Derry, Londonderry, Stroke city, The maiden city, Doire, the walled City, Doire Cholm Chille
Probably the place with most names for one town…
I’m away soon, and this time it’s for real. I know you’ve heard it all before Steve… and I’ve never been away longer then 5 months but wait and see, I’m not gonna come back this time!…. not this year anyway…
I’ve had a great time! No trouble at all…
Obviously liked it, since I arrived here for a holiday in March 2001. And now, 6 years later, I’m finally about to get out of here (havent been here the WHOLE time… done a wee bit of travelling every now and then)
It’s the Derry Vortex, it sucks you in and wont let go… I’m telling ye! Derry City Independent Hostel, my home all these years.
And all the cool and interesting people I’ve met here. The stories we shared over a couple of pints of the black stuff 😉
BBQ’s in summer.., going crazy on Halloween, paddys day or the jazz festival…. dancing, anytime anywhere.
It’s a good life… but not All the time, how I look forward to no more slamming doors, no more dishes, no more drunk people getting me up and no more showers to scrub or beds to make, wheehaa!
Gonna miss it though, only a little bit… sometimes.
Thank you Steve thank you Kylie! For being the best bosses, and letting me run the hostel and do all the things I want to do my way … 😉
