Our last two days in Ireland were focused around Cobh and Dublin. We stayed at the charming Killiane Castle Country House B&B, visited the ‘Deck of Cards’ houses to take photos, and finished our trip at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.
Ring of Kerry & Wild Atlantic Way
We set out shortly after 10am. We spent some time trying to get the car out of Japanese mode, but were stuck on a map of Tokyo on screen and Japanese radio stations programmed in. I managed to connect my phone via Bluetooth but all it did was play music through the car’s tinny speakers. …
Dublin to Limerick
Our first day in Ireland was simple: pick up car rental, drive to Limerick and hear some live music at an Irish pub! We also ate some good food and explored around town on foot.

Hello and Goodbye, London
To close our European babymoon, we spent our day sight-seeing in London before boarding the flight home.
Windsor, Stonehenge, & Oxford
We escaped the hustle and bustle of London with a bus tour with Evan Evans to Windsor, Stonehenge, and Oxford. We saw a lot in one day!
Journey to Venice
Our trip took off with a red eye flight to London, an 8 hour layover in Gatwick, then a 2 hour flight to Venice, arriving at our final destination at nightfall. We booked a ‘daylet’ in Gatwick to get some napping in and a shower during our layover.
Last Hours in Scotland
The final hours of our trip to Scotland were uneventful. Our aim for the day was to visit the filming locations for the TV show Shetland and check out a new restaurant. However, neither turned out quite as planned…

As a child, I was fascinated by the Loch Ness monster. Today I made a lifelong dream come true. We drove from Skye to Plockton, then along the Loch Ness to Drumnadrochit. I didn’t see the fabled monster, but we enjoyed the Highlands and the Uruquart castles and stayed overnight on a boat on the famous loch.
