Plotting holidays — 10 Comments

  1. You have the coast well covered. Is this some new form of centripetal force?

    • Being coastal is somewhat of a coincidence.  In fact that map pinpoints the location of some of Ireland's finest dispensers of stout.  That too is a coincidence?

    • Heh!  Good old Killykeen Forest Park.  They used to have beautiful log cabins there but I don't know if they are still running.  We got a special deal which was too good to pass.  One of the few inland destinations and the only one without a decent pub nearby [see  above].

  2. The island of Ireland covers 84,431 square kilometers

    Nova Scotia covers 55,491 square kilometers

    just curious thought I'd post a comparison. We vaca alot round home and connecting provinces. Looking forward to an eventual trip to Ireland.

    • So get cracking on Google Earth and let's see how well you've covered the place!

      • will do! soon as I locate my virtual push pins, cannot for the life of me remember the years I'd have to guess the past 30

  3. You haven't stayed in Athlone, Birr or Mullingar, and appear to have avoided the Bog of Allen completely. You haven't been to the Real Ireland GD.

    • If I had plotted every holiday including pre-1975 then the map would be considerably more crowded.  For example I cruised the River Shannon a couple of times, so Athlone indeed would have been honoured on the map.  Nowadays though, the Midlands are just somewhere to travel through on the way to decent scenery.  😉

  4. I figured it out that would be past 20 yrs, most of it traveled in past 10 yrs. Every long weekend, plus 5 weeks holidays we drive the diesel everywhere we can, most often to the ferry terminal to take an ocean trip somewhere. Quite possibly we are fanitics most definately goofies and no kids so easier for us to do.
