9 – 11 June 2016: Ireland is Green because it Rains, a Lot
Most everyone knows that the source of Ireland’s lushness is its rainfall. We were prepared for the most part but planning to be wet is important. Unless you have the luxury of waiting around to tour the sites when it is dry, finding a way to keep somewhat dry is your only option. Besides the obvious rain gear, we found plastic ziplock bags to be helpful in protecting items in our backpacks. The first day we suffered some water damage from drenched backpacks that didn’t always stay protected under the umbrellas.
