Arriving at the bridge at Carrick-a-Rede as part of a Paddywagon tour group meant we were never going to capture this location without someone else in the way of the shot. We could have hung back and waited for the tour group to move along, back to the bus, but John, our driver had already warned his passengers that anyone late would have to sing a little song, and we didn’t think that was fair. We would already have kept everyone back as it is.

Last winter I dropped into O’Tooles Bar in County Down, Northern Ireland for a beer. Had I done so on this same evening twenty years previously there is a chance I would have been shot dead
Working for your keep in a hostel is a good way of cutting down on expensive accommodation costs and circumventing local employment visa requirements. Though it can be a grey area many hostels are willing to provide unpaid work in countries where avenues for paid employment are closed.
Belfast was another place that we attempted to trade advertising for a room and we are glad we did. We didn’t know what to expect when we pitched up late to Paddy’s Palace, just in time before Emma left for the night, but it wasn’t the lovely two room apartment they had waiting for us.
