The last time I brought you with me on my travels abroad, we were in Spain, which was completely fabuloso, delicioso, magnifico, bello, etc, etc. I spent 6 whole days traversing through Madrid and Barcelona…but that wasn’t even half of my spring break.
It was actually kind of ridiculous–what with no class on Fridays, my spring break ended up being a whopping 19 days long. That included a national holiday (off on Monday) to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. (?!) I like the way they think.
Anyway, I got back from Spain for a day, and the next morning…
My parents came knocking on my door!
I gave them the abridged version of the Dublin tour, since it’s a pretty small city (Madrid has more people than the entire population of Ireland combined!) and it was looking a little gloomy. We went to St. Stephen’s Green park
Showed them the main street in Dublin, Grafton St.
Took a stroll around Trinity College
And made sure to document the signature yellow double decker buses.
I’m probably a horrible pseudo-Irish person (since we spent less than 24 hours in Dublin before flying off…oh and I missed St. Patrick’s Day) but just you wait until you see where we were headed. Hands down, my favorite part of my semester.
