Dublin with Kat and Zach

I just wrote about fun adventures with Kathleen and Zach in Germany, and now I will briefly share about our weekend before Germany we spent in Dublin. Zach had never been to Europe, thus we wanted to plan as much as possible! They came to Amsterdam for the first night and then we all flew to Dublin on Saturday morning for a quick weekend trip.

One of the highlights of our time in Dublin was the bike tour we did on Saturday. It was an all-day tour with multiple stops in between. We loved seeing the whole city, venturing to parts off of the beaten path, and being active.

Bryan: workin’ hard and lookin’ fresh

Social media is a beautiful thing  because through Instagram, my friend Hunter, figured out I was in Dublin and then sent a message to our mutual friend from Furman, True, who was there for the night as well (thanks hunter!). True happened to be studying art in London for the summer and was traveling to Dublin for the weekend. It is such a small world!

After we made the connection, True joined us for a late dinner on Saturday night.

After dinner, we went to two trendy bars in the city and also met up with one of Bryan’s former co-workers, Nate and his wife. He is working with PwC in Dublin!

On Sunday, Kathleen and Zach went to see the Cliffs of Moher, and so Bryan, True and I explored a nearby village, Dalkey. I have an Amsterdam friend from there and she gave us great recommendations for lunch spots. It was only 25 minutes away from Dublin by train and is absolutely worth the trip. It is gorgeous!

Kathleen and Zach spent the week exploring Amsterdam while Bryan and I worked. It was so special having them here to see our home and life.
