Dublin.

Top of the morning.

Have I ever mentioned that I want to see the world but can't afford to see all of it right now? I never studied abroad and I never ventured on that obligatory post-grad Eurotrip; but when Continental Airlines alerts me of low-priced European travel destinations during non-peak season, I get my chance. I base my travel destination on the lowest fare. This year the least expensive European city to travel to was Dublin.







Dublin leaves me aching for delicious Leo Burdocks fish and chips; but the city left me feeling like a tourist. When I look back at these photos of Howth, this small fishing village outside of Dublin, I just think, "That was Ireland."

Real-life observation: It gets harder and harder to find a buddy to travel with now that everyone has working, family, and financial obligations. Thank God for one of my best friends, Leah, who, I have come to find out, will always be reliable for an impromptu trip out of the country. :)

  2. I love an impromptu trip like this! A friend and I did this a few years ago, we went to Buenos Aires. Also, I traveled to Ireland with my family during college and loved it. The countryside is amazing!

  6. I am in the same boat as you, never had the chance to study abroad and now I wish I did! Dublin is a beautiful city, my aunt and uncle visited a few years back and I saw their photos! I find it hard to travel too as many friends are dealing with work, family obligations, hope you'll enjoy more trips w/your friend Leah! So glad to discover your blog :D
