Back from Dublin!

Oh Yes! We got back from Dublin on Wednesday night, and what a great time we had. It's a beautiful, huge city with alot to do and see, and we didn't half do some travelling! We must have walked miles, but it was very enjoyable.

The first three days we stayed just outside Dublin centre at a place called Tallaght, it was a three star hotel called Tallaght Cross and was amazing! Huge flat-screen TV, huge bed and was so fresh and modern. The only little problem we had was we had some food and drink that we had bought stolen from our room!!!! Those pesky Polish cleaners... We had them back though, plus we were given free breakfast for the rest of the stay!

The second hotel we stayed at was called Citi-Hotel in Temple Bar, the centre of Dublin. The room was a complete opposite to the Tallaght Cross, it was tiny, with a crap TV and there was an obscene amount of noise coming from the streets filled with bars and clubs below. That didn't detract though, and we still had an amazing time.

We spent a fortune, but we enjoyed it, every-bit of it! We didn't take many photos sadly as I forgot my camera!!!! Not to worry, everything of interest can be seen on the internet.

One good thing we took on holidays with us with the Sony PSP. Never have I owned such a useful gadget. On the way travelling there we used it as an MP3 player on the train. On the aircraft we watched some TV shows that I had recorded to put on there, and while we were there we played games in our spare time and even surfed the internet when there were free internet areas. Damn this machine is awesome!

I bought a great CD, "Guess I'm Dumb" is a great compilation of Beach Boys songs sung by other people, and had some real killers on there, what's more, I had it for a bargain price, which makes it even better value for money! Cooooooooooooool.

I'll write more soon!
