August 2nd

Guy...I might be going back to Ireland. I've got my $100 flight voucher from my trip last year and some miles saved up, and since I'm not picky about dates, my dad and I found a really great deal. This is slightly unreal. And I'd be there for a week this time! I would actually be able to take a day trip out into the countryside. Hell, I could take two day trips. There's one that goes to Belfast and Giant's Causeway and another that goes to Cork. I may just go to Cork on my own on a bus though, although the tour may be cheaper...but it's also nice to just have some freedom. I could even stay overnight in Cork.

I've spent the last hour looking up things to do outside of Dublin. I'd be staying in Dublin (which means I could visit Trinity College and DĂșn Laoghaire again!), but I want to go around the country a bit, too. I've found some other places that are only about 45 minutes from Dublin by train, so those are more options...

The only downside is that the flight is one of those horrible ones that's overnight so I'd get to Dublin at like 8:00 AM and then sleep the day away because I probably wouldn't get much sleep on the plane. When I flew from Minneapolis to London (longer than JFK to Dublin, which is what I'd be doing this time), I didn't sleep at all, so when I got to London I was exhausted. However, I had no jet lag while I was there, so maybe it's worth it.

I hate long plane rides. But my god, I fucking love Ireland.
