    Cool Can you help me correct this

    Last holidays Jan and I went to Ireland. The voyage from Holyhead made Jan sick (she hates water) but we arrived at Dublin at ten o’clock. Next we took a train to Waterford, where we stayed one day. Subsequently we travelled in bus to Cork. It’s a beautiful place! Next day we drove a rented car to Tralee and Limerick, and after lunch, when we were going to Galway the car was broken, so we must continue hitch–hiked. I wanted to know Aran Islands, so I made an excursion there on ferry. Meantime Jan preferred to visit the most interesting places in Galway. After that we flighted to Belfast and stayed there for five days, although one of then we visited Donegal on a rented car again, but this time it was a NEW car! Finally we got home by plane.

    Subsequently- as the text is fairly informal, why not use 'after that'
    car was broken- broke down
    Aran Islands- the
    flighted - flew

    I am sorry, my editing didn't appear properly. I wanted you to see the changes I made. I had deleted some words and added some other words. Plz use the following passage:
