Breakfast, Kilts, & Coffee – The Essentials for the Trip

Days one and two in Ireland our tour guide Espin woke us up bright and early and sat us down to have a nice little breakfast (I must say the coffee in Europe is SO good).

After breakfast, we were brought to a really cool street market area. At first, we all were under the impression that we would be going to an arcade because that is what our tour guide called it. Imagine our surprise when we walked up to a vintage styled marketplace! I must admit though, wandering through the marketplace and streets was amazing. It gave us a sense of adventure. Like HELLO we were in a foreign country far away from our parents, free, and ready to see new things.

Although walking around the streets was exhausting, it did not stop us from having little picture sessions in the streets. The constant cloudiness gave us perfect lighting to take pictures and keep these memories with us.

At one point we were so determined to take good pictures, in the middle of the lawn at Trinity College, Kay whipped out our uniform kilt from school… It’s safe to say we looked like complete idiots, but hey! We finally made good use of that stupid skirt.

After that we went to an art museum where it is safe to say Kay and I went a little crazy. The paintings there were so beautiful, and we did cry over a Monet, but we recuperated fast enough to take our classic pinky picture!

After walking around and seeing all the art we sat ourselves down at a cafe inside the museum and relaxed until it was time to go (but of course we just HAD to take more pictures).

Alas day one ended, and we were EXHAUSTED. We ate our dinner and passed out, excited to see what day two would bring us.
