So as I mentioned before my good friend and fellow blogger MessyCarla was visiting Northern Ireland for a few days this week. I've known Carla for many, many years (through the ye olde land of Livejournal) and she came and stayed with me before in 2010.
We took a road trip to Derry/Londonderry yesterday with her lovely friends and my friend Sarah, and it was really fun as I've never been there before (shame!). I didn't take many photos because 1. it was bloody FREEZING and I couldn't be bothered, its -1 today, and 2. My camera is pretty much broken, or at least the focus on the lens is so I got annoyed with it too much to take many.
Started the day with an Ulster fry, that's basically a normal fry but with soda and potato bread (my fav).
Pretty views on the way there.
Sarah's hair, which I am jealous of.
The part of the city where Bloody Sunday took place. It was interesting trying to explain the Troubles to Carla and her Geordie friends, but I think Sarah and I did okay?
Walking around the walls which surround part of the city, we took a guided tour. Our tour guide was very Irish and funny and got into an argument with the other tour company man and it was like something from Father Ted.
My new iphone cover in all the tack splendour. It's from Accessorize.
Had to take a photo of this as it's my surname, and spelled right for once! I had loads of fun with Carla and her friends, and a visit to Newcastle is in order soon!
