First LONG day of travel.

Written by William Stites on May 21st, 2009

Our first day of travel is about to come to a close. We have been in transit since 1:00p.m. on May 20th till now, May 21st at 5:37 p.m. (Irish time) and are just taking care of a few little odds and ends before we gather together for dinner.

So far things have gone very well. The trip to JFK went smoothly and the flight to Shannon airport went well. We had a short 45 minute delay, but it helped once we got to Ireland as we started our day here at about 7:00 a.m. Irish time.

We traveled to see the Cliffs of Moher as well and a number of other sightseeing stops until we finally made it to Galway where we will be spending the night.

While we have had spots of rain, the weather as a whole has been brilliant! The student have been excited and energized despite the number of hours we have been traveling.

Our driver, Rory O’Connor, has once again come through with a great coach equipped with tables that the students have taken to sitting around to play games as we drive the narrow Irish roads.

We have been able to keep in good communications through our Twitter posts and have just recently posted a gallery of images from our travels so far.

Look for more updates as we continue. Again, thanks to Rory, we have a broadband modem card that should provide us with Internet access from any locations, though we will be putting that to the test when we enter Northern Ireland (UK).

Keep checking back as we post more content here, to Twitter, Flickr and our YouTube channel.
