future!
My dear sister and family were able to visit us from the US! It had been about five years since their last visit, so it was sooo great to see them. They came up to Donegal for a week, and we took them on a tour of our beautiful beaches, we ate fresh seafood in Malin Head, picked and cooked mussels from the beach, went to see the Giant’s Causeway, the rope bridge, and much more! We even had the amazing and unusual occurrence of some warm weather and sunshine!! It was such a wonderful few days.. We are planning a longer trip to Georgia to see them as soon as we can, so we are keeping an eye open for great flight deals with companies like US Airways!
We also had fun with a family visiting Buncrana for to months, my cousin and his wife from Wales, and a big group of Germans from Augsburg! It has meant a lot of trips to the Giant’s Causeway and the rope bridge, but it is always fun! And I even managed to cross the bridge once :-/
Travelling abroad is such a wonderful experience, and hopefully we can visit some more countries in the near future, but travelling at home can be fun too!
