Honey, I'm home!
Just got back from an amazing 10-day trip in Ireland. I went over to Dublin for St-Patrick's with a bunch of Oxford friends and ended up staying...an extra week after that. Saw Dublin, Wicklow County and Galway. Took day trips to the Cliffs of Moher (amaaazinggg!!!) and the Aran Islands (also amaaaazinggg!!!). There was much pubbin', Guinness-in', dancin', hikin' and even bikin' (me and physical activity...who'd have thought!). The vistas were great, the cities so much fun and the people incredibly friendly. Even the weather was great -- I somehow managed to get a teensy bit sunburned biking around the Aran Islands on my second-to-last day there! I already miss the rolling green Irish hills and the live traditional music bands in pubs. Aaaah. I might have fallen in love with the Erin. Just a little bit.
Hopefully I'll get around to doing some more in-depth posts about my trip, but in the meantime, here, have some pictures!
