DAILY PHOTO JOURNAL – JULY 2012
7.1.2012 – The last thing my mom said to me before I left for Ireland was “Don’t go to any Nicki Minaj concerts” … too bad for me, she’s sold out in Dublin.
7.2.2012 – Something is wrong with this picture. Especially since the Budweiser is on sale for €4.49 off…
7.3.2012 – Meagan and I went to the Wax Museum today. Those pictures are creepy so I decided to spare you until I post them in my Ireland album. You just wait! Tomorrow is Dublin Castle and Guinness! And then I saw this on the way home from our Choral Evensong service.
7.4.2012 – Happy Fourth of July! Guess how we got to rehearsal today…a freakin’ horse and carriage! Awesome.
7.5.2012 – Left Dublin today and headed toward Belfast. On our way, we stopped to see Knowth. The colors are so vivid here!
7.6.2012 – We made it to Belfast! We visited the Titanic museum and had our first actual concert!
7.7.2012 – It’s kind of blurry but this is an awesome taxi that David and I took back to the college. The modes of transportation today were awesome. Train and old taxi! So much fun.
7.8.2012 – Today we had tea at an old Post Office in Lisbane!
7.9.2012 – Crossed a rope bridge about 100 feet in the air today. It was wonderful!

7.11.2012 – Hanging with the locals in Howth!
7.12.2012 – Welcome to Dingle. Good luck ordering!
7.13.2012 – My favorite Irish pub experience. People would ask to sit-in and the whole pub would get quiet to hear the person sing or play. Fantastic!
7.14.2012 – Feeding a cow at the Cliffs of Moher!
7.15.2012 – Hiking around Castlegregory and we come across a red lake. I wasn’t sure why it was red but David informed me it is because of the iron deposits up in the mountain. Fun facts!
7.16.2012 – The best ice cream I’ve had in a long time. Murphy’s honeycomb ice cream. Made right in Dingle!
