Northern Ireland Day 1

We were up early, had our breakfast, loaded our luggage on to our coach and headed for Belfast, Northern Ireland. We passed over the border, without hardly noticing that we had. We were soon in the city centre and had time to visit the impressive grandeur of the city hall before meeting our local guide, Dee. We then went to The Falls Road area and The Shankill Road, with it’s many painted murals depicting the struggles for peace. We were able to write a message on the Peace Wall. We went back in to the city and visited the Titanic Quarter, where the ill fated ship was built and launched. We headed up to Queen’s University, founded in 1845. We stopped close to the Ulster Museum and went for some lunch before looking around the museum and the Botanical Gardens. We then drove back in to the centre of the city. We had some time to look around the shops before heading to our hotel. Tomorrow we are visiting Derry and then The Giant’s Causeway.
