For the past number of months, Dina & I have been backwarding & forwarding between London & Belfast… but November is different. This month we decided we’d spend our time together in other places.

NI and Wedding Preparations

This weekend passed I travelled over to Northern Ireland for a few days to catch up with Dina and to continue our Wedding Preparations. It was probably one of the smoothest return journeys I’ve completed this year to the Province with Buses, Trains and Planes all running to schedule (well nearly – the Translink service … Continue reading
