  • Day 44: ...Its Over (Dublin)

    Travel Journal from Ireland Dublin, Ireland | Sat Jun 26, 2010

    Tom started off the day with us by giving us a short coach tour of Dublin. We got to get out for a bit and see: the famine ship (whose name I don’t remember) which was the only ship to not lose any person on its way to America; the famine memorial (it was quite sad, a bunch of statues clearly starving who all had a haunted expression); a beautiful …

    Travel Journal from England Ormskirk, England | Wed Jun 02, 2010

    Sunday night was my brothers last night in Liverpool, so Jocelyn and I went to meet up with him and George and Hannah and their friends from Liverpool Uni at the Cavern Club. The Cavern Club is where the Beatles used to perform before they were famous. I'm not a huge Beatles fan, but it was still entirely cool to be hanging out in a place that is so important …

  • Bank Holiday Weekend

    Travel Journal from United Kingdom York, United Kingdom | Sun May 30, 2010

    This past weekend was Bank Holiday Weekend.  We traveled as a small group and used York as a base of operations.  We stayed at a wonderful B&B called the Warren's Guest House.  The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive; if we had a question the owner especially would stop what he was doing and try to find us an answer as quickly as possible.  On our …
