After leaving Edinburgh and our jobs this week, we took a quick trip to Dublin.

We arrived at Thursday lunch time, and after wandering along O'Connell street, we enjoyed our first pints of Guinness with lunch. We later met up with my friend Claire, and then we all met for dinner with Alex - our flatmate in Christchurch last year. We had a nice (but pricey!) dinner in the touristy "Temple Bar" area.

On Friday we wandered around the lively Grafton Street, where we had coffee and scones in an oriental cafe, and watched the buskers. Later we looked around the famous Trinity College, before meeting again with Claire and Alex for an amusing literary pub tour around the city.

We sadly had to say goodbye to Dublin on Saturday morning, after a quick goodbye to Alex.

We are now heading back to London for a couple of days, for a farewell dinner with Angelina and Scott, and some drinks with Jess. We fly out to New York on Tuesday.
