For the month of May I’ll be away; mostly in Ireland but I’m driving to South Wales first and combining my trip with a visit to a dear friend in Powys.
My Itinerary :
1st – 5th May in Wales
5th May Ferry from Fishguard to Rosslare
6th to 11th May staying at Cappoquin, near Lismore, Co. Waterford
11th to 14th May staying with family in Co. Kildare
14th to 18th May volunteer helper at Ballymaloe Lit Fest, Co. Cork
18th to 26th May back in Co.Kildare
26th to 29th May at National Trust, Crom Estate, Co. Fermanagh
29th to 31st May at Glenarm on the Antrim coast
31st May Returning home from Belfast to Liverpool (actually, Birkenhead)
I had initially applied to ‘Workaway’ as I did in Switzerland two years ago but out of nine applications only four responded. Of those that did respond one has invited me to visit and another put me in touch with the Ballymaloe Festival.
I’m hoping to post daily again as I did in 2013 (although I may not have internet access each day) : so if you’re interested sign up to follow me here : My Irish Times : Round Ireland with a Book Box. The subtitle is from Tony Hawks’s book : Round Ireland with a Fridge. But I won’t be hitching – I’m taking my car – and I won’t have a fridge. I thought about saying ‘with a cool box’ but as I wrote this to a friend I thought, no, I’m more likely to have a box of books than a cool box of food.
