This has nothing to do with writing or reading but this is my blog: I make the rules. And I just wanted to celebrate the fact that the Swansea Cork Ferry is now back in action. It's known as the Peoples' Ferry because when the original ferry service closed down it was brought back into life by the hard work and savings of a group of local people from Cork and Kerry and South Wales. This is its first year and there are special offers available now.
And thinking about it...the ferry service really does have something to do with writing. Get off and you'll be inspired by the Irish landscape. You won't be able to help yourself. Drive into the westering sun, into the wild and beautiful Beara Peninsular and onwards to the corduroy fields of Kerry and mountains the colour of rain. (See, it works.) Or sail in the other direction and you're in Dylan Thomas land
Plenty of time for reading too.... It's a 10 hour trip.
