Photo Friday: European Airspace Opens



Last Thursday, just a day after European airspace re-opened, we were taking a leisurely walk on the beach at Bettystown (30 minutes north of Dublin airport) when we spotted jet-trails in the sky above us. It was a welcome sign that things were returning to normal and that we’d be getting off the island soon.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    I cannot count the number of times a London local told me how quiet it was without the airplanes! We spent a lot of our 9 days in London outdoors, and really took full advantage of the “clear skies”

    That must have been a a relief- we were affected too as my husband had to go on rugby tour by coach instead of plane but let’s hope that it doesn’t flare up again in the height of the summer holiday season

    I wondered if folks really noticed the noise difference with the decrease in air traffic. I definitely notice it when traffic from Detroit’s airport gets re-routed over our neighborhood!

    When you aren’t traveling, extras days seem like a special gift but I can imagine that those extra travel days were a bit stressful at times. I hope you enjoyed it and I can’t wait to read more about your trip!
