"One of the greatest things in human life is the ability to make plans. Even if they never come true - the joy of anticipation is irrevocably yours. That way one can live many more than just one life."

Maria Trapp-The Story of the Trapp Family Singers - Ch. 12 p. 4

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

We made it! 

Google Maps failed me for the first time and as we walked for 20 minutes from the Dublin bus station, never getting closer to where our hotel actually was. A friendly cabbie rescued us and we are sitting in the lobby having a sandwich and waiting for our room to be prepared. It's lovely and busy and friendly and exciting here and we've only been off the bus a half an hour!

Doug is in heaven. He and the cabbie yucked it up the whole ride here. In our 5 minute ride we made between our wise choice to rent a car outside of Dublin to the chip Canadians have on their shoulder about Americans (his words, not ours!) shared by Irelanders about Dubliners. :)

As soon as we dump our stuff in our room it's off to Trinity College for us and a 2 hour historical walking tour of the city. Pictures to come!

Love to everyone - Amy
