A Taxi, Bus, Plane and a train! Made it to LONDON!!!

I left my hotel this morning at 7am in the pouring rain - taking a taxi to the bus station where I caught the Shannon Airport bus. You would think that a country with more rainy days then not would have a roof over their bus station!! I packed my rain coat and umbrella in my suit-case thinking I would not be needing them today -- NOTE TO SELF : Leave raincoat and umbrella in backpack and handy when in Ireland and London!! By the time I got on the bus I was soaked through, and so was my luggage, which I found out is not waterproof. I looked around and found all the women were as wet as me and they simply did not care, so I took up the attitude of the locals and decided I too did not care I was wet! Good news is I caught an express bus and shaved an half hour off my trip, The airport in Shannon must be the smallest one I have ever been to! It's also international. It's only 6 hours from O'Hare to Shannon - so I'm told!

Thank goodness the rain stopped before we boarded the plane... because the walk to the plane was outside too!
