We returned to our hotel base in time for dinner where most of us got together to relax, celebrate and bid farewell to this historic and beautiful city of Berlin. On the following morning it was up early once again, breakfast, pack and reluctantly set out for the airport for our flight home , Wonder of wonders, the sun was shining when we arrived in Dublin. Having enjoyed a lovely meal in the “Shamrock Lodge” in Athlone on the way home, we arrived safely in Ballinasloe tired but satisfied. The trip was intensive, enjoyable and educational. We must now decide where our next destination will be for our 2015 European city break.
