    Manorhamilton? Feck. I'm in Belcoo. About ten miles from there. I take it you saw the manorhamilton/glenfarne vid? Absolute cracking road.:evil

    Actually I didn't see the vid! I'll be looking for it now though :). My wife's aunt & uncle (Aiden & Kathleen Meehan) own a B&B there - "The Bluebell". He's also on the fire department.

    Small world :)

    Man, you should have gone in October like I did. Not a single camper van. Six days of rain, yes, but no camper vans. Too cold for spiders, too.

    Great to relive the adventure. My RR is below, and a little bit more verbose. Feel free to skip to the pictures (taken with real 35mm film!).

    Thanks Edmond. Not as exotic as your own trip but I suppose the locals did speak a foreign language and have strange customs..
