I understand what everyone is getting at...but, well, I'm the kind of person who, when in a situation like that likes to stick with people. I guess I just like to make the most of the time, I'm not sure. Maybe I don't do enough interesting things with other people :)

I'm happy with anything really.

Although I did spend some time alone this time, I prefer on this type of holiday to be with people as you've got others to enjoy your experiences with ... perhaps a lovely view, a pleasant place, a meal at Leo's or whatever.

I could lay on a hot sunny beach reading a book and listening to music by myself until the cows come home, but if I'm going to be out and about I much prefer company.

But everybody is different: some need more space than others. Some will want to create their own space each day or for a whole day while others will want to be part of a group for all/most of the time.

Each person needs to make their needs known: if someone wants to be alone at any point then they need to just say so rather than just withdraw as that'll only cause others to be unduly concerned when there may be nothing to be worried about.

I would love to, but most likely it will be another 2 years before I could afford it again... we'll see. :) I liked spending some time as a group and having some time to run about Bunbeg etc on my own - personally I got a good balance of both, but maybe that's because I explored Dublin and Galway alone beforehand.

Next time we have to order in Gaelic at Leo's! :mrgreen:

Aw, it bites being 14. :cry: I'd SO love to go to Ireland, and with you guys even more. But, my money and parents would never allow it.

At least I have you guys here, and that's a great thing! :wink:

I am hoping that this becomes an annual event. I want to take a trip after I complete my master's degree in 2007 or 2008.

I voted yes that I would be intrested in going... then I went on holiday without saying anything LOL

I would most definatly love to go. If I can't go for the 2006 pilgrimage, then I will make it to the 2007 one.... (G!!!!!)

I am a happy go lucky person when it comes to being in groups. In fact, I would rather have someone with me the entire time than to be alone. I am just that way... plus it is safer. There are a few things in Ireland that I do for a 100% fact want to see when I go but those can be worked out and I have a feeling that we would be very near those places anyway.

We'll just have to wait and see. :wink:

Wow! I love progressive rock, but especially Iona! :mrgreen:

Do you also like Kansas? Their song Distant Vision (from the Somewhere to Elsewhere album) leaves me wondering if they had been listening to their Iona albums when they came up with it. It is certainly about Celtic Christianity, and almost certainly about St. Patrick. If you PM me your e-mail address, I will try to make an MP3 of it for you, but it may be poor quality because it's about 9 minutes long.

hey Jim!

Cool that you're an Iona fan as well! No, I do not know Kansas....if they are sort of inspired by Iona, I'd love to hear that song!!!
Thanks
