Well it's day 2 now but I'll a bit about day 1 in Dublin. We flew in at about 11. I think we were very tired (as we didn't sleep much on the plane) but didn't really notice until we dropped our stuff in a locker at the Avalon House and went to a pub (Toner's) for a couple pints. Half cut, very hungry and very tired we ate some chips covered in salad dressing (it hurt afterward) and checked into our room. We then promptly slept through the prime Dublin drinking hours. When we woke (about 5 hours later) we went in search of a grocery store. We found a Cost Cutters near our hostel but instead of getting cheap food we somehow ended up at another pub. At the Vat House we discovered that our favourite whisky is a single malt, 16 y/o Bushmills. On the way home we bought more chips, but wisely declined the dressing, and went back to the Avalon for cards and a movie on the zune.
The next morning (actually about 12:30) we missed our free breakfast and got dressed. We haven't decided on our next move today but I have a feeling there will be a pub involved!

We live and work on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada but travel feeds our soul. We can only live in paradise for so long before our desire to explore must be satisfied. Past adventures have seen us tramp around Europe for six months, live/work/travel around the beaches of Australia for another six months, Beijing, Colombia, the madness of India, all throughout Canada/USA closer to home and (comparitively) boring all-inclusive trips to Mexic... full info
