This time last year, I had been feeling rather frustrated with the daily routine that was my life. Don't get me wrong, I loved my job and the people I worked with, but I was longing for something more. I found myself constantly looking up destinations on Pinterest every chance I got. I dreamed of visiting these places, meeting new people and eating and drinking the local cuisine and beer.
Ever since joining Pinterest, I have come across pictures of the Cliffs of Moher and have become obsessed with visiting them. But when I looked it up on Google Maps, I saw that it was on the opposite coast from Dublin and I didn't think the chances of visiting the Cliffs would be very likely if I ever visited Ireland. However, I was determined to at least try and even went as far as getting my international driver's permit from AAA before I left, but the idea of me driving on the opposite side of the road across Ireland didn't make my mom too excited. So, instead we found a day tour that took us from Dublin to the Cliffs and back.
The last stop on our grand European adventure was Ireland. We spent two days in Dublin and one day taking a tour of the Cliffs of Moher. We started our stay in Dublin by going to the place that Ireland is most known for, the Guinness factory!!!!!! People always told me that the Guinness was better in Ireland but I never believed them. I just thought it was that whole, "it's just because you were in Ireland" deal, but boy was I proved wrong. The beer really was better, smoother, sweeter and creamier than in the states. After the beer tasting, we headed into the heart of Dublin and explored the streets for a bit before I was hit by a massive wave of fatigue and was forced to retire to our hotel and sleep.
