Let The Journey Begin . . .
Meeting Our Driver, Ciaran
Ciaran clicked right along with our family as well as became part of our family along the journey. There was some joke telling going on, mostly bad, throughout the journey too. I wish I had a tape recorder along! Ciaran is a wealth of information and knew the ‘hot spots’ of where to eat. Thanks to him we never really got into a sea of people while hitting the hot tourist spots! He really got to know us in order to set the day in what we really wanted to see and do each day. We could not have covered the ground we did on this journey without the help of Ciaran!
