We’re in Dublin, Ireland. Got blaggs for a concert featuring Underworld and Basement Jaxx here tomorrow night in a park 5 mins walk from Eirene’s dads house. Should be ace.
Had a great couple of weeks touring Wales in the van. Lots of driving (and listening to test match special) Started out in Snowdonia. Spent a few days in a top spot called Shell Island before trucking south to Pembrokeshire via the Centre for Alternative Technology. Hung out at Newgale for a few days – a superb surfers paradise of a beach (although the surf wasn’t that great when we were there). Really unspoiled massive beach. Had some good kite action and beachlife was all to easy to get used to. Reading lots, chilling and playing lots.
From there we went to Tenby (last blog) and round the Gower Peninsular before heading towards Brecon and the place voted “Britain’s finest natural wonder 2005” – the Dan-Y-Ogof caves. Spectacular cave systems with a dinosaur park, iron age park, loads of stuff for the kids and a top camp site. Met some Danes, endured the 4-1 footy defete and smug Denmark family.
After there we hurtled up to Hollyhead and got the HSS super fast ferry to Dublin and here we are now. Just eaten an Irish Breakfast sans Guinness. (same as an English breakfast but with the addition of white pudding).. well – may try and get a few photos up later.
