Can I start by saying that I am delighted to see that over 8000 people have had the great taste to visit my Belfast page. Amazingly not everyone has found it infantile or offencive. If you are amused, I would love to hear from you. If not, lets just keep that our little secret. I hope it raises a smile if nothing else.
I always think that the hardest travel page you will ever write is about your own home town. Especially when you have grown up and lived there most of your life. So I have decided to look at Belfast as if I were a tourist. Looking again at the things I take for granted and seeing Belfast through fresh eyes.
There are those who may argue that I need glasses for these new eyes, but I guess until you visit Belfast, you will never know.
I hope you enjoy and that my images, both visual and mental, help you question, if not get rid of, any preconceptions you may have about Belfast.
My thanks to those I have 'borrowed' pictures from. Consider that you have inspired me and share in both the credit and the blame for this page. You are my muses.
In the picture above we find Mari, a mad Estonian discovered roaming the streets of Belfast. We have never met, but she has some great pics of Northern Ireland. As she is wearing a nice red top, she will be our tour guide for part of this virtual journey. I have asked her to keep her arms down for future pictures, as she has somehow managed to clear what is normally the busiest street in Belfast.
Behind her is the City hall, originally built as The White Linen Hall in the late 1800's.
Linen, ship building and leprechaun production were Belfast's three largest industries at this time. Sadly both Linen production and ship building are virtually no longer in existence.
Do let me know what you think of the finished article and feel free to tip your tour guide :-)
