Dublin – A Day Out On The DART

This was our fourth trip to Dublin in as many years, so we tried something different and it worked out better than we could have hoped. I booked the trip as a surprise part of Amanda’s 40th birthday celebrations. We both love Dublin and Amanda would have liked everyone to come over for the weekend, but with the cost and the travel we stuck with York for the birthday pub crawl the previous weekend. So, for my surprise trip, it was a fairly obvious choice and Amanda pretty much worked it out before we even left home.

The trip from Scunthorpe to Manchester Airport is fairly straightforward, apart from the inevitable traffic issues, but this time it was more complicated. Amanda had to be in Edinburgh with work the night before we were due to fly out of Manchester.

Where Do We Begin?

MadeiraSo, we’ve decided to create a travel blog to record our adventures from August 2015 onwards. However, what about all the places we’ve visited before today? Well, rather than spending too much time trying to recall these trips and the stories behind them, I thought I’d just make a list of the countries we’ve visited as a couple since our very first trip together. We started off with a long weekend in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, nicknamed “The City of a Hundred Spires”. Our most recent adventure, well holiday really, was to Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun, Mexico. This was to celebrate my step-daughter Chloe’s 18th birthday in July.
