Thoughts from the road, 9 March 2020
Dublin to Galway by train today, then drove north to Clifden.
It is so easy to settle into the comfortable and routine, getting out and exploring new places helps us grow.
Driving on the left. I made it through the first day with no major incidents. It takes concentration and attention, the distance from the curb is on the opposite side, the gear shift is on the opposite side, and turns have to be thought through to assure you are turning into the desired lane. GPS really helps, except when it doesn’t, then we have a long drive on roads wide enough for sheep for five miles. Scotland needs to be soon.
The Irish train was very comfortable and easy. Only three coaches, lots of stops, and still crossed the country from west to east in three hours. Easy to book online and pick up from the machine in the station.
Spectacular landscapes this afternoon in the fog and rain, the pictures I did take are on my real camera and I will share those from home.
