Great Journey ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Day 699
What do we know about Ireland? Not much, actually.

During the 7-hour crossing from Liverpool to Dublin we try to read in.

We read that Ireland is a country of emigrants. That it is called the "green island". That it is quiet and deserted and at the same time lively in Dublin's streets. Ireland is said to be the land of pubs and Guinness. Whiskey is spelled with an ey here, but we are not interested in that or in whiskey itself.

Kerry Gold butter comes to mind, green meadows, lots of sheep, wild cliffs on the Atlantic. The Aran jumper and, of course, Irish music. U2, Irish folk and Enya. We also learn that Ireland has won the Eurovision Song Contest 7 times. Oh yes, how interesting.

But we also read about Irish mythology, about lovely people and about rainy weather. Well, we have it with good weather! They play a team sport here called hurling and then there's rugby.

Then we learn about global corporations that have their headquarters here and about the rising cost of living. But also about quality of life, tranquillity in the countryside and again and again we read about beautiful landscapes.

And what's new: we hardly have any needles in our wish list. In fact, we don't have a plan for where we will go on the island.

The only thing that is certain is that we are looking forward to it!

Road trip realities

How we manage to live in the van

Leben pur! Unterwegs. Whether at icy -30 ยฐC in the Lapland winter or in the sand of the Tunisian desert, whether in the left-hand traffic of England or along picturesque dream coasts of Europe. Whether in the hot summer of Turkey or in the "interesting" traffic of Georgia.

We report on frozen sliding doors, living together on 9.5 square metres, the inevitable sand in the desert and unforgettable ferry trips. We look at how we make do with little and still have way too much.
