There is a good mix of roads; everything from bumpy potholed single lanes to superb A roads and motorways. Southern Ireland has spent its allocation from Europe very wisely!!

All paid for now. Happy with luggage and kit. Spending money sorted, AA European cover paid for. Informed insurance co of dates of travel.
Will probably take too much stuff, so listening to the words of advice from the chap running the trip.
Bought myself a helmet mounted camera, so will post some none boring bits when i get back.

Finished work now.. off till 3rd of July. Going to stay with the folks on Friday night, on coast in North Wales, then ride to Hollyhead for the 0855 fast ferry Saturday morning.

Thought i would take too much stuff,but not so bad. Bought some cheap t shirts,undies and socks from market,so will be throwing them away each night. No clothes washing,or bringing home dirty clothes...just two pairs of trousers for evening and some smarter t shirts.

Tried streamlining chargers...phone,camera,video camera, all have different fittings so have to take em all.

So, all sorted.

Will post more when i can.

G :D
