    Todays tour

    October 1, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    After getting lost for a hour I found the Guinness storehouse. What an amazing place! Learned how to pour a pint the right way and now I'm certified. The city is on fire with energy as there is a final football match on tonight. I have never seen so many men in one place in all my life. They're everywhere. Where are all the women? Check out the "bin the poo" picture, means pick up your dog crap and has a toxic sign on the back. Enjoy the photosRead more

    What a stellar day! Beautiful sunshine and spectacular views. Went through the the mountains where Excalibur, Saving private Ryan, Braveheart, The Vikings and PS I love you were all filmed. Magnificent! Also saw a private cabin owned the guiness' nephews where only stars go for private relaxation. What a lesson in history! Love the signs here! Check out the new dog sign. They don't Jess around. Stayed tuned for more-just having a pub lunch of fish and chips.Read more

    October 3, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Checked into the Spire hostel today and am rooming with 7 other females. Not sure how much sleep I will get. Out and about Dublin today and found the shopping district. Was enticed by the inexpensive bra and panty sets at only 5 euros. Will wait until I get to Slovenia for that. Booked my flight for the 5th and am meeting Christy there. A couple of shots from yesterday's tour attached and also today's walkabout.Read more

  • Day31

    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!
