Da Da Da Dublin
In all my wanderings abroad, it’s amazing what a little Wifi can accomplish. On a day tour, on a plane for eight hours, you go were you go and you take pictures where you are taken. But when you have actively to explore a city and no extra euro to spend on fancy international data plans, Wifi is a tool and a blessing.
I like to map out where I go to get lost. Bare with me here. I like being lost, taking it in, wandering down the side street. You never know what you may see or experience. However, I “Google Map” out my day and take screen shots of roads on the way to places that get great reviews by both locals and tourists. So it takes me the time everyone else spends on their hair to do a little digging.
We started our day at the first reasonable hour of our entire trip, 9 AM. With my trusty screenshots in hand we make our way over towards the trinity college area of Dublin for a spot of breakfast.
And by spot, I mean a full Irish Breakfast.
Next we wander through to the Powerscourt shopping center, a building that is riddled with beauty, and selling some of Dublin’s higher end merchandise. I take away some pictures and some small finds to pack in the ever-mounting suitcase of too many finds.
Sure it may just be a street with stores, but something about it feels alive and buzzing. We roll around from corner to corner powered by a sugary whirlwind of dough, a very popular trade of choice in Dublin as we found our way to get our fix in nearly every day.
More shopping with a three story Disney store included because everyone needs a little Disney
One of my favorite feels from the city was the sheer number of talented musicians, here is one such lass.
This is what I mean by alive! Just walking around, I picked up on many a local carrying around their instrument cases. Which only made sense in the evening when all the local bars lit up with the sounds of live music and authentic sounds of city life.
Stumbling through the beautiful St. Stephens Green and the campus of Trinity College, we worked up quite an appetite we did in fact make our way to such a place of music and fun for a bite of stew and a pint to call it a night on a fully stewed stomach
