The Hunt For Snow

With the help of accuweather we set out to look for snow, but all we could find was a whole lot of frost.  It was still mesmerizing, so I was not mad one bit.  We walked and walked looking everywhere for those magical snowflakes, but all we got were rosy cheeks and blue lips.  I will not be deterred! I will see snow, its just a matter of time, until then, we will just keep exploring and falling more in love with Ireland.

^^ I don’t know why I’m looking at the ground, but whatevs.

We also went on a church stalk, we literally walked up and down 3 times to see the age dynamic and vibe from the church, so if you’re in Dublin and you saw 2 suspicious people passing your church rubber necking to see what’s the deal.  Hi, you just met us.  We might pop in Sunday and blow your mind with this craziness.

 

Dublin Botanic Gardens

Sometimes all you want is a walk in the park, and when its the national botanic gardens you know you are going to be in for a treat.  Friendly squirrels following you around like you are in a Disney movie, ducks that are so chilled you wonder what’s in the water they swim in and beautiful conservatories that is a warm relieve to go into on a cold day.

The bus trip there was a slow painful trip, but getting to walk around and get lost in the beauty of the park is amazing!
