This day five years ago was one of my absolute favorites on my trip to Ireland. I got up in the wee hours, hopped on the tiniest plane EVER (see picture) – as it was too small even for an aisle, we had to enter our seats from the outside, like a van – and made the eight-minute flight from the mainland to Inishmore, one of the Aran Islands. I LOVED Inishmore and can’t wait to go back!
Ireland, September 3, 2005: Inishmore
So many favorite moments from Inishmore – it was hard to pick just a few pictures!
Scotland, September 3, 2009: Edinburgh
On the other hand, apparently I went around Edinburgh, one year ago today, without my camera! I don’t have a single picture from September 3, 2009. So, hopefully this panorama will suffice, taken Sept. 2. This was five or six pictures, stitched together; this is looking up at Edinburgh Castle (right side) and what I call the “back side of the Royal Mile” from Princes Street Gardens. (Click to enlarge, as with all the pictures.)
Tomorrow: Doolin in Ireland, and more Edinburgh in Scotland!
