Nett, Zeiteinteilung schlecht

Für jemanden dem schon hier beim Busfahren schlecht wird, ist die Tour garantiert Nichts, da man über Torf fährt und der Bus sehr stark schaukelt und hüpft. Die Zeiteinteilung war leider nicht sehr gut, der erste größere Stopp (30 min) war ein kleines Dorf, nicht genug Zeit für das Museum dort, aber diese 30 min fehlen dann bei Kilmore Abbey, da man dieses in 1,5 std. nicht schafft, vorallem wenn man noch etwas dort essen will. Von dort weg kommt man aber auch nicht, um sich die Landschaft ringsrum anzusehen, man sitzt also fest. Die Bucht von Galyway haben wir wegen einer Sperrung überhaupt nicht gesehen und waren ca. 1,5 Std zu früh am Bahnhof, ohne Betreuung.
