Ireland, Intro.

We arrived in Dublin the day after the biggest rugby match in Ireland and we left the day before it's grandest holiday, St. Patrick's Day. Once we unpacked and got our bearings on a map, we set out to make the most of our 6 day vacation by exploring as much of the Dublin Bay as possible. Our first order of business? Explore our neighborhood

by discovering the local market (buy some Goo food) and pharmacy (examine european beauty products).

 If you've ever been to Europe or any foreign country for that matter, you know what fun it is to look at the packaging on food items

 and local flavors.
 I always gravitate to the baking isle, then look at the chippies and finally the candy isle.

 Then we walked to the city center

and through the gorgeous Georgian neighborhoods, past all the painted doors and ornate iron fences.

  1. LOVING this!! I was wondering when your trip was! :)

    I'm totally the same...I think my favorite part of any international trip is hitting up the market. In both Ireland and France, I found that their markets were so small and charming. Much less overwhelming than American markets!

    Can't wait to read more! :)
