Cheers to Dublin, Ireland

Ada and I enjoyed Meredith's company this last week... We endulged in fine dining and celebrating Meredith's 21st birthday! San Sebastian is known for its delicious (but pricy) cuisine, and we finally experienced the fancy stuff last week. Steak, smoked salmon, and crab stuffed peppers in a red sauce. YUM. We took Meredith out on the town on Tuesday, and I left Thursday night to celebrate St. Patrick's day in DUBLIN!

First stop: Guinness Factory. It felt like Disneyland for beer... Interesting and cool! Plus you get a free pint... Best Guinness I'd ever had!

On St. Patty's, we got up early to check out the parade! The streets were swarming with people decked out in their green gear. I almost felt like I was in Time's Square for New Year's Eve (minus Lady Gaga). And who doesn't love a parade? It was neat, more artsy than what I've seen in the US.

The celebration begins in Temple Bar!

Felix was kind enough to let Lauren and I take over his living room for a couple days... and he even showed us around the city!

If you wanna go all out for St. Patty's, Dublin is definitely the place to be. All in all, a successful trip!

And of course... song of the moment.
Even though I wasn't in Galway, it was close enough. Love this song

And just a side note... I'm gonna have to pretty much just start giving credit to Lauren for all my photos haha, at least half the ones on this post are hers! Thank goodness for her fancy camera and photo taking skills!!
