My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "D" — Some places I've been starting with "D"
Des Moines, Iowa
Last first, we loved Dublin. But our first visit was just a hotel stay in the spring of 2009 and then after touring Ireland (stayed at B&Bs) coming back on an emergency flight from Dublin (I fell at Powerscourt Gardens, just south of Dublin--to read my blog entry about that fall, click here).
We did come back again and walked the city Dublin in the fall of 2009.
Excerpt from my blog post mentioned above (link): This is the young lady who helped me at Powerscourt Garden Estates. She was sitting at the top of the steps having a smoke.
She and another young man saw me tumble, they both came running to help me back up. They offered help me to the first aid place but I had to find Mrs. Jim first.
For our Denmark visit, we flew over from London, U.K, to Copenhagen for a Baltic Sea cruise on the Princess line. We spent two days and three nights before embarking and then another day at the end of the cruise before flying back to London.
Our first day we did Copenhagen in, just walking around, seeing the sights and doing what tourists should do. The second day we rented a car and drove to the north of Copenhagen and back. It was beautiful country but around Copenhagen it was mostly flat and very wet with all it's ponds and lakes.
The third day was at the end of our cruise and we did the things we didn't get done the first day. Jim's Denmark (click on them to see) Post 1, Post 2, Post 3

- I am in my fifth series of Alphabe Thusday. I intend to put on some pictures of my travels when I can find a few. Some are in albums, pictures I've taken before a digital camera came to me. I haven't scanned any yet.
Have a terrific day. ☺
Most weeks you've been to somewhere I've been, so I can remember my own visit at the same time.
But this week, it's all new to me....so this time I get to dream about next time....:-)
How is Mrs. Jim's healing coming along?
I would say this was a delightful link for the letter D but it just makes me worry about you.
I'm silly like that!
But Happy New Year!
And thanks for linking!
