It has been a LONG two days. We packed so much in that I fell asleep last night as soon as my head hit the pillow.
Yesterday we had to say good bye to London. I was sad to go, because there is just so much to do there. But I was excited to continue our journey. Our next stop was Liverpool.
My alarm woke me up at 4:45 and I was not ready to start my day. I was groggy, sleepdeprived, and in desperate need for coffee. We left the hotel at 5:30 to head to Hollyhead in Wales to take a ferrie boat across to Ireland.
It was cool getting to see Wales, even if it was just for an hour. We boarded the ferrie and headed towards Ireland.
They had resteraunts, sitting areas, places to sleep, an arcade, a cinema, and a little shop that had basically anything you could have needed.
Once we reached Ireland, we had to get our passports stamped and then head to the hotel to drop off our luggage.
Once we dropped off all of our luggage, we headed to Grendalough, Ireland for the day.
To say this place was beautiful is such an understatement. We went to see one of the lakes and stopped by the cemetery and old church ruins on our way. I love cemetaries, as weird as that sounds. Especially over here, there is so much history and beauty in them.
The lake was just as spectacular. But it did take us a bit to find. Kath and I stopped during the walk to the lake and took some more pictures and fell behind the group. We ended up walking up half of a mountain before realizing we went the wrong way. Luckily, we did get some good pictures so it was worth it.
Matt was so sad we got lost that he bought us icecream. It was a great end to the day.
