Caching on a work trip in Nebraska

I has a quick trip up to the Omaha area for a presentation, and I am going to spare the details of all the things that went wrong with the travel arrangements. Except for a good kudos - my wedding ring fell off and I didn't notice until I was back in DFW in another terminal and American Airlines was able to find and bring it out to me. Woot!!!

The morning of the presentation, my co-worker and I had some extra time, so he asked if I wanted to geocache (my co-workers know of my all states goal), so we did find a few. And since the hotel we were in is in Iowa, I even got a new state. However, the Iowa one was the easiest of the bunch - the other two were much neater.

Chilling in Glasgow

Evan and I spent a lazy day in Glasgow, mainly enjoying the hop-on, hop-off bus. But we did take the chance to explore the beautiful City Chambers, where we found a cache (The Stone that Built Glasgow - City Chambers). We also had some fun with our gnome travel buddy.

We also toured a church that had been restored.

Giant's Causeway and Belfast

While we did find a geocache in Belfast, I would be lying to say that this was more than an afterthought. There were some changes to the itinerary of the trip, and Belfast was added as a port. CJ was immediately on board for heading out the Giant's Causeway, and THAT was the big highlight of the day. What a FANTASTIC spot. I want to come back to spend more time here - as well as several other places we passed that just look like fantastic spots to visit. I loved Iceland, but this area...it was probably my favorite stop.

First off, don't argue, and go to Giant's Causeway. It really is that awesome.

Once back in the city, we grabbed lunch (Made in Belfast) and a quick geocache (Callender Street).
