Opening up Again!

Things have been a bit slow on our blog lately – between busy work schedules and establishments still being closed. The good news is that here in Northern Ireland the lockdown is slowly starting to be lifted. This weekend is a big step in the lifting of restrictions with bars, cafes and hotels reopening again, we can’t wait to get out although we will maybe wait a week or two till it dies down a bit!

With the shops opening up again in Belfast we got to go shopping over the weekend, and even with the miserable weather on Saturday the streets were busier than we’d seen them in a long time. The city is starting to buzz with life again, and you can see that businesses are starting to prepare for the big reopening.

In the meantime, we have been planning our travels for the future. It’s looking very unlikely that we are going to be cruising in September and so we have set our sights on other destinations. We might get away to Poland with our friends and we have talked about doing a “staycation” and exploring more of Ireland!

Further into the future we have booked a cruise for next summer around the Norwegian Fjords, and we have also been looking at exploring some of Eastern Europe with city breaks, and perhaps a trip to Asia in future – Thailand being a destination we have heard some great reports about.

So Beautiful!

Until then stay safe and keep planning the next adventure!

Brianna and Iain.

  1. We are happy to see restrictions easing in Ireland too, it’s been such a long time since we were allowed to freely travel within the country! As much as we want to jump on the plane, we gonna wait until it’s perfectly safe to do so and in the meantime are planning staycations. I hope you get to go on a cruise around Norway, that sounds like a dream trip. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

      1. I’ve never been to Ireland although my great grandma was from Gowran. I’d love to visit.
