We had a fabulous morning in Belfast visiting the Titanic Exhibition. If you happen to be in Belfast, we can recommend this tour. They really have put together an excellent experience for visitors.
I have included some photos for you in my album.
After driving out of Belfast we had yet another 'Irish' experience. Our B&B booking address said, '17 Kilkeel Rd, Newry'. So, we drove to Newry.
The GPS couldn't find it, so we asked the owner of a petrol station in Newry. He said he'd never heard of it, so suggested we drive to 17 Kilkeel Rd, Newcastle - 40 kms across the mountains!!!!!! So, we set the GPS and off we drove across the mountains!!!!
The GPS said, 'You have reached your destination'. Needless to say, there was no B&B at No. 17, so I popped into the local pharmacy to ask for help. The pharmacist Googled it and said, 'Oh, you drove to 17 Kilkeel Rd, Annalong. Just up the road there is another Kilkeel Rd at Newcastle. Try that No. 17'
So, FINALLY, we drove up the road and found another No. 17 and it was the right one!!!!
But the funny thing was, (or another funny thing!!!), the B&B host said, 'Oh, there's another Kilkeel Rd past Annalong in Kilkeel'.
Three Kilkeel Rds in three adjoining townships!!!
So, we drove all over eastern Northern Ireland to find the B&B - south to Newry, 40 kms across the mountains to Annalong and north 10 kms to Newcastle!!!! Argh!!!!!
But all is well tonight. We had a lovely dinner/bottle of wine at our hotel in Dublin, having returned today, have packed/reorganised our bags and are ready to fly to Cardiff, Wales tomorrow morning!
The adventure continues!!
We love you all very much!
