The Great Northern Roadtrip

Last week we hit the road in my little mini (there were four of us – Ro and his two equally tall, strapping brothers). It was cramped to say the least! Ro’s family have a family tradition of going to Portstewart every year – that’s where his Dad is from. I’ve been in on this tradition this past two years and I love it. We always play tennis and go for ice cream, and the food is always delish – well what’s not to love!

Unfortunately we were strapped for time this year and my own parents were holidaying over in the hills of Donegal, so we left Ro’s family and spent a few days around the seaside town of Downings. We stayed in a really cool round tower house (Grand Design-worthy!), and visited such interesting heritage sites as Dunfanaghy’s Workhouse.

And now I think to myself, as I did when I came back from Australia – how come we don’t go on road trips more often!
