At the Second Work Week I got a lot of confidence with the bus connections. The work to now becomes more difficult. And I understand from the Irish accent maybe better.
Today we went to the Belfast Zoo. Jamie and I tried to get the Bus 1d at 10:20 AM. But like every day the bus didn’t come even at 10:35 AM. So we decided to walk to another bus station where we tried to get the bus where the other guys where in. As we arrived at the Belfast „Belfast Zoo“ weiterlesen
Yesterday was a very cloudy day with a lot of rain. Our plan to go to the zoo was unfortunately cancelled. I met with Konrad and bought a daily deal at the St. Georg’s Market. We had seen that offer last week. We got Steaks, Chicken, Pork, Steak burger and spicy meet balls for only 20£. „Belfast City Hall“ weiterlesen
On Saturday I was at the City Hall, I went there by bus and I had to leave the bus one station earlier than expected because there was a Political demonstration in front of the City Hall.
My weekend was rather unexciting, so this article will be quite short.
On Saturday we first planned to go to the zoo, but because the weather was not looking well we spontaneously changed our plans and went to the Belfast City Center. „Week 2 – Game Over“ weiterlesen
Like the last weekend I was on tour to play Ingress. This time I drove on saturday to Lisburn; the place Konrad and I are knowing because of the ride in the express train. As I arrived I was surprised because I heard loud music and suddenly a carnival-like parade passed me. I decided to follow the masses of people to the Wallace park. There were a few old timer exhibited and there was even a big fair. Over the cordoned road drove behind the bandwagon some new and old military wagons followed by some people dressed up as dinosaurs. As it turned out later it was the „Mayor’s Carnival Parade and Family Fun Day“ event. The rest of the day I explored Lisburn and at the evening I drove home.
On sunday (the 22th) I wanted to explore another corner of Belfast and so I was heading to the Ormeau park which is on the other side of the Lagan. Apart from the heavy rain in between times the park is very big and beautiful. There I spended some hours before I was heading in the direction to the Titanic Quarter. I past some monuments, the Titanic and some wall paintings which adorn the streets. A while later I was a bit shocked because I almost arrived at the airport George Best. According to Google maps the whole way to the airport is about 5,6 miles(!) but I am sure my way was even longer because I had taken a few detours because of Ingress. All I can say is that I was a total of seven hours on foot.
