I know many of you followed along on my Facebook pages as Jerry and I took our first trip to Europe. I have a few more pictures to add to those and thought I would post them here for those who hadn’t seen the play by play action. Just to bring everyone up to speed Jerry and I left for London on Feb. 2 and spent 4 nights there at the Hilton on Park Lane, then two nights in Paris at the Holiday Inn Notre Dame and finally 3 nights at the St. Regis in Rome before flying home. I used frequent flyer miles to pay for our Business class seats on US Airways and hotel points to pay for all three of our hotel stays. We had a fabulous time, even though it snowed every place we went, and has turned me into a complete miles and points junkie.
And for what’s up next? We will be doing the North Texas Irish Festival next weekend for the first time ever! It happens at Fair Park in Dallas and runs from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. (March 2 – 4). I haven’t even been to the Irish Festival in over 20 years and and am sure that it has grown tremendously during that time. As I am 1/4 Irish, (my mother’s maiden name was Kennedy and my great grandparents came over from Ireland) I am particularly looking forward to being a part of this event. If you live in the area think about attending. There should be lots of great food, entertainment and crafts.
