    Slàinte to Dublin!

    September 8, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 59 °F

    Hi guys, it's Rupal! This is my first blog post so let's see how this goes...

    Right now we're on a bus to Galway which is in the west of Ireland to see the more scenic side of the country where we'll spend two days. We woke up at 5:30am this morning to pack our bags and walk to meet the bus which was a bit difficult after a beer and whiskey tour last night! So I guess we say so long to Dublin or Slàinte to Dublin which means cheers in Irish Gaelic.

    OK I need to take a second to get off track because right now our bus driver is singing a song and cracking jokes in the thickest Irish accent while everyone is mostly asleep. I guess he likes to hear himself speak which I'm ok with because the Irish accent is awesome!

    Speaking of accents, yesterday we spent the afternoon in a local pub after a walking tour of the city to rest our legs and hydrate with a pint where we people watched the locals and tried to make sense of what they were saying; which is more difficult than you think!

    It's fun to remove yourself from the situation and think if we weren't in that pub or in Ireland or on this trip the locals we see everyday would be doing the same thing; we just get to witness them in their natural setting and see what their lives are like!

    A round up of day one

    July 15, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    We reached our hotel by 11am, dropped off our bags and went out to see some of the sights of Dublin. First stop was City Hall then onto Dublin Castle where we booked a guided tour for mid-afternoon (which was very interesting). Then we walked to Christchurch Catheral which had a pop-up food village operating within its grounds.
    We had a very tasty lunch at The Larder then walked along the River Liffey in the afternoon, seeing lots of bridges , including Samuel Becketts bridge (see photo), and the Famine Sculpture.
    We had an interesting self-guided tour of the Guinness Storehouse which ended with a pint of the 'ruby red' ale in it's Gravity Bar on the 7th floor with 360 degree views of the city.
    We ate dinner in the Old Storehouse in Temple Bar then listened to live Irish music by 3 chaps, 1 on guitar, 1 on flute and the other on the handheld drum - clapping and singing along were aided by another pint of Guinness!
    We returned to the hotel through the very lively Temple Bar area.

    Day two was a long one!

    July 15, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F

    Fuelled on a full Irish breakfast, we visited St Patrick's Cathedral before taking a stroll around St Stephens Green then looking in the shops along Grafton St. After a slice of delicious cake at quirky Dolce Sicily, we took a guided tour in the Little Museum of Dublin then walked around the Government buildings and Trinity College before returning to the hotel and getting changed for our night at the theatre.
    According to Allison's phone step count we did 24.100 steps today which was marginally up on the 23,600 we managed yesterday.

    Last day in dublin

    October 4, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Spent the day on a 5 hr trek. Found where Oscar Wilde lived and a statue of him across the street. See the shots. Went the museum of natural history today and saw some very interesting species. Irish deer which no longer exist had the rack span of 8ft across. They put our moose to shame. Couldn't take many photos because I ran out of space on my phone. Had to dump a couple of apps and clean up the mail. Having my last Ginny as I take off tomorrow at 6 am to catch my flight to Ljubljana, Slovenia. So excited because there will be some good wine there and it will be cheaper. Ireland in general is expensive.
    Irish facts: I have only seen two ginger here the whole time; everyone smokes and looks twice their age; Irish people yell all the time; the streets are littered with garbage; there are a lot of homeless on the street (mainly looking for $ for beer; the fashion is adidas track pants (yes even the women)! The Irish people are incredibly helpful, happy and can't wait to tell you their life story. They have incredibly good manners and a hilarious sense if humour. I have laughed a ton!
