"Tanks" a Million!

Our first home exchange was a SUCCESS!

After purchasing our Cape Cod cottage in June 2011, I decided to make a listing on the home exchange site just like the movie, "The Holiday" with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz.


We exchanged with a lovely couple from Ireland, Helen and Ray.  We did a simultaneous exchange, but were fortunate to meet them over in Ireland when we visited.  Here we are at Uncle Tom's Pub near their house.

 
We visited the Cliffs of Moher and boy was it windy and chilly.  The views were absolutely spectacular. Here is Jim and I at the cliffs.

 
We spent a few days in Dublin and toured around in a double-decker tour bus.  Dublin reminded me so much of Boston!



We spent a day at the Bunratty Castle, here I am with Mom and Dad:


European phone booth smooch!  And my Dad apparently flipping everybody off.....

 
Temple Bar -- my favorite night out while we were in Ireland.  It was such a cool experience, live music and awesome beers.
