A Day in Dublin
Hello my lovelies! Okay, so I think I should confront this crucial issue before continuing any further: it feels like I've blinked and been catapulted through time; it's September already!? Cue the witty originals on Facebook proclaiming they should heed Greenday's lyrical advice UGH. Perhaps it's the dawning of a new academic era, or the steady changing of the seasons, but September always feels like a new start for me. However, I was adamant to send off the summer in style so on Saturday my mum, Martin and myself took a day trip to Dublin's fair city.
Of course we tended to all your typical touristy activities - visiting Carroll's Irish souvenir shop which had a lovely green theme goin' on, loitering around The Temple Bar pub and becoming a little too snap happy with my camera, and of course savouring some of the legendary black stuff - Guinness. In a very unfashionably Irish way, the weather was actually quite pleasant, not a whip of wind or raincloud in sight! Dublin is brimming with so many quaint little boutiques and charming cafes that no matter how many times I visit, there's always something new to explore and experience. All in all, it proved a brilliant way of reeling in the summer - to visit the capital of Ireland felt like a mini holiday in itself!
