After nearly two weeks walking in the country, we hit the town with euros in our pockets and BOOKSHOPS to visit! With the Rowan Tree Hostel right in the center, making navigation easy, the kids broke into groups and headed out to explore. Nearly every pub had live music, coffee shops had scones and hot chocolate, and – the “charity shops” had amazing European clothes for a couple euro.

I bought a library of books by UK authors to hand out on the bus for our long drive the next day. They were well appreciated – giving new meaning to the expression Face-Book.

That night, we all hit a session that was being live streamed, and our musicians were featured on a Facebook feed. It was a huge sensory input day after so much wind and mist and sheep and stone and hedges.
