Today was another day of nothing save for some planning and booking for my upcoming time in Ireland.

I will say that planning is sometimes like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

When you think you’ve got it all figured out, something comes along to throw a wrench in your plans.

Case in point – I had Ireland all figured out.   I knew where I was going to be on what days and what I was going to do.   I knew which trains I needed to book and which hostels I was going to stay at.

As I started to book things I found that a tour I wanted to do out of Galway is only available on the weekends but I would only be in town on Wed, Thu, Fri.

This was a tour I needed to book at the tour of the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands is the main reason people visit the city of Galaway.

So, I had to quickly change my plan to squeeze one more day into Galaway and take a day away from later in the week.

Problem was I had already booked a train ticket for that day.   And a hostel.   And another hostel.

Yeah, by tweaking the trip by even one little day I now all of a sudden had to move and rebook 4 other things.

Ah, what’s a little hair pulling when you’re on a trip, eh?

Anyway, it’s all worked out and I’ll be in Ireland in just 3 days.

The next few days are going to be crazy as I’ll be staying in 3 different cities in 3 days.

Tomorrow I’ll head from Newcastle to Liverpool before heading to Conwy the next day and then onto Dublin after that.

Crazy times!

My vacation from my vacation is over.   Let’s go!
