So we are home now (that’s me and our boys), Chris stayed in Ireland whilst we were away.
I love travelling and I like the journey. When we take the ferry from or to Dublin, the whole thing takes about 12 hours, including the ferry crossing.
Coming off the ferry into Dublin.
However, I have my sat nav set up to avoid toll roads so (I think) that’s why I always end up travelling through Dublin centre. It’s interesting (I quite like it in some ways). But it is so busy, you’re sat in traffic for quite a long time. The interesting thing this time were the cyclists and people on electric scooters. It was terrifying… they zip in and out of traffic and through really narrow gaps. Fair play to them, they look very skilled and it is definitely quicker than using a car.. but it’s quite awe inspiringly scary too…I suppose it must be similar in London.
We got back around tenish last night. It was so dark, the little lanes were actually easier than the main roads to drive on. I couldn’t see the markings on the main roads very well and people tend to drive right up behind you. It started belting it down with rain whilst we were on the main roads and it was dicey. There was a lot of prayer and singing going on…and we got back safely.
It’s doubtful now that we will be travelling to England again for quite a while. Although we obviously don’t know for certain. It was a lovely time with lots of special memories that are imprinted in my memory. But now it’s Ireland time. We will keep in touch though..don’t worry about that. There will also be praying going on for those who need it. It’s time to immerse in God, follow Him and see where He leads.
