Monday 30-5-2016 - It’s the day before I take my 11-week writing / travelling trip to Lisbon, Florence and Berlin and finally summer has come to Ireland with a glorious sunny day, after months of coldness all this year, right up to the end of May. It’s a really lovely evening, clear water across the bay and the orange/pink sky is reflected in the calm water below. Such a positive omen for my trip ahead, where I’ll be writing Book 2 in my thriller trilogy and enjoying the cities, the culture, the architecture, the art, the food and the ambience, but most of all the freedom.
Tuesday 31-5-2016 - Day one and I'm up at 4am to catch the airport bus, excited and ready for my adventure ahead: 11 weeks in Europe, and I'm completely wide awake even though I only got about 4 hours sleep last night. I'll be tired later I know. I'm flying to Lisbon at 6am
