A Travellerspoint blog

Mr. & Mrs. Fancypants


Today, we drove into Derry and were welcomed by a wonderful Airbnb host. David was so personable, had a dog (!!) and baked us homemade banana bread for breakfast. I tell you, if you have yet to use Airbnb, it is simply lovely! Staying at an actual house and meeting the locals is so wonderful. The hosts are such hospitable people to open up their homes to foreigners. I love it! If I ever have the opportunity to host at my future place, I totally will... Though I should check with Matt first, shouldn't I? :p

We didn't have long to stay in Derry (since it's in the UK (Northern Ireland), it was our longest drive day). So, we didn't arrive until late and only had the evening. We went downtown Derry for dinner and drinks and ended up a fancy posh restaurant. We certainly felt out of place, but we did our best to act high-class (note, did our best- not that good, lol). We were sat on the second floor right next to the window overlooking a Festival. So, after we finished our meal, we went down to peruse the Foyle Maritime Festival. We happened upon a wonderful street band with a beer tent and it was perfect to have found something so unexpected. We sang along while the rain sprinkled (we knew we'd get some sooner or later in Ireland). It was a lot of fun just walking around the carnival-esque festival and had a really wonderful evening. I love travel days like that- ones that just surprise you!

Hard to believe we leave for our final destination tomorrow.?
