Ireland: Night Falls

Michael Sampson - Currents

Did the security checks, got on the plane, flew to Ireland, found the taxis were on strike, so experienced the bus from the Dublin airport to the other side of the city. Got to my hotel in London last night at 10pm. Slept (fitfully). Up at 6am for breakfast, then took the bus back to Heathrow.

Insomnia in Ireland

Michael Sampson - Currents

Anyway, last night in Ireland I finally slept, and slept soundly. I've been in Europe for 12 days now; will be back in New Zealand in 4 days. With having to totally reverse my wake / sleep pattern due to the 12 hour time difference between where I normally live and where I've been working for the past few weeks, I've had very little sleep since getting here. Most nights I've lain awake for hours at a stretch. I'll remember Europe as the place where the nights are very long!
