Seeing Liverpool and arriving in Ireland 

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. 

On our way to Liverpool, we stopped by Shakespeare’s birthplace and had lunch. It was a cool town with lots of cool restaurants and shops. 

This is also where I had my official first fish and chips in England. 

We then all hopped back on the bus to get to Liverpool. Liverpool is well known as the birthplace of The Beatles. We actually went down to where they used to play which was really awesome. 

Well also rode Liverpool’s Ferris wheel, which is similar to the London Eye but much smaller. The views were amazing! 

After exploring for a bit, we headed back the the hotel to go to sleep. We had to be down at breakfast at 5 AM the next morning. Way too early.

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. 

The ferrie boat was more like a cruise ship. It was so big! It was my favorite mode of transportation on this trip by far. 

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. 

We eventually caught up with the group, finding some others in our group who had fallen behind as well. 

Matt was so sad we got lost that he bought us icecream. It was a great end to the day. 

Tomorrow we will be exploring Dublin! Can’t wait.
