Packing for Ireland

Packing for Ireland


Now this question actually made me very
happy. “The wife and I,” the wife and I, “have a two-week trip to Ireland in May from
Dublin then south and then to the coast and flying out of Shannon.” Shannon is a
tremendous airport. “Like you, we are one bag packers. I read your packing essay
but do you have, but do you pack any additional shoes to handle the wet
weather? Do you recommend any other special clothing for Ireland’s crazy
weather?” Those are good questions. First, no. The shoes I wear in Ireland. I
don’t want to give any brand names, but those are the shoes I wear. These are
what I wear in the plane these what I wear every day. I had to
wash them when I got home. You could find a pair. Back when I went to the Middle
East the first time, I found this really kind of cool pair of, they were like
running shoe boots with some waterproofing in them but you want them
light, easy to, light and easy and if you’re like us you spend most of your
time on concrete, you don’t really mean need much. As for the special clothing,
in may it’s not gonna be a bad time. We generally I generally have a jacket on
which is easy to take off but in the pockets of the jacket I have two things.
I have a little backpack that’s shrinks down to size this big and I have a
little poncho that shrinks down to size this big and I use the backpack if we go
for example we need to buy some food for dinner or a bottle of wine or if we do
find something that we want to bring home, I pop the backpack out and then we
walk home with it. I put a picture up somewhere of me doing loaded carries
coming home from the grocery store one night. We had 165 euros worth of
groceries and I carry them all in my backpack and then the two extra bags
that we carry when we go shopping and there was, Tiff took a picture of me because
it was, she she said it reminded her about how I train at home and I had
about a two mile walk with a fair, a fair load. Hey got my workout in.
The thing I would recommend, a couple things I would recommend, if you did read
it, I always have the one bag that I bring that has the sandals, the swim
trunks, that magic towel that I my daughter got for me, that you know the
swimmer towel that you always get dry with. I always bring a beanie and a pair
of gloves in there too and I would recommend so when I when it does kind of
turn a little bit I take, I would walk around with the glove stuffed in the
beanie also in my pockets. The number of times I’ve had to pull out the poncho
this last trip was zero even though it was the rainy season because once you
start walking it you know you’re gonna get wet and you just zip it up and just
you know you’re gonna get wet but I love your question and I hope you have a great
time. Feel free to email again if I can give you any ideas and if you go to
Galway I have some places I want you to see okay. In Galway as you go up High
Street or Market Street, you’ll know the street, I want you to go to
Tuco’s Taqueria, which was just voted the best Mexican food in Ireland and I
want you to go in there and say, ask for the owner and say or any of the people
know and just say. The owners name is Angus and you’ll say, “Dan John sent me.”
and then he will give you a big hug and begin to weep. Garavans ah what a
great place. O’Connell’s I’m already missing it
already and I only been home for a week.
