The Groove of Travel

Wednesday - 19 Aug 1998
Londonderry - Ireland



Our first leg is to London on Virgin Atlantic. If you can you simple must take Virgin. Even the econo flyer is treated like royalty. Excellent food, great entertainment with individual monitors at every seat.(that work) Our ticket was to Cape Town but they let us jump off and do europe for a month and then hop back on. Thanks Richard, as if I know the guy.Why is Ireland's and England's money worth so much more than the US, baffles me, when looking at the comparative states of economy.Getting into the groove of long distance/time traveling is in learning and an efficient decision-making process.

The three day bus pass was the way to go for us. Any longer and a car or a bike would be better. There is an energy in the air that needs time to soak in and appreaciate. Ned didn't want to "DO" London, been there before so we passed right through on the bus to Dover. We managed to travel all night from Dublin to a small town hostel out side of Paris by l
