Weekly Frequency Hello to readers in Galway! It’s always interesting when the stars make “confrontation” their default setting.

But that doesn't make it sound anywhere near as awesome as it actually is, so here's a blog about it. If you intend to visit this place in the near future, maybe don't read this blog. These photos make this place look crappy, but that's just because I didn't realize I'd be blogging about Wizard Quest, so the camera I took along wasn't really up to the job. Anyway, this is where our adventure started: in a library room with talking, mystical plasma screen picture frames. Once the mystical plasma screens had explained our mission to us (something about freeing four wizards trapped in elemental realms) this bookcase opened up into a "vortex tunnel." And a mirror maze...
