This is a day I've been looking forward do ... I'm off to visit our Sanctuary in Ireland to meet the staff and donkeys.
On arrival at Bristol Airport, I managed to set the alarm off when walkign through the metal detector. After having all my luggage inspected I was then searched from head to foot before finally being given the all clear... it was my steel capped boots!
After boarding the plane, it wasn't long before we were heading down the runway and up in the air. I had a window seat, but for most of the journey there was nothing to see but dense cloud. Looking round for something to do, I found the inflight magazine and flipped it open and what did I see ... a photo of two donkeys!
It hardly seemed as if we had been in the air five minutes before we were beginning the descent into Cork Airport. We dropped out of the cloud and had a lovely view of the sea which looked very calm with a clear blue sky. How different to what we left behind us.
Having never been to the Sanctuary before, I'm really looking forward to take a walk around and get a feel of the place.
