Month: April 2016


35 days. 1555 miles driven. Multiple more train-ed, ferry-ed and flown. Seven author talks. Three days in a book fair. One old politician seen. Eight counties stopped in. Many more travelled through.

I’ve spent the last week there, catching up with family, friends, drizzle 🙂 Yep, Northern Ireland in the spring can be glorious. It can also be overcast, wet and cold.
