Glasgow to Belfast, Northern Ireland

Sing to me River LaganGlasgow to Ayr by train – bus to Cairnryan, Scotland and…

ferry to Belfast.

Today trendy, touristy and hip but filled with a tumultuous past.  Often referred to as “the troubles” the Catholics and Protestants fought hard from 1969 to 1998 (with sporadic turmoil until 2015).

In 1998 there were only 4 hotels – the Europa was and is the most bombed building in Europe – today a mighty 45 hotels stand proud and Belfast is touted as the 2nd safest city in the world next to Tokyo.

Still today 48 peace walls separate Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods – 25′ high up – some up to 3 miles long stretching a total of 21 miles.

Although peace is in the air the embers still are smoldering…

The stillness of the lake brings peace to my soul. In this stillness my mind becomes empty and my heart becomes full.  John Tew
