Dublin, Ireland - (map)
I traveled through Ireland for three weeks and had some great times. I met interesting people, enjoyed the country's beautiful scenery, and drank many a Guinness. I also hit some lows, since I was there during 9/11 and watched the Twin Towers fall in a small village pub with the stunned locals. The outpouring of grief from this faraway country across the Atlantic was overwhelming.
I also wrote many stories about my time here, but they were erased by the faulty handheld device I'd typed saved them to. I can share my photos, but not much else. :-(
