Old amongst the New
Well i'm back after a night out on the town and meeting several people from France,Spain and South Africa, the two from South Africa were pretty cool young guys and we got along pretty well they left dublin just a few hours ago as like me found out it's not cheap here so they got out and were headed to Galway, as for myself I'm thinking tomorrow of hitting Cork and seeing the cliffs of Moher and then heading up north to Giants causeway and of course have to kiss the Blarney stone but other than that I need to geto ut of Dublin also just too expensive to hang out for very long.

The Irish people are definately a friendly bunch once you start talking, but as with any bigger area people seem to be in a hurry to get to where ever they are going.It's fun to watch the cars and motorcycles speeding around like watching a race LOL!! I'm planning on getting out here shortly and taking some pictures now that i have new batteries for my camera yesterday seemed to be my DAY of Running out of battery power. I'm going to hit Trinity college and see the book of kells, the dublin castle and some really nice looking park areas so be on the look out for upcoming pictures later today.The weather here is rainy but humid almost little too humid i would think for Ireland, fortunately I'm used to this kind of weather so i can't complain too much.The biggest problem is finding my way around because there are lots ofl ittle side streets i did manage to find a busy street yesterday that had lots of musicians and all sorts of other stuff no cars but tons of people so I'm going back with the ole camera and getting pics of that also, well for now i'm going to get out and get these pictures so I can post thme for you all to see, til then you'll just have to sit on the edge of your seat and wait til i'm back LOL!! I'm all set just made my bookings for a hostel in Cork which I'll be heading to in the morning via bus being trains are lil spendy here so i opted for that instead.

I'll be leaving Dublin early in the morning to walk to the central bus station and if all goes as planned I'll be leaving for Cork at 8am to arrive sometime around 2pm I'll be staying in Cork for 3 days til the 10th then after that who knows where......yep you got you just have to wait and see where i decide to go next, unbearable isn't it just not knowing where I'll be going......gotta keep you interested don't I? LOL

hey john all sounds fun!! good you are seeing cork, i didn't see that and regret it but in the interest of time we had to choose north or south. you saw my giants causeway pic right? :) also the rope bridge is close by and that's neat too, it's pretty freaky to walk across it

I stayed at the Kinlay House in Cork, and it was pretty good. So maybe you can look into that aswell. That's if you enjoyed the Kinlay House in Dublin.
