I’m writing this post while I sit at the airport in Dublin waiting to see if I’ll be able to get on the flight or not. I wouldn’t mind staying another day, but I do think it’s time to go back home and face reality once again.
My Trip to Dublin: A Dream Come True
For as long as I can remember Dublin or better, Ireland in general, has been my number one place to visit. For some reason I’ve always been drawn to this country. I’ve always been proud of calling myself half Canadian and half Italian, but I’ve also always liked the fact that I’m a little bit Irish as well.
I got to Dublin five days ago and during this time I’ve learned a few things about the city. I came to know it a little bit, by the 4th day I could actually walk around without feeling too lost. The people here are very nice, on our first day in Dublin, an older man noticed our lost expressions and asked us if we needed help without us even asking anyone! I haven’t had that happen to me in a very long time, as I’m used to the go-go-go pace that is part of the Toronto city life.
While visiting Ireland I came to notice that they also jaywalk a lot, actually, almost every single time. They did it so much, that we started joking around telling each other we would become real Irish if we just nonchalantly jaywalked.
While these are some of the small things I noticed in this city, one thing that people don’t really talk about is the amazing food that you can find all over the town. I never heard Ireland being famous for great food so that wasn’t something I was looking forward to, but then we went into one restaurant, and then we tried a second one and a third one and we soon realized that you can’t really go wrong when wandering around in search of food. You’re bound to find good food in Dublin no matter what.
Here are just a few of the photos that I took while in Dublin. I’ll be posting some more very soon and those ones are all about an amazing tour we took! You’ll see them soon.
