It's hard to take pictures because I don't want to get any of the kids in the pictures, and with a busy school of over 900 kids it's a bit of a challenge haha! And I know I keep bringing up all the silly little differences, but I don't want you to think that Ireland is nothing like home. It's actually so much ...

It's a small victory not being crammed in next to a stranger for the ...
... book, but we were able to get ones of Trinity College Library, the largest library in Ireland. Too bad we couldn't somehow capture the smell of the place-- it smelt so old & made us feel like we took a step back in time.
After Trinity College we hopped back on the bus and enjoyed seeing lush green gardens and old cathedrals from the top deck. We then got to Guinness Storehouse & weren't surprised to see almost everyone on the bus hop off for that ...
