One thing I'm excited for in this trip is focusing less on the intricate travel details and opting for a more simplified, focused trip. Planning the route was super easy and it will be primarily straight forward train travel. All I have to worry about is filling my days with exploration and adventures.
I'm on the fence about purchasing a nice mirrorless camera for this trip or sticking with my point and shoot. I've switched back and forth between dedicated cameras and a cellphone and found that the dedicated camera works best for me. Cellphone shots are great in perfect lighting but sometimes the end result in less than adequate lighting leaves me dissatisfied.
I still plan on visiting Portland in August and Great Britain technically gets more rain than Ireland so my last post wasn't entirely a lie!
