We stayed in a hotel very near the airport in Dublin, and take a free shuttle to the airport.
We eat a quick breakfast at the airport (muffins and hot chocolate), and then board the plane. Throughout breakfast, I felt that I had a cold or an allergy coming on, which did eventually turn into a full-blown cold that laid me up for days.
The flight was pleasant, except for the fact that I couldn't sleep for more than a few minutes at a time.
I took many pictures of Greenland and the northern provinces of Canada out the window as we flew over them.
We will miss Ireland very much. The people there made my heart warm and made me feel so very welcome. The land is lovely, the cuisine is far better than you've heard, and the entire place made me feel at peace. Did I mention the people there are great?
