Drinking tea
Seldom sleeping
He is coming to see me…… eventually!

Now eight weeks into A Twitter Painting Cycle Tour of Ireland You can hear & See Ireland’s first digital nomad™ all while being a Class Study for students of the future.

You can follow week by week as told by his brother The Thirsty Gargoyle and learn about Eolaí: Painting Ireland through Social Media

I loved the Tweet from @AllanCavanagh

@eolai sleeps on the bike as he cycles. He stays in people’s houses to stay up all night painting.

For the latest peddling and weather info from where the man is at right now check Twitter – @eolai with the hash tag  #paintingtour

Now in Clew Bay… I think he might be tempted to stay…

At this rate it might be October before I see him.

Update on my Update:

Along the way @eolai/Liam has met some amazing people.  Some hosted him, fed and watered him – gave him tea, gave him beer or the stronger stuff if they had it.   Let him have a bed, though not all were slept in; 20 minutes shuteye on a couch and the paintbrushes were rearing to begin all over again.  They allowed him access to WiFi, it was what Liam most desired in order to update his blogs, deal with the torrent of messages on twitter and plan the next stage of the journey.  I think he packed three days into every 24 hours.

There was the lady in West Cork, totally unknown to @eolai who saw him sitting painting and arrived by his side with a pot of tea, a man size plate of sandwiches and I think there was a sweet bun or two to finish off.  She never gave him her name, but he was thrilled by her generosity.

Today he was mentioning the punctured tyres (see above) an another twitterer @aquaasho, sent this message back:

@eolai will send u down a couple on us. What type bike you on? DM me your address for next 24/ 48 hours.

Modern Social Media not alone allows us to communicate, it can bring out the best in people!
