"Strabane-maybe the maddest thing I've ever done!" Strabane by BlueBeth
Strabane Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 13 photos
This is probably not the smartest thing I've ever done in my life but it turned out to be a good one. A friend of mine who came from NI had moved back there the previous year, and had just told me he was moving to Sri Lanka. What's a girl to do? I jumped on a plane and headed for Belfast. So I'm on the plane thinking I have no idea where he lives, no idea where the airport was in relation to the City, no idea where Strabane was... What a bloody stupid idea! So I landed in Belfast at about 10 pm and called him. He said he was on his way into work and I told him that he couldn't as he'd have to pick me up from the airport... Little did I know that Strabane is almost the other side of Northern Ireland. He was not best pleased!
Suffice to say he pulled up at the airport, a couple of hours later, flung open the door to the car and yelled Get in! Probably not the most brilliant idea when you've pulled up next to an armed officer but hey ho!
Obviously he was actually rather pleased to see me and we spent a great few days together before I had to come home. Strabane is a beautiful place set in glorious countryside and I really loved it.
