Hi DJ. I leave from San Francisco next Thursday and arrive in Dublin on Friday afternoon. I'll be there until the following Thursday. Tricia and Brendan are such great hosts. They have already made some exciting plans for us, including a trip to Belfast to see the Titanic Museum. It should be amazing!

Elaine:  I'm with Tricia.  Can you send me some of your energy?

Thanks Pat, today we went to the Titanic experience in Belfast which was amazing and we all loved it despite one or two small things we didn't like, we then had a typical pub lunch in a typical irish pub in Carlingford which we enjoyed, lots of chat and craic by the barman and think Rena enjoyed it too:)

I'm off to Venice, Florence and Rome on Sunday morning!  My virgin trip to Italy….I'm very excited.  Going with a tour group so I don't have to think (I'm a lazy tourist :)  Meeting a friend for dinner in Florence as he will happen to be there for a conference.  It's all good….
