It’s Cold Everywhere!

So it’s snowing/raining here, really cold back in Oklahoma, our next destination is the UK and they are having crazy snow!  I’m wearing my Hawaiian shirt out of spite.
Speaking of our next destination, we have the final destinations mapped out.  We’re spending a week in Ireland, hopefully in the western portion of the country (Galway or Ennis areas) so we can spend some time in the lush countryside and see the Cliffs of Mohor (also known as the Cliffs of Insanity from The Princess Bride!).  After our week in Ireland, we fly to London.
Britain and Wales is going to be a flurry of activity.  We’re spending time (so far) in London, Cardiff, Salisbury (gotta see Stonehenge), and Oxford.  People who know say we must see Bath as well, but I’m not sure if our travel budget will allow us to rent a car or see all of the places we want to see.  It’s not enough time!  I guess it never is.
Indi’s been under the weather for the past few days, so not a lot has gone on in Prague.  We’ve spent most of our time trying not to spend money; with our future travel dates set in stone, we’d hate to be in a situation where we run low on money and not have a way out.  In fact, there are several day trip destinations here in the Czech Republic we’ve been putting off and hopefully we’re able to make them happen.  We also want to see a hockey game here before we go.  Curse you, clock!  Our awesome flatmates are keeping us entertained, though.  And the food is still amazing.  Speaking of that, yes, I do have a ‘New Foods’ list for December.  I’ll get it up in the next day or two, as I neglected it for about a week and have some catching up to do to make sure it’s accurate.
Oh, and finally…I can’t tell you how excited I am to hear about all the airport security changes/ restrictions/ precautions that are undoubtedly going to cause headaches for this final leg of the journey.  An airport in California was shut down entirely due to a suspicious substance being found, which ended up being a few jars of honey.  Yaaay.

About rhysfunk

Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world. Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa. Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
