a delightful stroll around trinity…

After numerous days of not being able to locate trinity college, thanks to hordes of people, and just our confused lost tourist vibe, we finally managed to make it in without looking like complete idiots.  We did manage to get in a lot of peoples photos, regardless of duck running.  Its definitely worth all the trouble, its a beautiful college that makes you just want to go in and pretend to be a student and study your butt off.  Maybe even walk the grounds with a book under your arm, looking for the perfect place to read it.  Yes, it’s that kind of college.  The strap on some suspenders, grow a beard and get some glasses kind.

Instead of going into the expensive library we just milled around and really got to experience the free outside!

Its a great place to spend a blue sky day!

Do you want to go to the seaside?

You know what’s a good motto to live by? Just do it! Don’t wait for that perfect day to do something, or you might never end up doing it.  That’s especially true here in Ireland.  If you keep waiting for that perfect sunny day to get out you are going to surely miss out on a lot!  It does get sunny here, but more often than not its raining, and boy, do I love it! Its so much easier to do stuff in colder weather, than in boiling hot weather.  A little rain never hurt anyone and its rather romantic to take a stroll in the rain and just go explore.  Ireland is green for a reason, it rains a lot! but that’s what makes it so beautiful to me, the beautiful grey skies, with the vivid greenery is like something out of a painting, and when the skies are blue, its bluer than the bluest, blue you’ve ever seen! Blue times infinity!

I’ve walked on a lot of beaches in my life, but the beaches in Ireland is where all Indie songs are probably written.  You just expect to see someone breaking up, getting engaged or just throwing that engagement ring in the ocean, Yeah its that kind of ocean.  The moody kind, where dogs come to poop and rocks look elegant.  Where you can find seashells and tilling of a house from times past?  So get your coat, grab an umbrella if you want and go for a walk!
