After a 20 min flight from Manchester we landed in Ireland then had a 1 hour and 30min train trip to Northern Ireland stopping in Portadown - County Armagh. Our long lost second cousin who we found when my uncle went over 10 years ago, Josie, picked us up and was absolutley gorgeous. Took us around and showed us her town and the history, then we went back to her house and she had all this food cooked up waiting for us.
The next night we went out for dinner to the Platters Pub in Warrings Town N Ireland. I say the best way to get a good feel of a place is to either go out to the country or hit the pubs and thats what we did. It was an awesome night met heaps of people and half of them i could hardly understand it was great, Oh and the guinness tastes 10 times better.
Next day we podded around the town just walking everywhere and met up with a few people then had to get ready to leave early the next morning (we werent there for long we detoured off the itinerary). But i would love to get back there and stay for a lil while.
Next day flew back to England then got ready for New York
