Rena and I were stuck between a Mediterranean tour … Greece, Croatia, Turkey … and Ireland. We went with Ireland. Well, and Switzerland. But Ireland mostly. And I’m SO glad we did.
We were in Dublin on my birthday, and everyone was dressed up in costume. Needless to say, it was a blast. This pub in particular, was ridiculously fun. The live Irish electronic violin set was simply mind blowing. Oh, and I met Jake Gyllenhall.
On Halloween Day, we were headed to the tour bus to visit Nara and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bru na Boinne, or Newgrange, which predates the Egyptian Pyramids! For those of you who don’t know, I have a small obsession with visiting as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites as humanly possible. Anyway, on the way to the tour bus, we randomly stumbled upon the Ireland Halloween Day Marathon!
