There was not a ton that happened on this trip. It was a lot of driving and site seeing. We stayed with a woman we met at a hostel in Oslo, Norway for a few days and that was an experience! We were able to see a lot of the country and Braden even got some rain that he very much wanted (because it's supposed to be rainy in Ireland).
We started off with a quick stay over in Dublin. The hostel we were in was in the basement below the entrance and we could hear every footstep, but we were tired and I slept pretty well. I left my sunglasses (on my head below) at the restaurant. I also got to drink Bulmer's Irish Cider again! :)
From Dublin, we went on Braden's part of the vacation and took Bus Eireanne down to Waterford to see the Crystal factory.
From there we had a layover in Cork and then we got into Killarney in time for some supper at an Irish pub and then off to bed. In our room was a couple from Washington (recent grads) and a boy from Lakeville who now goes to Bradley University in Illinois. Crazy small world. We had a convo with them for a few hours and then went to bed.
The next day we went on an adventure into the Dingle Peninsula. We had a tour guide who sang to us and it was a beautiful day. So many pretty pictures and of course excitement in Ireland!
I also took a quick video:
We stopped int he cute town of Dingle that kinda reminded me of Grand Marais. We walked around with some other people from our tour group.
There is a town dolphin named Funghi...I guess he shows up and tourists like him. I rode on his statue.
That was the end of our trip to the peninsula, after that we went to Mandy's house from Killarney to Galway!
