WHERE IN THE WORLD WEDNESDAY: SEARCHING FOR LEPRECHAUNS . . . IN THE BOTTOM OF A PINT GLASS???
If it's Wednesday, then it must be time for "Where in The World" Wednesday, hosted by the aptly named Classy in Philadelphia.
This week, my Where in the World Wednesday takes place in the capital city of Ireland . . . DUBLIN!!! :)
Or . . . in a pub!
Someone mentioned last week that I seem to travel quite a lot. I actually haven't travelled very much in terms of my whole life, but in the past few years I've managed to pop to quite a few places. Dublin is somewhere I spent a total of approximately ten hours . . . and most of those were in the pub!!! :)
Me and Mich went over to Northern Ireland in July 2008 to visit our old flatmate A. And while there, we decided to pop down to Dublin for the day. This necessitated an early start, a two hour coach trip across the border, and a keen eye on the time to make sure we caught the last coach back, but it was totally worth it!
This is the pub (one of many in the Temple Bar area) where we spent most of our time. You may be able to tell from my hair in the corner of the pic that it was a somewhat windy day!
Don't expect me to be able to tell you where any of these places are. (possibly Temple Bar again?) By the time we reached the pub I'd already had a drink or two in TGI Fridays (yes, we went all the way to a different country and ended up in a TGIs. Of couse...)
The three of us outside the pub . . .

Me and Mich posing in the middle of . . . er, a street in Dublin. (Help????)
We ate loads, drank even more and nearly missed the last bus back to Belfast. I believe Mich had to hold up the driver while I ran to the toilet.
I hope one day I get to go there for MORE than half a day!
(Last chance if you want to vote for me in the Scot Blogs awards. Voting closes at 8pm GMT tonight. If you like me, please go ahead and vote here. I don't believe for a minute I have a chance, but it's nice to look popular and worthy of the nomination!)
