I lived in Dublin for more than 3 months so take that into account before you want to argue about what I say in this video.
Tell me what you think!
This is what happened when Britney Spears fucked a Leprechaun…
All kidding aside, I was terrified, mortified, and hysterically laughing when I saw this walk into my hostel in Dublin at 4am. My God, Dublin is a fucking crazy city – don’t bring your children here, that’s for sure!
I am a real person and not just a boring ‘travel-writer-person’ and so I’ve decided that I’m going to start sharing some of the real-life aspects of traveling and living in hostels abroad. 🙂
This is what happens when you try to court a girl from Spain!!! This is actually just part of a hilarious and awesome night in Dublin. When it gets really late and you are just hanging out in the hostel, funny things tend to happen. I like to call this kind of thing “Hostel Shenanigans.” (warning: no courting actually happened ;P) This is just a really funny girl that decided it was time to attack hahaha.

The other day I decided that I wanted to drop by London for a week or two; it is such a nice luxury to be able to do this. But, if you are in Dublin, Ireland, it is really no luxury at all. There are a number of ways to get to London from Dublin and they don’t cost much at all.
I will talk about how I took the ferry and train to get to London from Dublin and then I’ll cover the other two typical ways to make this journey. As well, I will give you links to all of the websites needed to book your tickets and get more information. Aren’t I nice 😀
Everyone thinks that Ireland is going to be a place where the rivers flow with beer and the girls all have red hair. Let’s address the first part of this. In Ireland, specifically Dublin since that is where I am currently, beer does not flow freely from the tap. It is expensive!!! Read: the beer in Ireland is EXPENSIVE. And, there are rules for the consumption of alcohol here! RULES haha. For instance, alcohol can not be sold in stores after 10pm. This is normal for most places in the west, but it came as a shock to me considering Ireland is known for its drinking culture.
But, back to the point of this article. Good Friday.
I have been in Dublin, Ireland for over two months now and I have to say that I feel a lot different about this place now than I did after I first arrived here. When you start to actually live in a city instead of just going through it as a tourist, you see things that you would have otherwise missed; you see the real city.
I don’t know how to start this except to say that the past week has been pretty shitty. These are the days when you wish you had a group of good friends around to support you and help you feel better. When you are traveling alone, you generally have no one in which to confide, no one that can or will sympathize with what you are going through, and basically no one that cares about much other than themselves and their own adventure. This is great when you are having a good time, but quite depressing when you actually need to talk to someone. Now, some of these moments may be those that define you as a person, but they are by no means easy or fun to go through.
So now, maybe I should elaborate a bit about what is going on with me, and has been for the last week or so.
