2013: Great Britain & Ireland
CBA World View in 2013 for a 13 Day Tour. This year we will "cross the
pond" to take in the sights of Ireland and Britain. This is a tour not
to be missed.
Dates of tour are March 27, 2013 through April 8, 2013.
trip starts off in the Emerald Isle (the real one, not the NC Coast).
Ireland got its nickname because of year-round rainfall and a temperate
climate keep the countryside a bright, vivid green. Our time in Ireland
will include a trip to the countryside as travel the Ring of Kerry
along the Atlantic coastline.
we make our way through Ireland we will stop at several interesting
locations. We will visit a Bog Village to see how people traditionally
lived. We'll see Irish landmarks like the Rock of Cashel (left) and
Blarney Castle. You can't travel to Ireland without taking time to kiss
the Blarney Stone (if you're brave enough). We'll also spend time in
Dublin, the largest and capital city of Ireland. Dublin has been home
to some literary giants, including James Joyce, Yeats, Jonathon Swift
and George Bernard Shaw.
spending several days in Ireland, we will board a ferry boat to take us
across the Irish Sea to Britain. We will port in the county of
Angelsey, Wales. This region of Wales has received more attention than
normal recently because a young, newly married couple chose to set up
their first home in Angelsey while the husband is in the Royal Air
Force. You may have heard of them.... their names are William and
Kate. From there we will ride into the English countryside visiting the
Lake District. We will stop at the home of famed poet William
it's off to the land of the Scots. We will spend several nights in
Edinburgh, the Scottish capital. While in Scotland, we will tour
Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle, and visit Loch Katrine and the
William Wallace (think of the movie Braveheart) Monument. We will also
get a little free time in city, plus a ghost walk!
Scotland, we get on the night train to London! London... Big Ben,
Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Harrod's, the London
Eye, the original Hard Rock Cafe, I could go on... There is so much
London has to offer. London is the perfect place to end a great trip
that you will definitely want to be part of.
