It’s done. Vacation over. Since I’m writing this from work, I guess I can tell it really is. I came back from my wonderful trip to the US last tuesday, but I left the day after for a getaway in Ireland. You know, I had the rest of the week off work and it seemed to me like a waste spending it home. So I headed to my favorite European Country.
Besides, I didn’t even had to pay for an accommodation. I was guest of one of my oldest and dearest friends, who’s been living there for twelve years now. I stayed at her house in Sword, a nice little village close to the airport.
This was my fifth time in Dublin (it feels like home now) so I took it very easy, ’cause I didn’t have to go visit anything. I just had a couple of strolls around the city center, and went visit Dalkey, which is a cute little town south of Dublin, with a nice little castle and a hill from which you can get a wonderful view of all the Dublin Bay.
Other than that, I spent the rest of the time hanging out around the village (it’s growing fast by the way, it’s getting a little town) where I found a great pub and found out Guinness has produced a new kind of beer, the Hop House. Try it if you get the chance, it’s excellent. That aside, as always I spent some time admiring the real Irish star. The sky. I think everyone should see the Irish sky at least once in a lifetime. No words to describe it.
I have to say it’s been a great getaway. But now I have to go back to my ordinary life. Cause I got one if you’re wondering. I’ve been asked if I even work, several times this month. I do. I guess I can say I’m lucky to have a good job which leaves me enough time to have some vacations from time to time.
That said, I’ll leave you to my last pictures and you’ll be hearing from me soon probably, cause I think I got plenty of things to write about after this beautiful month of August. Take it easy!
I took these while heading to the supermarket. Here’s what it’s like the Irish weather. In three minutes: wind, rain and wind, rain and sun together, a rainbow, then quiet again. Just awesome.
