Spring trip possible


We are thinking about a spring trip to Ireland. It would be our "retirement trip!  Yes that's right!  We will be officially retired by the end of September.  We are thinking a month total again this time around and the question being; do we spend it all in Central and NW Ireland, or do we couple it with 2 weeks in Germany and 2 in NW Ireland.  Our time frame would be sometime in late March through Mid May.  Since we winter in Yuma Az. we would be flying out of PHX.  Will start watching airfare in various combinations of PHX, SNN, DUB, and FRA.  

Spring in Ireland with April showers, April flowers, and baby lambs is enticing!

Dan,

Congratulations on your retirement! Once you get into it you will wonder how you ever worked and had a life at the same time. Now you have a big decision to make. Have you been to Germany before? I was there several years ago and enjoyed it although I much prefer Ireland. But if you have never been perhaps breaking up the trip into two countries will give you new horizons.

Michele,
We were in Germany for 4-5 days on our Eastern Europe tour 2 years ago. 50% of my ancestry was from Germany, and this gives me some potential for finding family over there. My Grandmorher visited relatives in Germany in the 1980's and they were elderly at that time, so no great expectations!
We have promised our two sons a trip to Ireland if/when our business property sells, and of course we would take our GD (she is now 13 and wants to go back!). If that were to happen, we would spend the whole month in Ireland and we would put the Germany trip off for an other year!
