Today was a great day! We slept in and got a late start on breakfast. With a map in our hands, we walked the 3 miles to the heart of Dublin. Straight down the shopping district of O’Connell Street and onto Trinity College. The first stop was the Book of Kells. To some, it is just a book but to me, it is a masterpiece of artwork and heritage. The Book of Kells is taken after the four gospels as illustrated by at least 3 monks and artisans.
We ended a bit early and decided to take a walk around the town. Two more great stops along our path were the Christchurch Cathedral and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Both cathedrals were great masterpieces of architecture and we were in awe of the stained glass and workmanship. There was only one small thing that bothered us about the St. Patrick’s Cathedral; towards the back of the cathedral was their gift shop.
Now, my friends, we come to the end of the journey. It is 7:30pm here and in 12 hours we will be heading to the airport for our 10:35am flight straight from Dublin, Ireland to Chicago, Illinois. It has been an awesome 17-day trip and we are ready to head back to our lives in Wisconsin. So much has been learned over this trip and not only has Greg and I have grown closer but we know have a better understand of our path in life together. We hope that you all have enjoyed our journals and pictures as much as we have had sharing them all with you.
Until our next trip (San Francisco, California – October 2007), may health and happiness follow you wherever you may go.
