In October of 2014 my roommate and I planned a two country trip for our half term holiday. The first half of the week we spent in Ireland, to visit my cousin who was studying there. We flew into Dublin on the most terrifying flight of my life. By the time we landed my roommate and I were clutching on to each other for dear life. As our plane was descending it encountered rough turbulence. In addition to this the plane was rocking side to side. In addition to THIS the plane was rocking forward and back. TERRIFYING!

We boarded the bus at the airport to take us to Waterford.

Up early the next day to get on the bus to Cork. We took the city bus out to Blarney to visit Blarney Castle.

We ran into this chocolate store across the street from Blarney Castle. They had the most delicious chocolate bars. I bought a dark chocolate bar with dried strawberry in it.

Blarney Castle!

That hole at the top is where you lean through to kiss the Blarney Stone! It was so scary!

That evening we went out to a pub that happened to be hosting a jazz festival. We listened to this interesting band while we sipped our beers.

Again, the next day we woke up early and got on a bus for Dublin. 

We, of course, had to visit the Guinness Storehouse museum.
I learned how to pour a pint of Guinness and even got a certificate!

We stayed one last night in Dublin, then woke up to pack our bags and get on a bus to the airport to head to the Netherlands for the rest of the week!

I'm so excited to see what in the world you have all gotten up to! Link up below!
