Transportation – We are tracking inter-country transportation separately. In the case of Ireland, we did the Rail/Sail with train starting from London, England through Holyhead for the ferry to Dublin, Ireland (Irish Ferry) for $127.31. The listed costs are mostly related to our rental car during our time at the housesit in Adare (taxi to/from rental location, gas, tolls, etc).
Housing – Almost all of our housing was covered in Ireland, first with family covering costs in Dublin and then two weeks housesitting in Adare. In fact, in a first, we actually made money on housing because of a big tip from our awesome house-sitting hosts.
Gear – New shoes for Aaron (a fella needs new shoes now and then!).
