Hello from sunny and frigid Dublin! Oy, traveling can take it out of you. But, we are here and loving this great city. Apparently Europe is having a cold snap and all of Europe is hunkering in for really, really cold temperatures. It is in the high 20s today, but the wind makes it feel cooler. Michael and I were laughing that Dublin in January is similar to Iceland in April.
Despite the cold temperatures the sun makes the city feel vibrant and alive. Today I boarded the hop-on hop-off double decker bus and took a tour of the city. Then we went to Howth, a city on the ocean 20 min north of Dublin, for some fish and chips and views of neighboring islands.
Tomorrow I'm off to a few museums. Supposedly there's a genealogy office that provides information about your Irish roots. I know... cool, huh.
