The waiting is over. Tomorrow (really: today) we’ll get up early, get ready, and make our way to the airport. It’ll be a long flight, the longest Pádraig has been on for five years.
There will be a few people who will be going with us, walking on the Cape, and walking in spirit. – If you want to join us on Wednesday and want to let us know, click here.
As it happens, a programme RTÉ’s Irish Language Channel TG4 did a few months ago, will be shown this Tuesday at 9.30 pm and, again, on Friday at 11.05 pm. It will also be available afterwards on TG4’s player.
I’m going to sleep now for a few hours. Starting tired is not ideal. I know. It’s exactly what happened five years ago. And we didn’t sleep (and eat) for a long time. I am so looking forward to spending this time with Pádraig. Preparing this trip was bordering on the insane. Everything took ages. Doing this in Europe is not easy. Going overseas is a whole different kettle of fish.
But tonight, it’s all looking good. And tomorrow, we’ll have a great and exciting day travelling. Sleep is completely overrated anyways.
