Made it to Birmingham, but the last part of the trip was a horror. More later when I've had some sleep.
Drinking a Rail: a British beer smoked like a German raushbeer.
InTolkien 2019 banquet is getting started.
Corrections to the previous toots remove in before Tolkien. Rail is Rauk.
A rouge's gallery of Tolkien illustrators. Note Alan Lee on the end.
Trip back from Burlington to Manchester airport was much easier than the trip down; aside from a moment of panic when I couldn't find the rental car keys at the carpark. (The were in my suitcase.) Now on my flight to Dublin.
Someone on my flight received a very bad news phone call right before boarding. It's difficult to see anyone in such distress and know there is nothing you can do to help. Worse to be them though.
Stopped for curry cheese fries at Barack Obama Plaza on the road to Limerick. The way you do.
Smithwicks Red and Irish Lamb Stew for dinner.
When you buy something on impulse, but have no idea how you are going to get it home.
Some random pictures of Ireland.
More random pictures of Ireland.
Just woke up from the best sleep I've had since I left home. So of course I feel like crap.
I'm in Galway after driving around the Ring of Kerry. Sorry, no pictures yet because I can't connect my phone to the B&B WiFi. Maybe tomorrow?
In any case I was under the impression Galway is a walkable city, but that is definitely not true. Also, I spent most of my time since getting here fixing my luggage, which broke on me two days ago.
I'm in Dublin at the Clayton Hotel bar waiting for my room to be ready. Any of my mutuals nearby?
