Planning My Trip

I have less then a month before my big 32 day vacation to Ireland and the UK and I'm starting to freak out a bit. Today I started planning out where I'm going to be and who I will be staying with while I'm there. Ireland is pretty much set as I'll be staying with my buddy Thomas. Also my bff Robert will be joining me for this leg of the journey. We plan to travel around Ireland for a week checking out the sites.

Robert will then head to England for a week while I stay in Ireland a few more days and hang with Thomas. I then will travel to Scotland and do a day in Glasgow before heading over to Edinburgh for a few days of site seeing. I don't have anyone to stay with up there so it looks like I'll be staying in hostels.

Now this is where the trip gets a bit crazy and I haven't quite worked out all the details yet. I have several friends offering up a place to stay (which I was relying on). I started with six friends offering me to stay with them but due to various reasons I'm down to three, possible two friends only. It puts a kink in my plans as I was hoping to save some money by crashing at friends places but I can't let it damper my excitement for this trip.

If there is anyone who followers my blog and you happen to live in Ireland or the UK and what to hang out let me know. I'll be doing the UK pretty much solo and can always use the company.

In other news my buddy Sean Becker came over so I could interview him for My Gimpy Life Season Two which premiered on Monday. With his interviews done I can now edit together some CompanionCasts for this season.. look for those soon.

During the evening I went over to my buddy Robert's place for TV night. We are continuing our Babylon 5 "first time viewing". Tonight we start season four. We got through Episodes 1, 2, 3 and 4 tonight. My review of the episodes will follow in my next blog post.

  1. It's funny. I have some other friends watching Babylon 5 for the first time. Maybe I should join the bandwagon soon. I'm sure all your plans will come together. Don't stress too much or it will take away from the fun. Just roll with what happens and enjoy the experience :)
