Ravenhill Guesthouse Belfast
Read my review - 5/5 stars

All settled in our first delightful B and B in Belfast.  Travel over went smoothly - nice to have it broken into 2 with the stop in TO.  Funny little black Opal, stick shift (gulp) as automatic was 40 pounds more a DAY!!. 

 Such a wonderful start to our trip - gal at AC checkin at YVR was absolutely hilarious - eating her organic cookies and "don't tell anyone I told you but you guys are up there for upgrading" and her "could I just come with you?". 

 Getting rental car again - an absolute gem of a young woman ensuring we knew all the info we needed to, so smiley and friendly - warms one's heart.
Rich maneuvered us beautifully onto the M-1, stick shift AND on the 'wrong' side of the road,  with his trusty navigator getting almost 100% of the way to the door of the B and B.  BUT!! proud we were to do one or two U turns and got right back to where we wanted to be.  It's the feeling of challenge and success that drives us to travel, explore new territory and be immersed in new ways of looking at things - so healthy!!!  away from the minutia of the mundane and negative energy we get hooked into - so very refreshing. 

 Roger at the B and B greeted us warmly even tho' we were 2 hours early.  LOVED his attitude esp. when I apologized saying I bet we'd ruined his schedule - "oh it's just ruined my day, it will never be the same..." all with that delightful Irish twinkle in his eye.   

Errigle Inn Pub after a very heavy 3 hour sleep - just a few minutes walk to clear away the cobwebs and back again to help digest the beef curry and R's Irish stew.  I was surprised that Guinness actually didn't taste as yucky as I'd thought!!  supposed to be very healthy...
Back to our VERY comfy bed, cozy on a chillier eve  - showers but not when we were walking - lots of sun so if this is the kind of weather we'll see - awesome!! 

 SWEET dreams of exploring Belfast tomorrow - have tour of huge Titanic interactive museum and a tour with a Black Taxi cabbie to help us understand all that has impacted Belfast over the years.
