Dublin

For a long time I was cynical towards my American friends who wanted to visit Ireland.  I meant nothing against the place, it just seemed fairly cliche- green hills, castles, leprechauns, shamrocks, kissing stones upsidedown- all these things could be summed up with the qualifier “lame”.  However, when I was trying to figure out which European tour date I was going to catch The Tallest Man on Earth at, I remembered all the wonderful things I read about Third Floor Espresso, and decided the two were more than enough to overcome my anti-Irish prejudice (dating a half-Irish girl might have had something to do with this too.)

Anyway, I was glad to discover that Dublin is an awesome city.  Dublin’s city center is very concise and is easy to explore by foot or bicycle.  Also, it’s an amazing culinary city, as I discovered there’s a lot of delicious things to taste. Some highlights include:

Big thanks to Jordan for meeting up with me and making the trip far more enjoyable.  Vacations are more fun when filled with good conversations.

About mjbutterworth

I love drinking/making coffee, making/listening to music, riding bicycles, and reading about theology. I also like blogs that talk about those things. Most of all, I love Jesus because his gospel has changed my life.
