Dublin in a Day

Arriving to Dublin in late afternoon, I settled into the Airbnb I had reserved, located in the Temple Bar area, within walking distance to all of the major attractions.  My friend and I went to a nearby grocery store for some breakfast and snack items (along with some local wine) and went out to dinner.  We had Irish excursions planned for the following two days, so we didn’t really explore Dublin until our last day in the City.  We had wonderful weather and I was so excited to be in Ireland!  Dublin is a very walk-able city.  I asked these two beautiful lassies for their photo…

Trinity College’s “Book of Kells” was amazing!  The Book of Kells, created in 800 AD, is composed of four gospels of the New Testament.  The room itself is magnificent!

Rockefeller Center in Spring

Rockefeller Center in the Spring is beautiful!  My second day in New York City started with a view of the One World Trade Center, followed by a walk through Little Italy and Chinatown and then a quick subway ride to Rockefeller Center.  I stopped a man in a business suit and asked him what there was to see in the area.  He told me about this area behind the Center with beautiful tulips and fountains.
