Hopping on a plane to Dublin from Vienna was really, really exciting. I could see the huge AerLingus airbus through my gate’s window and was so ready to board and see Ireland for all that it was. After boarding, I proceeded to sleep for the duration of the entire flight until it was time to look out the window and see the Irish Sea and the green country that we were approaching. It was breathtaking…
Kristina was arriving an hour after me so I took the 16a bus to our hostel, The Times Camden Place to settle in and unwind for a little bit.
Shortly after arriving, Kristina found me and we were off to explore Dublin. Two Gators who had met in Poland who just so happened to also blog for the UFIC that were now traveling together in Ireland…can’t beat it 🙂 It’s safe to say that we bonded instantly…check out our cool pictures and of the fish pedicures (check Kristina’s blog for more info on that):
A gallery tour (first beers in Dublin=free!)
After our relaxing dinner, it was time to kick it at our hostel and rest up for another day in Dublin!
Since I had planned for us to tour Dublin with Sandemans new EUROPE, we did! We were also very lucky that we did not have ANY rain the entire time we were there…let’s just say we were just in time for “Ireland’s summer.” Have a peek at what we got to see for over four hours!

And then we were off to Guinness…
And then to have a meal…finally!
The place that would rival Chipotle, Moe’s and Tijuanna Flats:
Absolute sweet potato heaven:
And to conclude from our time in Dublin, it was well-spent and we got to see a whole lot…and get our Irish Pub experience at O’Neill’s to listen to traditional Irish music, hang out with the Dubliners and get the Dublin drinking experience (a few rounds of Guinness bought by locals that you absolutely can’t refuse). It was quite fun and a truly awesome time in Dublin!
