Dublin bound...

Hello all...just popping in before heading off to Dublin for the weekend...the weather here in the UK has been horrendously windy for the last 3-4 days, but things seems to have settled now, so I'm hoping that a) the flight won't be too bumpy, and b) that I don't spend all weekend wrestling with an umbrella that keeps being blown inside-out.

This is a long-overdue trip for me. I lived in Dublin in 2002-3, and so generally get across three or four times per year to catch up with friends...however, I only made it once in 2011 for my good friend R's birthday. So, we planned this weekend as a nice, cozy, relaxing catch-up after the busy-ness of the festive season... I'm anticipating some time spent in nice cozy pubs lingering over a coffee or warming glass of red wine, some yummy pasta from Manifesto in Rathmines, and lots of conversation....

The photo above is one by Giles Norman - he is an amazing photographer. I bought this and another of his prints when I left Dublin as a memento of my time there (sadly, something else that is in storage in Sydney...). This one is of Trinity College, but I've added a few more below for you to enjoy...
