Northern Ireland Salt Factory 1 Update 1

Posted: Saturday, June 15, 2019

We had a long first day—landed around 6:30AM local time after a 6.5 hour, overnight flight...after traveling and a long layover the day before. Needless to say, but everyone was pretty tired most of the day. BUT, we had a great time meeting Chris Grant and his wife, Leah, and Raymond who help run SALT factory. We eased into our first day here in Ireland and the goal was to simply keep our group awake in order to acclimate to our new time. We visited Hillsborough Castle and the park the surrounds it, which is also home to the Church of Ireland, which was built in the mid-1600’s. It was a BEAUTIFUL break in our day.

Now, we’re off to start Day 2 with orientation. More updates to come later.
