I think your daughter Coyote will enjoy Belfast, the university area is lovely, some really nice housing around there to be found. My friend tells me that she has just managed to find a house to rent out in the country a bit, towards Moira, which is still only 15 miles away from Belfast centre.
We managed to miss the snow, which I'm kind of relieved about - as I'm only just getting over last years snow injury I obtained from sledging. (A close call, and a full years of osteopath and physio treatments - means I won't be rushing out in the snow for some time).
Only the dirty tired snow was left when we got there.
Queens University old building was absolutely gorgeous too.
Alison I didn't make it to the spud place, I can't remember eating much - the drink yes... oh and cheesy chips was my downfall.
Coyote, if when you come over here from Belfast, and GO are still running perhaps you could take advantage of the cheap flights. They go to Glasgow, London, Edingburgh, alicante, faro, barcelona, Bristol, Newcastle, Nice etc.
But getting from St. Louis is going to be the BIGGIE!
All the best...
