Sightseeing in Dublin- Guinness, Cathedrals and Sisters

Saturday, September 27, 2014

We visited Christ Church Cathedral... mainly just posing with the outside structure since we didn't feel like paying to enter a building. (Europe is expensive man.)


Such a gorgeous day- only one tiny cloud in the sky! 

Temple Bar is the "thing" in Dublin, so we popped by to nab some photos, but it was too crowded to bother trying to get a Guinness.

We visited a different, less crowded pub for Guinness and traditional pub fair. Thick, hearty soups, bread and fish and chips. It was a good call all around, because we were seriously HANGRY at this point. Pretty much the only time we all almost started fighting the entire trip. After we got some food in our bellies we were able to enjoy the live music and atmosphere and, you know, the fact that it was our last full day in IRELAND. 

...and yes. This photo shows that I don't really like Guinness. I pretty much stuck to ciders the whole trip. They were delightful. Don't judge me.

A Day in Dublin, Ireland

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

So, where exactly did I leave off with my photos... The Cliffs of Moher? Yes. I'm a terrible photo blogger. Apologies and the like. I will try and post the rest of my photos. Partly, because they're are beautiful and deserve to be seen, but also, because I'm really missing all the travel, the sights, the cities. And being with my two sisters. These photos were taken on a beautiful Monday we spent hoofing it around Dublin. Visiting the City Center, walking through the Medieval District, seeing St. Patrick's Cathedral, a little shopping and eating our required bagels and drinking coffee.

Listen: Fall 2014

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

In which I recommend to you music you should sample. Take my advice or not. It does not matter to me.

Colony House, When I Was Younger. 
Yes. These are Steven Curtis Chapman's kids. Their music is great... the more I listen, the more I enjoy it and appreciate the lyrics.

Gem Club, Breakers
Listen to the track Red Arrow. That one hooked me. Because I like sad, depressing music. And piano. 

Hey Marseilles, To Travels & Trunks

Volcano Choir, Repave
Justin Vernon from Bon Iver. 'Nuff said.

The Black Keys, Turn Blue
So good. So groovy. Love it.

There ya go. You're welcome. Or not. Whatevs.
