We plan to travel to Ireland today. The travel from Manchester to Ireland involves travelling through Wales, then catching a Ferry and then reaching Ireland. From Ireland we also plan to go to Northern Ireland. So, we plan to add three more countries today.
Wales is a beautiful country. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are countries in United Kingdom, but are independent countries. They all come under United Kingdom along with England. We got a ferry from Holyhead in Wales to Dublin in Ireland.
We left at about 5:30am from hotel at Knutsford for Holyhead. The ferry was scheduled to start at 8:15am and we were to report at 7:30am. We reached on time and got the ferry. The scenery all along was superb. At Penmaenmawr, Lianfairfechan we saw beautiful town in Wales. The ferry ride was good. There was a restaurant and we could get breakfast there. We enjoyed the journey to Dublin.
Puneet stays in Dublin. He was waiting for us near the port and we all started straightaway for Northern Ireland.
Puneet had come to Leeds to meet us. When we returned from the Match at Leeds on 6th July, he was waiting for us at the hotel. He went back next day morning. Today he came with us to Northern Ireland and also to a sightseeing spot in Ireland. We stayed at his house overnight. The trip to Ireland was very enjoyable more so because of the presence of Puneet. He had made all arrangements at his house to make our stay very comfortable. His wife and children have gone these days to India, still he had all the arrangements in place single-handedly.
Aviv got interested in the play area in the Lawn in his house. He played basketball for long time with all of us. He really enjoyed staying in a house after about 50 days. We have been staying in different hotels from the day we left Singapore on 17th May, 2019.
We slept late as we were all talking till late in the night.
