May 4, day 3 of our trip. The Guinness Storehouse where we learned how to (I do poorly) pour a Guinness. We are certified by Guinness to pour a draft. I accidentally did manage to leave those documents in the Castle Hotel in Dublin.

Thursday 6.8.17

We recently took a trip to the UK. Ireland, England & Scotland. Since coming home, I’ve been trying to process exactly what we did and when we did it. I did keep fairly accurate video and photographic records which help me to place where we were each day. It was 23 days of seeing things, meeting people and not knowing what was going on at home.

I also did not drive for 23 days. I offered after the first week but was told not to worry about it. It took me most of a week to feel normal on the left side of the road and the left side of the car as a passenger. I would often find myself positioning my feet to brake, even though I had no brake.

Here’s a little video of some of our time in London. We had dropped the car off in Oxford and then took the train to London. We spent several hours bouncing around London with no real plan other than making it to London City Airport to catch a flight to Edinburgh later in the day. As you can see at the end of the video, We could not escape the US news.
