Trip Log

Notes Actions
OMG I can't believe the hospitality Brent and I received in Dublin. On Brent's last day of work in Edmonton before we left, he went for after-work beers at the Irish Club with his co-workers. I joined them a little later. Brent's old boss, Mike, turned up and we had a good chat and got some advice about what to do in Ireland. He suggested that we contact his sister to arrange to stay at Trinity College while in Dublin, so a few days before we left Germany, Brent gave the sister, Chris, a shout. Chris arranged for us to stay at Trinity, got us vouchers for breakfast at The Buttery (on campus), met us for coffee, got us complementary entrance to see the Book of Kells and the Old Library, and then took us out for an amazing walk to The Sugar Loaf in Wicklow. I sure hope we can reciprocate one day - we had such a great time.
