Dublin After Dark

The short days are finally over and all of sudden its spring, night time comes by way later these days, and the days are glorious.  The perfect, just warm enough weather to really go meander in and not feel uncomfortable, every time I think I can’t possibly fall more in love with Dublin, I fall harder than before.  At this rate I’m going to start stalking Dublin!

Walking around everywhere and anywhere has been the most amazing treat for me, walking around in a city is the best way to explore all the little nooks and crannies, we walk the same route into the city every day, but every time I see something new.  After church yesterday Carl and I decided to wait until it got dark to go take a walk in the city. Since we’ve been here we haven’t really been out at night, mostly because we’ve been too tired from day time activities.

Dublin at night is when the city comes alive! People walking to restaurants, coming home from a hard day at the pub, couples strolling down twinkle light streets, parents playing with their kids trying to tucker them out before bed and dogs everywhere, getting taken on numerous walks.

Walking around after dark felt like such a freeing thing to do.  Walking without fear, with no specific reason in mind and just wanting to scream “I LOVE YOU DUBLIN”, is amazing.
