I apparently need more practice blogging as my first post a month or so ago was not successfully published. But no loss. I have successfully arrived in Ireland this morning. The flight was rather long but the second leg of it went by rather quickly as there were in-flight movies. The landscape was much different from what I'm accustomed to as there is actual greenery here instead of just dirt. Marie, Josh and myself arrived in Downtown Dublin from the Airport around noon. We weren't able to check in immediately so we dropped off our bags and spent the next two hours exploring the local area. There were a lot of small individual shops spotted throughout, though most weren't open as it is a Sunday. Currently we, joined by Peter and Jasmine, are relaxing in the hotel room attempting to stay awake and entertaining ourselves.
