Last Day in Ireland

Yesterday afternoon we saw everyone off at the Dublin airport. We spent the night hanging out with Cristin, her boyfriend, and Mosbey in the Temple Bar district.

Dublin – Day 2

Today was our first full day in Europe. We woke early to go to O’Connell Street to buy tickets for the “hop-on hop-off” bus tour. We were too early (a first for Jen) so Jen used her handy-dandy WiFi detector (thanks Boris!) and found wireless at a cute café on O’Connell Street. After some terrible […]

Dublin – Day 1!

We landed in Shannon this morning at 6am local time. We had a short layover before our 30-minute flight to Dublin. It was sunny when we touched down at 8:25am. Despite getting a few hours of sleep on the plane, Kendra and I were exhausted. Our first mission was to find the correct bus that […]
