Flying into Dublin! Got to love the cheap Ryanair flights 😛
I arrived in Dublin and the weather was fantastic! After dropping my stuff off at the hostel I set out to explore. One thing I noticed quite quickly was an awesome reminder of home. Its the only one in town that I spotted so it was just sheer luck I found it 🙂
So while walking around I came across some large pedestrian only streets. I love that! And Dublin had many of them! Actually, Europe in general had many of them as you’ll see in pics to come. So on the these streets there are restaurants, pubs & bars (I was in Ireland afterall 😛 ), shops, theatres, and of course buskers!
I came across the Art Gallery and decided to check it out. Other than the lobby I wasnt allowed to take pictures inside, but I must say it was fantastic! If you go to Dublin, make sure you check it out. They had some amazing pieces in there. You know, I’m not a huge art person, but I’m slowly getting more and more into it. At the least I’m really liking the great masters. Oh oh and they had some old drawings that were done for a really old copy of some fairytales, not the brothers grimm stories but …..ah I can’t remember who. But it was great too 🙂
Another thing that was really good in Dublin was
I kind of Dublin as a smaller, cleaner, less diverse London. And like London, it had some nice parks and areas to just sit down and relax. Enjoy the weather and just chill.
Now Dublin really does have a lot of pubs and bars and whatnot. And most ppl tend to go to those at night. At least the other ppl at the hostels. Since thats not my thing, I looked around for what I could do. And I found this! I’m a big theatre fan and I’m a bit Shawshank Redemption fan so it turned out great!
Dublin also has one of the oldest universities in Europe so, I don’t know. The geek in me had to go check it out. Plus it was like a 5min walk away from my hostel.
Another thing I really like in cities is when they have rivers flowing through them. They make the cities look so nice!
So I stopped for a minute somewhere to get my bearings. It was a particularly hot day and then I looked down and the cement was melting underneath me! It was just this one small area, so I don’t know what kind of weird cement they used there, but eh, I guess I left a mark in the city now 🙂
So my UK trip was just amazing. Although my time was limited I feel I packed in a ton. The people everywhere were friendly and the cities were beautiful. AND UK weather was incredibly kind to me. 🙂
Next stop, Berlin! That will have to be a big post because Berlin was one of my favourite cities, I absolutely loved it!
