Ireland- Dublin

The next morn after our wonderful enjoyable stay at the Pod park, we moved off at 6am on a 6hours drive to Dublin! Stopped by a petrol kiosk for breakfast. I must say tt i am pretty impressed by the efficiency of the petrol kiosk & how they have a wider range of delicious food compared to the ones we have here in SG. Their bf roll was mad awesome! I miss it alr. A typical Irish breakfast bap (its what the Irish call breakfast roll) consist of white & black blood sausage, hash brown, fried egg, bacon, mushroom, tomato. It is the best breakfast ive ever had. Not many can appreciate the taste of blood sausage, but i love it!

Upon reaching our hostel- Dublin international hostel, we attended a free walk tour which was pretty good. Dublin has several free walk tours & at the end of the tour, u HAVE TO tip the guide. They are doing this tour voluntarily.. Thus, they aren't paid by their respected companies. I wld suggest gg for tis free walk tour cause u get to see the city u are staying in in a better light & the history behind every building/castle. It was amazing. It lasted for about 3hours. They do have pit stops for breaks so it's not so bad.

After the tour, we headed to the city area for some shopping!! I shopped a lot at Penny's, F21, Monsoon & some other outlets. I wldn't say the shops there are cheaper than SG cause it's kinda the same? Which is why i shopped more at Penny's. I love how they have a wide range of girl stuff such as accessories (which are to die for), home furniture/decor, exercise equipment, etc. The list just goes on & on.

Dublin Day 2- June 1 2014

The next day we headed to the jump park which is a trampoline indoor place. Somewhat like the one we have in SG. Except they are more strict like they dont allow backflips & stuff. It's more for kids kinda place. Thank God the staff there knew my brother as he is a gymnast.. So they allowed him to do his backflips & stuff. It was my 2nd time seeing him do his thang. Which totally blew me away. He executed the backflips so soo well. 

After this tedious acitivity we headed back to shower & off we went to Henry street to shop!
