it’s a long way to Tipperary


Everywhere is a long way from Australia.

Next year I’m flying to Ireland and this is where my current indecision is taking hold.

Which airline do I fly, via where, when do I book, will there be specials I should wait for etcetcetc.

One day I’ll just do it, just book. It won’t be so much that I made up my mind…it’ll be that I just clicked book and pay now!

It’ll take over 24 hours to get there. I’m worried about jetlag. I’m worried about the timing of tablets I take. If I could get my head around it all and just book the rest is pure excitement anticipation.

I’m going to Ireland.

  3. Awesome! Have fun in Ireland! πŸ™‚

  4. Have a lovely trip. Yes. Everywhere is a long way from Autralia. This is one of the atractions.

    My family wants a visit to Ireland . There’s a ferry that goes not far from here. Once we get a car…

  5. This is one of the reasons I can’t go to Australia, that is one loooonnnngggg plane ride.

    As for the ticket. If you look on and save your search, they will send you updates as the price changes! Just found that out when planning our honeymoon.

    I’m so jealous that you are going to Ireland. SO. JEALOUS.

    • Thanks for the tip Maggie πŸ™‚

      I know, it’s going to be amazing….but remember the green grass over the fence – if I had a partner I’d be happy to stay home πŸ˜‰ so I’m jealous too!!

  6. It IS a long way to Tipperary. Here’s to a good trip.

    Oh, you have to book it first. πŸ™‚

    • ha ha yes I have to make THAT decision!! pacing the floor, checking online…one day soon I’ll just book

      (oh, and ps I’m not actually going to Tipperary..)

      • To quote my dad: “So… what’d you decide?” πŸ™‚

        Parts of me are from Ireland. Say hi for me.

        • done, booked πŸ™‚

          which part of Ireland are the parts from? just so if I do pass by I’ll know to say hi…mind you, it’s not for months yet.

          • Hate to admit it, but I don’t even know which parts of me are from where. I only know that my paternal grandmother was Irish, and that’s only because my German grandfather would bring it up.

            Hoping you have a good trip, Annie. Hang in. The time will come.

          • When the time is right Tim, you can do some digging if you want to find out. I have a couple of local genealogists working on some details for me before I get there πŸ™‚

  7. Ireland is awesome, you won’t regret it πŸ™‚

  8. Just book, Annie. Trust the Universe to guide you! xoxoM

    • Another vote for the universe and I know what that means πŸ™‚

      I’ve contacted a local genealogist and got him doing some research for me – have almost narrowed the dates down to go – yippeee
