Martin

Ok so I have to write you and tell you of this pretty funny story of when we were in Ireland. We had a driver from our new hotel pick us up at the old hotel so that we wouldn’t have to worry about a cab or taking the bus or train or anything. The drivers name was Martin, a true Irishman. So on the way to the new hotel Martin was telling us about where famous people lived and some of the history of Ireland and just some interesting facts as we passed by certain locations. Well the roads as we got toward the hotel weren’t very forgiving. They were barely a car and ½ wide and had many blind spots as you came up the hill and around corners. I think that Martin could tell that we were a little scared as he drove up on the sidewalk to escape getting hit by oncoming traffic. So as Martin is maneuvering his way around these curvy blinding roads all of a sudden you hear him go, Weeee…… You know like you would if you were a little kid on a ride? It was the funniest thing ever and we all started laughing. He just knew that by him being like we were on a roller coaster ride we might ease up our fears a little bit.
I think after that Martin became our new best Irish friend.
