This morning I arrived at Belfast International Airport after an overnight flight from Denver International Airport! After driving around Lough Neagh (the big lake in Northern Ireland), I arrived in Magherafelt, where my relatives from my mom's side live, my 2nd and 3rd cousins. I am staying at my Great Aunt Bertie and Great Uncle Joe's house. Within five minutes of stepping in the door, Aunt Bertie had made some tea and warmed up some scones from the family bakery (which I will tour during my trip). We talked and enjoyed scones and tea for a while and afterwards I rested because of my jet lag. I just woke up, and can already smell the potatoes and meat downstairs that Aunt Bertie is making for dinner. Yum! I will blog soon and tell you of all the wonderful places I see and things I do!
P.S. Loving the irish accents!!!
