Living in Europe has many benefits. One of my favourites is that you can jump on a plane for a long weekend and escape to another country with a different history, language and culture! This is totally the opposite of living in Vancouver. The closest country with a different language and culture is Mexico, and that is still a 6 hour flight away! I digress. We decided to use the October ‘extra’ long weekend Berliners enjoyed for the German National Holiday (Oct 3rd) to explore the land of sheep, Guinness and green pastures: Ireland. The plan was to rent a car in Dublin and explore for 4 days. Our itinerary and more pictures after the jump!
