It's a rainy day in Dublin

We are all back, safe and sound, thank God. What an adventure.
We had a good trip back from Buenos Aries with no delays. Thanks to 'night nurse' tablets I had a good 8 hours sleep on the plane.
I got a wonderful welcome from my family who had the banner with them from the girls of St Mary's NS Fariview, thank you girls, I'll be in to see you soon.
The feeling of coming out of the baggage area of the airport to come through the gates and see my family will not be surpassed ever.
And so today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I can't help think my view on life will be different now, as I have experienced something special, it has been an extremely emotional journey, not to mention the scenery that I have experienced. One major point was to see the size of the Antarctica and to relaise how small you are. I might have only scratched the surface of the Antarctica but know that the experience of this trip will stay with me forever.
Thanks and love to all that experienced it with me.
