Picture Monday

So world, I'm going to do something a little different for today's blog.

That's right. PHOTOS!

From Ireland and Scotland.

This one is from the Guinness Storehouse. That's right...we started off our trip with alcohol.

The view from the Guinness Storehouse's Gravity Bar - complete with a complimentary pint.

Dublin traffic? Yea, it's insane. I don't know if it's a UK thing or what, but JEEESSUS I thought we were gunna die.

Beautiful sunset photo, courtesy of mother nature and the river Liffey

Saw these sitting on the outside of the Temple Bar. Thought they were pretty.

Trinity College - far prettier than anything we got around here.

St. Stephen's Green was pretty spiffy too.

Unreasonably pretty.

We managed to find the only American license plate in Ireland - at a Coyote Ugly themed bar. And's even a Delaware one! :) REPRESENT.
Oh Edinburgh are one dramatic SOB.
We, of course, had to visit the Queen's boat (HMY Britania)
Seriously long flight of steps...
But the view was SO worth it. (Cliffs of Moher)
Oh..why did Cromwell have to tear the roofs off everything? Him and his damn fetishes.
Oh, come didn't think the alcohol ended with the Guinness Storehouse, did you? (Jameson Distillery)

Oh Jim Larkin. I hear he helped out with some little tiff the industries were having in 1913
So yea. I think I might do this every Monday - post up pictures, that is. What do you think? Good idea, bad idea? I'm kind of playing around with different things for the blog. :) Have a good day!


  1. Love the idea of picture Monday. I just started a Tuesday thing on my blog and will be doing a Friday one too. I think it's a great idea, it will make you post at least once a week and will keep you motivated!! YAY!

    Also, I was in Ireland in January. Much colder and darker. These photos are great. I LOVE the one with the Robin.

  2. Dara - I think it was some sort a finch or small bird like that - I'm pretty sure it wasn't a robin. But yea, it just sat there while I took the photo, which made me so happy. I can't imagine Ireland in January - we went at the beginning of April, and I was freezing even then.

    Yea, I'm thinking that on both this blog and my other one I'll be doing at least one themed day a week.

  3. That tree was amazing and the puffy bird was adorable. Irland has to be one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, I think some of it is really captured in picture of the Cliffs of Moher.

  4. Cailyn: It was fantastic I loved it, and the sense of history that's there is just amazing.

  5. Did you love Ireland? I went there for a week and just hung out in Dublin before I came to Poland. I need to go back. There is no place in the world I have ever felt such a strong need to go back to!

  6. Tina: absolutely loved it. i plan on going back as soon as i have enough money to do so :P


Because I'm needy.
