Day 31 - 33: Bad Day to Fly and Downpatrick

We left the US on the day of the Heathrow liquid bomb scare. Luckily we were flying directly to Belfast instead of going through Heathrow like normal. Our flights were a bit late taking off, but we made pretty good time to both New Jersey and Belfast. We arrived and had to wait for an hour for a rental car, which was kind of inconvenient.

Our first day was filled with naps and getting our body clocks adjusted. The next day we headed out on a little sightseeing tour to Downpatrick to see the grave of St. Patrick.

We had a nice time and we were excited to pick Jonny up that day, but unfortunately with the fiasco at Heathrow caused his flight to be over 4 hours late and he missed his connecting flight. He did manage to stay at his friend Quincy's house and meet his fiance Ali. He made it to Belfast on the very first flight of the morning and we were all over joyed to see him!
