Found the first stop for the Dublin Bus Tour, which is a 24 hour hop on hop off bus. The bus takes you to all the major points in Dublin, which include Trinity College, St. Stephens Green, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Temple Bar and many other well known places. I decided to take the bus around the whole route, trying to figure out what there is to see and how close everything is to each other.
The next day I still had sometime left to hop on and off of the Bus, so I wanted to check out Pheonix park. The park is the largest enclosed park in Europe and also contains the Dublin Zoo. (Random fact for my MGM readers, I found out that the MGM lion that is shown in front of every movie was born and raised in the Dublin Zoo and his name was Leo. Also that they only had 2 days to film the clip and the best shot they could get was of the Lion yawning and then dubbing in the roar afterwards. I thought it was pretty cool.) The park also has the Wellington Monument, that was dedicated to the Duke of Wellilngton after defeating Napolean at Waterloo. After the park I decided to do the Historical Walking Tour, this tour starts at Trinity College and takes you to the major points in Dublin going over the history.
I'm really bad at blogging, so hopefully my entry's get a little better as I go on. Miss you all and know that I'm still alive. I'll try to update as much as I can.
