Counting the days until – Athlone

Is there something nicer than heading west and then celebrating one’s birthday in Ireland (for the umpteenth time)?  :mrgreen:

19 and/or 21 days to go…

Athlone (/æθˈloʊn/; Irish: Baile Átha Luain, meaning “town of Luan’s ford”) is a town on the River Shannon near the southern shore of Lough Ree in Ireland. It is the largest town in the Midlands Region.

Athlone is near the geographical centre of Ireland (8.85 kilometres north-north-west of the town), in the area of Carnagh East in County Roscommon. Wolfgang chose wisely – as usual! Imagine heading in every direction, e.g. returning to Galway’s beautiful grey-golden sky…Athlone_Ireland_Map

    • Athlone will be our base for a few days, seemed like the ideal place. I’ll certainly have a lot to tell afterwards. Thank you, Mas. 🙂
