"Where everybody knows your name"...in Dublin

“Where everybody knows your name”…in Dublin

The Hand Hotel in Llangollen, Wales. The trek up to our room made me feel like I was in Hogwarts!

Hand Hotel stairs like Hogwarts (If you suffer vertigo or befuddle easily, I recommend skipping this power point embedded  video)

Where's my Real Estate Agent? I'll have this one please! :) Beaumaris Castle in Wales

Cathedral or Castle or neither? It was in London, that's all I remember. Name it and win a prize! LOL

I said I'd get a pic with my favorite British actor!

I said I’d get a pic with my favorite British actor! This was at the Globe Theater in London, England

Both created the same year! :D Only I would see the humor in this photo. LOL

One of our great instructors on her way to the other side. See me smiling on the platform watching her. Would that I could have that much courage! LOL

This was one of the people in our group that day. I’m sorry I don’t remember his name. I’m in the background on the platform getting ready to make the trip.

They said smile for the camera man. What camera man! I can’t see a camera man because I’m too petrified to let go or even move my head!

Breathe…Breathe…Now turn to the nice man with the camera perched ever so safely on the ground while you fly by more than 100 feet above a nearly bottomless lake, knowing you can’t swim!

Don’t let go! Just smile. Maybe it will be a good pic.

It really is quite a beautiful scene. Glad I started to look around a bit.

We landed on the bottom platform then walked up stairs to the top one. As if the first wasn’t high enough!?

See us all gathered ready to make the next daring trip?

IMG_5725

I had to be pulled back to the very start of the line and then pushed to make sure I’d have enough momentum to reach all the way to the end. This is the longest zip line in the state!

IMG_5726

Just a little nervous about not making it all the way. I tucked up everything I possibly could tuck!

IMG_5727

Past halfway…doing good, but still clinched.

IMG_5729

I think my trainers are glued together at this point!

IMG_5728

Nearly there, but still I won’t let loose.

Standing on tiptoes on the highest step of the stool just so the instructor can unhook me from the line properly.

I got this! What a piece of cake! Whew! How many more lines did you say we have to go??
