A few days in Dublin, following Portugal during my spring break --
Dublin was awesome, I loved having a small, few day break back in an english-speaking country. It was like going home for a few days. In fact, it was a lot like Madison: cold weather, coffee shops everywhere, filled with enthusiastic drinkers. But, unlike Madison, where it's a lot of the college students mainly filling the bars, in Dublin, it really is a community past time. The pubs were packed, no matter what day it was, with people of all ages and groups. And, the affinity for Guinness is not overrated, they totally love it there.
My friend and I also got the opportunity to couch surf. It was my first time and i think it went spectacularly. The two guys we stayed with were super generous, friendly, and great story tellers. I highly recommend couch surfing (with a friend). Our couchsurfing friend also introduced us the game of rugby. We went with him to watch it at a pub, and as an American without ever seeing the sport, it's an absolutely hilarious but super impressive sport.
