Day 1:Prep for the Ghost Tour actually started long before the trip began. For weeks, I scoured the internet for any and all information I could find about Ireland, looking for picture galleries, YouTube videos and pages with Irish history. I really couldn't look up information about specific locations that we would visit while in the Emerald Isle, because the tour company didn't publish the itinerary until right before the trip. While I normally like to know absolutely everything before going on a long journey like this, I was still confident that it would be a great time, taking into consideration how fun their other trips were. Knowing that we would be traveling in both Ireland and Northern Ireland, I made sure to exchange my American dollars for Euros and British pounds about a week before the trip, so I wouldn't have to worry about finding currency on the run. During previous trips, I had found that the fast-paced nature of these tours doesn't leave you with a lot of free time to track down a currency exchange or Western Union, so taking care of that little detail beforehand really paid off. I am also glad that we decided to take advantage of the rental cell phone deal that the tour company offered us. There was no charge to rent it. We only had to pay to ship the phone, along with any outgoing calls/texts (incoming calls were free). Having the rental phone along on the trip was invaluable, allowing us to keep in touch with family back home.
